Willa Sue is going to her third foster home and she doesn't hold out much hope that this will be any better than the others.  She just doesn't want to end up back in the Daylily Home for Children.  She is placed with sisters Ruth and Naomi.  They are former African missionaries who are a bit eccentric.  They raise chickens and bake cakes.  In spite of her doubts, Willa Sue settles in and is soon part of the routine.  But try as she might, she just can't discover the magic ingredient that makes all the cakes just right for the person they are baked for.
