Roberts, Willo Davis.
||Fourteen year old Teddi is trying to
come to grips with her parents deaths just four months
ago. She doesn't know what she would be doing or who
she would be living with if Mamie hadn't opened her home.
Mamie was their next door neighbor and really helped Teddi
through those horrible months when her mother was dying.
Now Mamie has a new person showing up on her doorstep.
Dora shows up with suitcases in hand and very
pregnant. She tells Mamie that she was married to
Mamie's son Ricky who has been killed in a airplane
accident. Mamie doesn't know what to think since she
really hasn't heard much from Ricky after he moved to
California. So Dora is welcomed as the new baby when
he is born. But something is just not right.
And Teddi is going to find out what.
