There is a baby on the doorstep, and a skeleton woman is biding time before the truth comes out. Rose Anthony’s life has just become much more complicated…
Soon-to-be-fifty Rose Anthony finds an abandoned baby outside her kitchen door. Bogged down in the drama of an impending birthday, a serious row with her lover and the anxiety of waiting to hear how her wall hanging has fared in the Stacy Competition, there’s no room for this dilemma. Scrawled on a card in black felt tip, the words For Rose Anthony leave no doubt that the baby was left for her, but whose baby is it?
