Libby is a born caretaker, although not by choice. Her parents bred her specifically to care for her severely retarded older sister when they are gone. At only nineteen, Libby is already Mama to Baby. Unfortunately, Libby has convinced herself that no one will ever want to marry her with a thirty-year-old Baby. Clearly Mick wouldn't. He knows all the family's darkest secrets. Mick loves Libby. He's even willing to take on Baby. But he hesitates to propose. How can he know Libby wouldn't say yes out of sheer desperation?
