The stolen child : a novel / Ann Hood.

Hood, Ann, 1956- (author.).


For decades, Nick Burns has been haunted by a decision he made as a young soldier in World War I, when a French artists he'd befriended thrust both her paintings and her baby into his hands -- and disappeared. In 1974, with only months left to live, Nick enlists Jenny, a college dropout desperate for adventure, to help him unravel the mystery. The journey leads them through Parisian galleries and provincial towns and to a surprising place: the Museum of Tears, the life's work of a lonely Italian craftsman. Determined to find the baby ad the artist, hopeless romantic jenny and curmudgeonly Nick must reckon with regret, betrayal, and the lives they've left behind.
