Through shifting perspectives the story of a homeless teen with a baby befriended by a woman who works for a non-profit helping those living in poverty. Despite the objections of her husband, Heidi brings Willow and infant Ruby home. Heidi ignores her husband, daughter, and job to focus on her foundlings. As Chris grows suspicious of Willow and begins to investigate her, he knows her presence could cause problems for his family, but has no idea the scale of the problems coming. As with her debut novel, Mary Kubica builds suspense in Pretty Baby by having events from the past intertwined with the present and aftermath. Kubica also drops a twist worthy of this layered thriller.
