During the night of a storm, an Appalachian girl delivers a baby and disappears. The next morning, Raymond Toker finds the baby under a bush and takes to the mountain roads to find her a home. While Turner carries out his quest, the child’s father, Truman, with “teeth as rotten as his soul,” drives his battered car along the same paths. Met with tremendous acclaim when first published in 1990, A Good Baby is widely considered among Rooke’s best novels.
