Lloyd is afraid of coyotes, illness and independence. He does not want to leave his mother and travel to the country to escape the flu epidemic. Once there, he finds himself bundled into a wagon on a stormy night, a tiny nameless baby thrust into his arms. He must get the baby to safety, but to do so he must drive the wagon along a deserted, muddy road in rain, thunder and darkness. When the wagon slips sideways into a ditch, Loyd faces an even greater test.

A Look Inside
First Chapter
Uncle John stumbled out of the bedroom with the baby in his arms.
"Alice is terribly sick," he said. "And there's no milk for the baby."
Lloyd stared at him. "Do you think it's influenza?" he whispered.
Slowly Uncle John nodded. His face was as white as paper. His forehead was covered with drops of sweat. "You and the baby have to get away from here or you'll catch it," he said.
