Everyone in Sugar Bay on Florida's Gulf Coast refers to Maddie Schaeffer as "Baby" because of her sickly childhood. Even her spouse Wayne, who call his new boat "baby" tells her she is "the baby" while the craft is a "generic baby." However, when Wayne takes his new ship out for a test run, the steering wheel fails and he crashes. As he dies in Maddie's arms, he promises her that he will send her an angel because he vowed never to break her heart. She believes her beloved Wayne.
A year has passed and Maddie still expects an angel to appear. Her uncle hires a stranger, Chase, who was found drifting at sea with no memory or identification. Maddie believes that Wayne sent Chase as her angel, but though he cannot recall anything he knows he is no angel. Still, he finds himself attracted to Maddie and soon they join forces to try to learn who he truly is.
Though a bit more inspirational than readers normally receive from Tina Wainscott (see A TRICK OF THE LIGHT and IN A HEARTBEAT), BACK IN BABY'S ARMS retains the awesome author's ability to make the impossible seem feasible. The story line is taut, poignant, and exhilarating as two damaged psyches find healing in love. Ms. Wainscott provides her growing audience with another magnificent reading experience that is becoming the norm from this sensational superior storyteller.
