Meanwhile, Eli Silver, the local pediatrician, has lost a son in an auto accident and a wife (temporarily) in the backwash of grief. And Elizabeth Bean, a college counselor, is unwillingly pregnant. So from Bean through Silver to Sorenson, there's an intricate, emotionally-fraught triple play: an adoption is arranged. Tendrils of responsibility w ind around all this: Phil's relationship with his illiterate black students; Dr. Silver's guilt over his dead son; Elizabeth's single-occasion lover, the father of her child, a wacko English professor."--Kirkus Reviews ; VG/FINE.
