Kindred Journeys by Marjorie Tapley-Olson

If Martha couldn't persuade Farley to get hitched with a baby coming, what will happen when he learns there's more than one? Unable to take care of babies and pursue him without money, she heads home with the help of sympathetic truck drivers. But a series of tragic events--having to flee a father furious at her unmarried state, a drunken assault by a man who seemed to be helping her, a car crash and a family tragedy separate her from the babies and leave her numb with grief. Her story intertwines with that of her children years later. Andy, a police detective, and Francesca, a nurse, meet in a writing class. They begin to suspect they're related, and set out to find a mother they never knew. What they discover leads them to a woman who babbles about babies with car names and tragic happenings. When she dies, three letters and a scrap of paper are the only possessions they have from a mother who seems to lose children like other people lose keys. But to Andy, the letters are clues, and they're off on a series of journeys, learning they aren't the only babies born to Martha, and arriving at a discovery they could never have foreseen.
