When the Earth Moves Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of When the Earth Moves

Cameron McGrath, a wealthy New York lawyer, is stunned to discover a family secret. His mother, who left when he was a child, had a daughter named Katie, and Katie had a newborn named Callie. Cameron never knew he had a sister (Katie), much less a niece. He is told this information by Jo Ellen Tremaine, a woman from California. Cameron's long-lost sister and mother perished in an earthquake while the baby survived, and Jo wants to adopt Callie. She came to New York to persuade Cam to sign a paper giving her the right to adopt the baby. But before he is willing to do that, he wants to spend time with Jo and see what kind of mother she would be. Through it all, he discovers more about his family, and also that he has strong feelings for Jo. He just hopes that his indecisiveness about signing the paper does not make Jo hate him.
