It is the spring of 1964. People in the small resort town of Pine Lake, Wisconsin are skittish when a stranger is found unconscious in the park. His head wounds suggest he had been severely beaten. He subsequently slips into a coma. With nothing in his pockets and no one coming forward, his identity remains a mystery. 

       Nurse Julia Parsons is enamored with the sleeping stranger and takes a special interest in his care. His waking only complicates matters when he has no recollection of who he is or what happened to him.

        Overlooked clues send the couple on a journey across the state in search of his past.

BORN YESTERDAY is Joe's first book.
