British author Hill ( Shakespeare Country ) writes with exquisite sensitivity on the worlds of meaning in the word ``family.'' She relates her life before and after marriage to Stanley Wells, a professor, and their joy in their first child, Jessica. A second daughter, born prematurely, survived only 33 days; Hill makes Imogen's brief life unforgettable and the parents' wrenching loss palpable. They later find great comfort in the birth of Clemency and in their memory of their cherished ``lily of a day.'' This is a book that speaks to us about the need for love and hope in the fight against despair. First serial to Woman magazine. (Jan.)
