I have become a HUGE Jodi Picoult fan lately. In fact, I’ve showed great discipline in NOT going and buying ALL of her books at one time. :)
I read The Pact sometime last year, and a few weeks ago picked up Change of Heart and Handle With Care. Here’s my review on Change of Heart.
It was “heart wrenching”. :) I loved it and give it 5 stars! Will I ever give less stars to one of her books?
The acclaimed #1 “New York Times” bestselling author presents a spellbinding tale of a mother’s tragic loss and one man’s last chance at gaining salvation.
Can we save ourselves, or do we rely on others to do it? Is what we believe always the truth?
One moment June Nealon was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to happen.
For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens that changes everything for him. Now, he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June’s eleven-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes, and the rage of a mother who has lost her child.
Would you give up your vengeance against someone you hate if it meant saving someone you love? Would you want your dreams to come true if it meant granting your enemy’s dying wish?
Once again, Jodi Picoult mesmerizes and enthralls readers with this story of redemption, justice, and love.
My thoughts: This book will tug at your heart in more ways than one. Just when you think someone has done something horrendous…well, read it and love it.
I can’t wait to read another!
