"Picoult writes with a fine touch, a sharp eye for detail, and a firm grasp of the delicacy and complexity of human relationships."
-The Boston Globe
"Picoult has become a master-almost a clairvoyant-at targeting hot issues and writing highly readable page-turners about them . . . It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong."
-The Washington Post

Her journey takes her back to her hometown, her father and Jake her first love. Eventually she tracks down the mother who abandoned her 20 years before. The two get reaquainted and Paige learns enough about herself to know she does not want to abandon her husband and child the way her mother does. The rest of the book is about her fight to get back her husband and child with help from some very unexpected sources.
It was a touching and beautiful story. Several times while reading this book I had to brush away tears. I have given great praise to the other books Ms. Picoult has written, but now this is by far my favorite and would make a wonderful introduction to those who have not read any of her other works.
I do think I need to include a special note to the squeamish like me. The character of Nicholas is a heart surgeon. There are three or four heart operations GREATLY detailed in this book. The descriptions are GRAPHIC. I was absolutley shocked when I came across the first one, and then learned to skip those parts in the subsequent operations. Other than that, it was a perfect read.
