Description

A regular at the #1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list, Jodi Picoult crafts stories about family, love, and redemption. Here Picoult tells the tale of Edward Warren, an estranged son who faces a monumental decision when his father is left comatose after a terrible car accident. Edward wants to terminate life support, but his sister Cara wouldn't think of it. As the dilemma tears the family apart, Edward must examine whether his decision is based in mercy, or if he's subconsciously punishing his father for the fight that drove him to leave home years ago.

Professional reviews

"Picoult's latest continues her penchant for embracing controversial topics. Each of the well-cast narrators portrays a different character in the novel. As an ensemble, they complement one another without diffusing the story of a family that is faced with the ultimate medical dilemma--whether or not to move forward with the euthanasia of a family member. Luke, a world-renowned wolf species conservationist, has suffered a traumatic brain injury. Now, his grown children must decide the moral imperative between survival and sacrifice--a situation, in principle, that is often faced by wolves. Mark Zeisler's portrayal of Luke is especially poignant as Luke tells his story from the past while he hangs on via life support. As Luke, Zeisler shares a wealth of information about wolf behavior, interaction, and intelligence. The insights into wolf pack dynamics draw striking analogies to the story, creating a strongly unified story and presentation. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
