Description


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.

    I'd give this book infinite stars if possible!! I love how the storyline intertwined with the lives of the characters and the ultimate surprise at the ending makes this definitely a "tear-jerking" book. I caught myself crying on the subway on my way home from work, while reading this book. One moment I laughed and the next I reached for tissue. I loved it. This is defined let the best novels I've ever read in my life! (And I've read a lot of novels)

    This book reminded me sort of the GreenMile. I didn't like the way the book ended.

    Loved this book. Haven't read too much of her because I had to get used to her style. This one was very heart wrenching to say the least.
