Paige was raised primarily by her dad since her mother left when she was only five years old. Now that she has become a mother, will she be able to stick around for her son?

There was something about Paige I really liked in this book, but I‘m still struggling with the idea of her husband. He redeemed himself (without giving spoilers) but he annoyed me through most of it.

Overall not many characters to have to remember and simple plot to follow.

I really enjoyed this book although I struggled to get into it at first. It took me ages to read the first part of the book but then I couldn‘t put it down for the rest of it. Such a good book, I love how she can write so well as so many completely different personalities.

Jodi Picoult is a gifted writer. I have forgotten how powerful her stories can be! She will continue to be one of my most favorite authors.

I'm normally a fan of Picoult books, so it's shocking to me how much I hated this one. I'm actually surprised I was even able to finish it. I found all of the characters incredibly annoying and unbelievable. Worst if all, I never cared about the outcome. Overall, a huge disappointment.

Late-night reading (LNR) with Picoult. This woman is a true storyteller and she will draw you into her magic!

Could go work out...but it's rainy and I just treated myself to sushi and I have chocolate cake and a candle lit and I started my second book today cause I'm indecisive, so maybe I should focus on reading, right?
