The subject of abortion causes great angst for anyone who has ever had to make that decision or worried about the person they love having to make that decision. Jodi Picoult takes on this heated subject and puts real emotion, empathy, and reason into her latest book.
We are privy to a gunman who has entered a woman's clinic where they perform abortions. He is out of control and wants revenge or justice for his daughter. The terrified people inside - patients, doctor, nurses, staff and those innocent bystanders will all bear the effect of this man's fury. One man, a police negotiator, stands to lose the most as his teenage daughter and sister are in the clinic.
However you feel about this issue you will come away from this book feeling like you can understand each side a little more clearly.
You have felt the terror, love, and understanding in a story that only Jodi Picoult knows how to write. Maybe this spark of light will be enough to break the darkness of this heated debate.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
