The acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things, “who delivers book after book, a winning combination of the literary and the commercial” (Entertainment Weekly), Jodi Picoult presents a spellbinding tale of a mother’s tragic loss and a criminal’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 day June Nealon was happily anticipating a lifetime 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.
For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. In a heartbeat, something happened that changed everything for him. Now, he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June’s twelve-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes, and the rage of a mother who lost her child.
This “bold story of loss, justice, redemption, and faith reminds us how tragically truth can be concealed and denied” (Booklist) and reminds us why Jodi Picoult is one of the most acclaimed and beloved authors of our time.
