Anyone who has asked me for a book suggestion has heard me go on and on about Jodi Picoult. Yes, one of her books was made into a movie but that is just the tip of her iceberg of talent!!! I love love love all her books and can reread them without getting bored. This particular book was the first one of hers that I read and I was hooked.
My whole life, I’ve never been on a vacation. I’ve never even left New Hampshire, unless you count the time that we flew to Nebraska – and even you have to admit that sitting in a hospital room for three days watching really old Tom and Jerry cartoons while you get your Pamidronate infusion is nothing like going to a beach or SeaWorld or the Grand Canyon. (jodi picoult, handle with care)
Another heart-wrenching book by Jodi Piccoult. How delighted I was to discover that I had an unread book by one of my favorite authors. This one deals with the Amish community and what happens when their faith is juxtaposed with the American legal system. It makes you think about what forgiveness really means.
