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.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The story has four characters who tell the story from their personal point of view, each contributing to the whole story. The subject matter goes into the morality of the death penalty and the views of religions. The author raises so many thought provoking ideas about the true validity of any one particular religious faith and poses so many questions causing the reader to think about religion in a new way. It doesn't preach, she simply puts the questions out there and allows the reader to arrive at a conc!usion...or not. The narrative moves along and has some startling twists. Some readers might accuse the author of a contrived tale, but I enjoyed the questions and the lack of ant definitive answers. I enjoyed the book.

It's a good book, and I don't have trouble reading it, however I'm really not impressed that Picoult copied another author
