Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rich and charming…Jodi Picoult casts with her beautiful imagery and language. Readers this book is a delight.”  Ann Hood, author of Do Not Go Gentle
“As Picoult uses five voices to tell a complex tale of love, friendship and a Faulknerian family history, her mastery of language strongly individuates her characters… This powerful and affecting novel demonstrates that there are as many truths to a story as there are people to tell it.”  Publishers Weekly
“The skillful performances by the cast are most effective in allowing the listener to follow the action smoothly and maintain a connection with the characters. This first novel is enjoyable in its own right and should be particularly satisfying for Picoult fans.”  AudioFile
“This uniquely constructed first novel, the literary equivalent of counterpoint in music, is told in five voices…Charming and poignant, Picoult’s novel is even better after a second reading.”  Library Journal
