On an icy winter night, a terrible accident forces a family divided to come together and make a fateful decision. Cara, once protected by her father, Luke, is tormented by a secret that nobody knows. Her brother, Edward, has secrets of his own. He has kept them hidden, but now they may come to light, and if they do, Cara will be devastated. Their mother, Georgie, was never able to compete with her ex-husband’s obsessions, and now, his fate hangs in the balance and in the hands of her children. With conflicting motivations and emotions, what will this family decide? And will they be able to live with that decision, after the truth has been revealed? What happens when the hope that should sustain a family is the very thing tearing it apart?
This was up there with been one of my favourite books of the month. I love Jodi Picoult although some of her novels are not me, when i first realised this book contained almost another story based on wolfs i was secptic, turns out - no reason to be. The novel tells the story of Cara, Luke, Edward & Georgia, flitting between each of their views and the hardships they face based around the decision they face. The characters are very well written and i found myself caring about them, alongside that - the other story based on Lukes life living with wolves was fantastic and apprently something i am interested in.
