The eagerly-awaited new title from Jodi Picoult tackles the controversial issue of abortion. Fans of Picoult will know her trademark ability to use emotive everyday issues in her story, exploring all angles through a cast of brilliantly drawn characters.

It is a testament to Picoult that once again her riveting story engages the reader completely by presenting many aspects surrounding abortion – such the rights of a pregnant woman balanced against that of her unborn child.
