    Picoult brings to life a female prosecutor whose cherished family is shattered when she learns that her five-year-old son has been sexually abused.

    What does it mean to be a good mother?
    How far would you go in the name of love -- and justice?


    In the course of her everyday work, career-driven assistant district attorney Nina Frost prosecutes child molesters and works determinedly to ensure that a legal system with too many loopholes keeps these criminals behind bars. But when her own five-year-old son, Nathaniel, is traumatized by a sexual assault, Nina and her husband, Caleb, a quiet and methodical stone mason, are shattered, ripped apart by an enraging sense of helplessness in the face of a futile justice system that Nina knows all too well. In a heartbeat, Nina's absolute truths and convictions are turned upside down, and she hurtles toward a plan to exact her own justice for her son -- no matter the consequence, whatever the sacrifice.

    • Excellent read

      JOdi Picoult's craft at developing characters is at her best in this novel about child molestation. There is a twist at the end of the story that I was not expecting. THis novel is a good one for a reader's group!

      This one was hard to put down. It deals with disturbing subject matter and makes you wonder what you would do in the same situation (but at the same time praying something like this never happens to your family). Jodi Picoult's characters are so "real".
