Every time I pick up a book by Jodi Picoult I am amazed all over again. She writes like I imagine I can, with a deft twist of plot and an even defter (more deft) turn of the phrase. As I read her books I find myself wishing I had someone I could stop and share a sentence or paragraph with. Her writing makes you want to call up your best friend and say, Listen to this, isnt this the most fabulous thing youve heard?

Delia Hopkins dreams of a lemon tree and from there starts a story that spins her world out of control. Soon she finds herself in Arizona with a young daughter, an alcoholic fiance, and the man whose presence has completed the triumvirate of friendship since childhood. With her world tipped upside down and sideways Delia has to work her way through to the other side; while she learns that it isnt the memories of our lives that are the most important thing.

This is the first Jodi Picoult book I read and half way through I ordered all the others available on PBS. This is an amazing author and I wish more people wrote like her. Each chapter is through the eyes of one of the main characters and it makes the book so much richer and we understand so much more because we see the same story through different eyes and this gives us the story as a whole instead of from only one perspective. You will think you know exactly what is going on in this book and then it twists just a little and changes everything.

I almost put this book down when I found out what the father did, because I was scared it would have a horrible ending. I'm so glad I kept reading. Great book. I couldn't put it down, and there were many twists and turns along the way. This is my first book by her, and I'm now sure it won't be my last.

Told from the POV of all the main characters, this classic Jodi Piccoult book makes you ask yourself what you'd be willing to do to protect your child. A tear-jerker & a page turner to the end.

This is another wonderful book by Picoult: lyrical, touching, frightening, sensible and sensitive, thought-provoking. Full of well-drawn, real characters and specific details of place that take you on that journey, too. A joy.
