The acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a spellbinding tale of a mother's tragic loss and one man's last chance at gaining salvation.

Can we save ourselves, or do we rely on others to do it? Is what we believe always the truth?

One moment June Nealon was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to happen.

For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens that changes everything for him. Now, he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June's eleven-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes, and the rage of a mother who has lost her child.

Would you give up your vengeance against someone you hate if it meant saving someone you love? Would you want your dreams to come true if it meant granting your enemy's dying wish?

Once again, Jodi Picoult mesmerizes and enthralls readers with this story of redemption, justice, and love.

這譯者嚴重拖累了我原本就很緩慢的閱讀進度,讀來數度令人覺得不耐。Jodi Picoult 精彩的故事、迂迴反覆的思想討論,無可避免的被並不旗鼓相當的翻譯折損了此書原本的價值。
p.104 我並不認同這個建立於你不能做什麼,而不是你該做什麼才得以完全的宗教。

p.105 我在工作上,看到世界有太多的不公平,所以無法認同有一位仁慈全能的神,讓這些殘忍的事繼續存在;我徹底痛恨這種大眾說法,容易犯錯的人性之下,其實安排著更偉大的神聖計畫。

p.105 我並不認為宗教建立於謊言,但也不認為它們建立於真相。我認為宗教之所以出現,是因為當時的人們需要它。......定義上來說,相信的人,需要有某件事去相信。

Bel libro. Interessante la questione posta e le varie considerazioni sulla religione.

Sometimes we see what we want to, instead of what's in front of us. And sometimes, we don't see clearly at all.
But Elizabeth Nealon will never learn how to do long division, or how to ride a horse,

Jodie Picoult really captures what it would be like to have to make such a hard decision and what one does in order to protect the ones they love. This book had some brilliant twists which I really was not expecting.

I enjoyed every second of this book. I couldn't put it down. Very enjoyable. I would most definitely recommend this to a friend. Jodi Picoult tackles subjects you don't normally read about, this is no exception. I loved it.
