Now, having left her father behind in Chicago for dreams of art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, she finds herself with a child of her own. But her mother's absence, and shameful memories of her past, makes her doubt both her maternal ability and her sense of self-worth. Out of Paige's struggle to find wholeness by searching for her mother and facing her own insecurities, Jodi Picoult crafts an absorbing novel peopled with richly drawn characters. Any mother or child cannot help but relate to the issues and emotions explored within this powerful and moving book. Jodi Picoult's bestselling and widely acclaimed novels include Second Glance, Perfect Match, Salem Falls, Plain Truth, Keeping Faith, The Pact and Songs of the Humpback Whale. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and three children. Read more about Jodi PicoRead Less

THIS NOVEL WAS SAD AND TOUCHING. IT IS ABOUT A YOUNG WOMEN WHO GETS MARRIED AND DOESNT FIND HERSELF REALLY UNTIL AFTER SHE HAS A CHILD OF HER OWN, WHEN SHE FINALLY UNDERSTANDS WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN HAVE SOME TISSUES HANDY.

honest to the core
This is an excellent depiction into the lives of young married mothers. This book can't be put down. The ending left me hanging, but over all it tells a tale of finding yourself after marraige and child birth.
