9780140230277: Harvesting the Heart

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Small Great Things and My Sister's Keeper, a novel exploring the story of a young woman overcome by the demands of having a family.

Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who abandoned her at five years old. 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 force her to doubt whether she could ever be capable of bringing joy and meaning into the life of her child, gifts her own mother never gave.

Harvesting the Heart is written with astonishing clarity and evocative detail, convincing in its depiction of emotional pain, love, and vulnerability, and recalls the writing of Alice Hoffman and Kristin Hannah. Out of Paige's struggle to find wholeness, Jodi Picoult crafts an absorbing novel peopled by richly drawn characters, and explores motherhood with a power and depth only she is capable of.

“A brilliant, moving examination of motherhood, brimming with detail and emotion.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Jodi Picoult explores the fragile ground of ambivalent motherhood in her lush second novel. This story belongs to... the lucky reader.” —The New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Jodi Picoult is the author of twenty-two novels, including the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Storyteller, Lone Wolf, Between the Lines, Sing You Home, House Rules, Handle with Care, Change of Heart, Nineteen Minutes, and My Sister’s Keeper, and the highly anticipated Small Great Things. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and three children.

From AudioFile:

Bestselling author Jodi Picoult is known for picking up on hot-button issues that reverberate through the zeitgeist. This time it's the "mommy blues," and while it's easy to understand Page Prescott's need to get away from her mothering duties to find her own mother, who abandoned her as a child, it's a challenge to care much about her. The impossibly attractive heart surgeon, Nicholas, saves Page from herself, and, while he has a hard time forgiving her for leaving him with a three-month-old infant, the listener is still pulling for the couple to work out their problems. Narrator Cassandra Campbell handles the emotional roller coaster of Page's plight with aplomb, squeezing every ounce of sympathy possible from the runaway mom. R.O. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
