Delia Hopkins, a search-and-rescue worker, lives in New Hampshire with her father, Andrew, and daughter, Sophie. Delia plans to marry Sophie's father.
As Andrew faces his demons and Delia tries to forgive him for his past sins, she also questions her engagement, especially when her fiancé's alcoholism seems to overtake him. Standing in the shadows is Fitz, the man who has loved Delia since childhood.
Picoult brilliantly juxtaposes Delia's childhood with her present life. Sensitive and gripping, this novel is a masterpiece. (Mar., 448 pp., $25.00)
