Immediately upon graduating from high school, Paige leaves her father a note and hops on a bus to New York. Working as a waitress in a small cafe, she meets Nicholas, a medical student who feels oddly drawn to her fresh innocence. Almost before he realizes it, Nicholas has asked Paige to marry him, to the utter disappointment of his wealthy parents. Paige continues working to support Nicholas through school, but when she has her first child, she begins to have doubts and is revisited by feelings and memories of her own childhood, in which her mother abandoned her at a young age.

I work in a library and, for several years, seeing the Jodi Picoult books fly off the shelves like hotcakes has made me wonder what all the fuss was about. I still don’t understand. I wasn’t feeling sympathetic toward any of the characters. Perhaps this wasn’t her best work, but I’m not sure how interested I am in trying another.
