THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
'Picoult is a master manipulator, weaving gripping, dramatic plotlines. We defy you not to be gripped.' Glamour
A woman is found in a graveyard in Los Angeles, unable to remember anything about herself or her life. No one is more surprised than she when her husband comes to the police station to take her home - and turns out to be Hollywood's leading film star.
Bewildered by the perfect life that has been suddenly thrust upon her, Cassie finds herself living a dream. But there is something dark and disturbing behind this glamorous façade - and it is only as her memory gradually returns that it will all come crumbling down . . .
Jodi's brand new novel, A SPARK OF LIGHT is publishing soon and is now available to pre-order!
This politically correct Hollywood romance leaves no plotting stone unturned. For her discovery of an ancient human relic, glamorous UCLA anthropologist Cassie Barrett is rocketed to the prominence of a '90s-style Margaret Mead. As if that's not enough, she goes to Kenya as technical consultant on a movie starring hunk-of-the-month Alex Rivers. After a whirlwind romance, Cassie becomes the new Mrs. Rivers, toast of filmdom's beautiful people. But all is not bliss for the newlyweds: Alex's tortured past just won't let go, and Cassie must bear the brunt of his emotional scars. Perhaps attempting to salvage the predictable plot, Picoult administers to Cassie's bland character a dose of adrenalin-pumping amnesia. She also throws in a dollop of Native American culture and a noble savage who skirts the periphery of Cassie's tumultuous existence, always ready with sage advice, spiritual healing techniques and warm embraces. Some rather prettily told Indian legends are added to the mix, but the total effect is wide of the mark. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club selection; film rights to Dove Audio; audio rights to Brilliance.

My first iBook! A little slow at first, but then I couldn't put it down. And quite an emotional journey. I liked that I wasn't sure which way the story would end, though not sure about the ending itself. A very good read.
Best book very touching and eye opening, would not put it down.
A great read
I so badly wanted to know how the story panned out I stayed up all night to finish it. Enjoyed it and immediately passed it on to a friend to read. Only slight gripe is that it was actually written in 1993 (after Sleeping With The Enemy?!) so some aspects seem a little dated, only a minor point though and did not ruin my enjoyment of the story.
