Publisher Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult comes a compelling and disturbing novel about a prep school teacher accused of rape by a group of young girls, the woman who stands by him, and the repercussions of the case in a small, New England town where the past is only a heartbeat away.

Love can redeem a man...but secrets and lies can condemn him.

A handsome stranger comes to the sleepy New England town of Salem Falls in hopes of burying his past: Once a teacher at a girls' prep school, Jack St. Bride was destroyed when a student's crush sparked a powder keg of accusation. Now, washing dishes for Addie Peabody at the Do-Or-Diner, he slips quietly into his new routine, and Addie finds this unassuming man fitting easily inside her heart. But amid the rustic calm of Salem Falls, a quartet of teenage girls harbor dark secrets -- and they maliciously target Jack with a shattering allegation. Now, at the center of a modern-day witch hunt, Jack is forced once again to proclaim his innocence: to a town searching for answers, to a justice system where truth becomes a slippery concept written in shades of gray, and to the woman who has come to love him.

Different than what I have read of her other works...but still great!

I have been a fan of her books for the last 10+ years. While this book was good, I found it didn't follow the traditional pace of her books. Typically there is a HUGE unexpected twist within the last couple of pages, and while this had "twists" at the end of the story they were no where near the level that I have read previously, it was actually kind of an expected ending, including the last sentence (if you pay attention to the hints/clues throughout the novel)

A wonderful book I didn't want to end!

I didn't want Salem Falls to end. It had suspense, drama, twists and turns, love...all the great emotions that one would expect out of a Jodi Pocoult novel. I loved it!
