Ruth Jefferson is nurse at a hospital in Connecticut. She is considerably well-trained, with more than two decades of experience in labor and delivery. During one of her shifts, she performs a check-up on one newborn, only to be told moments later that she had been relieved of her duty and reassigned to a new patient. As it turns out, the newborn's parents are white supremacists, and they explicitly requested that Ruth, a black woman, not touch their baby. The hospital grants the request, but the following day, when Ruth is left alone in the nursery, the baby goes into cardiac arrest. Does Ruth obey the parents' wishes or does she try to save the child?
Small Great Things proves to be an outstanding achievement in tackling issues about race, prejudice, privilege, and justice. Raw, witty, and brutally honest—Jodi Picoult refuses to shy away from delicate matters and boldly states what the world needs to hear.
