Sometimes finding your own voice
is a matter of listening to the heart...


Jodi Picoult's powerful novel portrays an emotionally charged marriage that changes course in one explosive moment...For years, Jane Jones has lived in the shadow of her husband, renowned San Diego oceanographer Oliver Jones. But during an escalating argument, Jane turns on him with an alarming volatility. In anger and fear, Jane leaves with their teenage daughter, Rebecca, for a cross-country odyssey charted by letters from her brother Joley, guiding them to his Massachusetts apple farm, where surprising self-discoveries await. Now Oliver, an expert at tracking humpback whales across vast oceans, will search for his wife across a continent—and find a new way to see the world, his family, and himself: through her eyes.

Loved it!

Love all the characters and the story. I’ve experienced a similar situation and it is like having your heart ripped from your chest! Love can happen that quickly! Beautiful story.

Sad

This book was very sad…..and I didn’t want it to end the way it did…..it made me feel like people can’t recognize they made a mistake and move on….instead they go backwards. I had to finish it because I wanted to know how it turned out.

Tried to read this 2 different times, can't get through it. Hard for me to follow the story line and become involved with the characters. Don't bother.
