In August of 2017, Dave, my dad and I went on an Alaskan Cruise with Princess Cruise Lines. As I was looking through the brochure of activities onboard, they said that they were going to have.a book club discussion of this book on the last day at sea. I jumped at the chance and went to pick up a copy. I read a lot on that cruise. One morning we even got locked in our room. It took the crew an hour and a half to disassemble the entire handle and replace the lock. Instead of being upset, I was thrilled, because that was more time to read the book.
I hadn't quite finished the book when I headed up to meet with fellow passengers to discuss at the designated time and place on the last day at sea. Apparently having a book discussion wasn't as popular of an idea as the cruise line had imagined. Nobody else showed up so I returned the book and went on my way. Thanks to the digital age, I took a picture of what page I was on and had always intended to borrow a copy from the library and finish. Well this year, nearly a year and a half later I was able to finish the book. Picoult is a great writer. Her books are easy to read. In this one she takes on the issue of race and our justice system. The story is of a nurse who is accused of killing a baby at the hospital. Picoult tells the story through the viewpoints of the many characters. This would be a great book for a book club to discuss.
