New York Times Best Seller
Once in a while, you will come across a story that is so powerful that it has to be told. This is one of those stories, with one difference; it needs to be told twice. Based on a true story, this powerful, gripping story outlines one of the biggest problems that all of us face, and that is the inborn compulsion to be racist.
This is the story of a nurse, a twenty-year veteran of the same hospital who is dedicated to her work and very well respected. When she arrives at the hospital for her shift, she finds a man and his wife who has just given birth to their first son. When the nurse, Ruth, comes into the room to check on the new mother and baby, the parents immediately request her supervisor.
The parents of the child were white supremacists, and they refused to let Ruth, a black woman, touch their child. What happens next is truly devastating, and the lives of both parties would never be the same. This story is told from both points of view, and you will have to read it to understand how twisted life can get on both sides of the street.
Jodi Picoult does an incredible job of telling the stories in a way that allows you to step into each character’s shoes for just a minute and understand a little bit of what they live with every day. In this book, she takes on a very controversial subject that all of us must face sooner or later. This book is a must read. We gave it a very big 10 out of 10 stars.
