      • content: Music is an apt accompaniment to a story about a music therapist who finds herself falling in love with a woman after her husband leaves her. The songs, written by Picoult and Ellen Wilber, who performs them, are placed at relevant points in the heartbreaking story. Therese Plummer performs the women's roles with pure expressions of joy, anger, and grief. Picoult also has a talent for male internal dialogue, which is performed superbly by Brian Hutchinson as husband Max. Max's point of view smoothly shifts the story's perspective with ironic guy talk that hints at both his manly feelings and profound vulnerabilities. Picoult conveys her characters' transformations with her signature grace and empathy while shining a harsh spotlight on intolerance. A bittersweet and riveting listening experience. A.W.

        December 6, 2010
        Picoult's overstuffed latest (after House Rules) is stretched just to the breaking point. Max and Zoe's marriage, stressed by infertility problems and miscarriages, is finally destroyed by a stillborn baby. After their divorce, Max moves in with his brother and sister-in-law, Reid and Liddy, and backslides into self-destructive drinking, while Zoe devotes herself to music therapy (the book is accompanied by a CD in Zoe's voice, with awkward lyrics by Picoult) and develops a friendship with guidance counselor Vanessa that eventually turns into love and marriage. Max, meanwhile, converts to an evangelical brand of Christianity that pits him against Zoe when she asks Max for permission to use their frozen embryos. Max's discomfort with Zoe's same-sex relationship and his desire to repay Reid and Liddy, who have their own fertility problems, mean a legal battle looms. Picoult abandons her usual efforts to present an equal view of both sides of an issue—Max is a pitiful right-wing puppet; Zoe, Vanessa, and their attorney are saintly—but her devoted fans will nevertheless find everything they expect: big emotion, diligent research, legal conflict, and a few twists at the end.
