“Die leser word geprikkel en met vele vrae gelaat . . . Hoe goed ken ’n mens werklik jou gesinslede of enigiemand anders? Hoe vernietigend is groepsdruk, hoe intimiderend die behoefte aan tuishoort? Uiters aktueel, nie net in Amerika nie.” – Deborah Steinmair, joernalis en skrywer

Nadat hy jare lank wreed verbaal en fisiek deur klasmaats geboelie is, knak die 17-jarige Peter Houghton een oggend. Binne slegs nentien minute sterf tien inwoners van die dorp Sterling in Amerika.

Die geskokte gemeenskap is vasberade dat geregtigheid moet geskiet. Soos die hofsaak ontvou en Peter getuienis lewer, kom dit egter aan die lig dat die inwoners van Sterling ’n rol daarin gespeel het om ’n innemende, liefdevolle seun in ’n moordenaar te laat verander.

In ’n era waarin boeliegedrag toenemend ’n probleem is, hou hierdie meesleurende boek talle insigte in vir ouers, onderwysers en tieners.

Die ontdekking van ’n dooie baba in ’n skuur op ’n Amiese plaas in Amerika dreig om ’n jong vrou se lewe te verwoes.

Omstandigheidsgetuienis dui daarop dat die 18-jarige Katie Fisher, ’n ongetroude Amiese meisie wat glo die pasgeborene se ma is, vir die moord verantwoordelik is. Katie hou vol: sy het nie die baba vermoor nie. Terselfdertyd vlug Ellie Hathaway, ’n ontnugterde advokaat, na familie wat in dieselfde streek woon om haar kop skoon te maak. Haar tannie is verwant aan Katie en kort voor lank stem Ellie teensinnig in om Katie te verdedig.

Ellie word as Katie se toesighouer aangestel terwyl sy op borgtog is en moet boonop by die Fishers intrek. Om Katie te verdedig, moet Ellie haar nie net diep ingrawe in ’n wreld wat radikaal van haar eie verskil nie, maar ook ’n manier vind om Katie volgens hr verwysingsraamwerk te verstaan. Wanneer ’n man uit haar verlede weer sy verskyning maak, word Ellie terselfdertyd gedwing om haar eie vrese en begeertes te konfronteer.

Uit die pen van die gewilde skrywer van My Sister’s Keeper verskyn di boeiende verhaal van twee vroue . . . en een geheim.

The masterful new novel from the Number One bestselling author of Small Great Things.

The Center for women's reproductive health offers a last chance at hope - but nobody ends up there by choice. Its very existence is controversial, and to the demonstrators who barricade the building every day, the service it offers is no different from legalised murder.

Now life and death decisions are being made horrifyingly real: a lone protester with a gun has taken the staff, patients and visitors hostage.

Starting at the tensest moment in the negotiations for their release, A Spark Of Light unravels backwards, revealing hour by urgent hour what brought each of these people - the gunman, the negotiator, the doctors, nurses and women who have come to them for treatment - to this point. And certainties unwind as truths and secrets are peeled away, revealing the complexity of balancing the right to life with the right to choose.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and A Spark of Light comes a riveting novel about the choices that alter the course of our lives.

Everything changes in a single moment for Dawn Edelstein. She’s on a plane when the flight attendant makes an announcement: Prepare for a crash landing. She braces herself as thoughts flash through her mind. The shocking thing is, the thoughts are not of her husband but of a man she last saw fifteen years ago: Wyatt Armstrong.

Dawn, miraculously, survives the crash, but so do all the doubts that have suddenly been raised. She has led a good life. Back in Boston, there is her husband, Brian, their beloved daughter, and her work as a death doula, in which she helps ease the transition between life and death for her clients. But somewhere in Egypt is Wyatt Armstrong, who works as an archaeologist unearthing ancient burial sites, a career Dawn once studied for but was forced to abandon when life suddenly intervened. And now, when it seems that fate is offering her second chances, she is not as sure of the choice she once made.

After the crash landing, the airline ensures that the survivors are seen by a doctor, then offers transportation to wherever they want to go. The obvious destination is to fly home, but she could take another path: return to the archaeological site she left years before, reconnect with Wyatt and their unresolved history, and maybe even complete her research on The Book of Two Ways—the first known map of the afterlife.

As the story unfolds, Dawn’s two possible futures unspool side by side, as do the secrets and doubts long buried with them. Dawn must confront the questions she’s never truly asked: What does a life well lived look like? When we leave this earth, what do we leave behind? Do we make choices . . . or do our choices make us? And who would you be if you hadn’t turned out to be the person you are right now?

In die splitsekonde wat sy met haar eie dood gekonfronteer word, verander alles in Dawn Edelstein se lewe. Sy is op ’n vliegtuig wat skielik gedwing word om ’n noodlanding te doen.

Terwyl sy haar op die ergste voorberei, is haar gedagtes egter nie by haar eggenoot en dogter nie, maar by Wyatt Armstrong – ’n man wat sy 15 jaar gelede in Egipte agtergelaat het. Dawn oorleef die vliegtuigongeluk op wonderbaarlike wyse, maar word daarna deur groot onsekerheid oor haar lewenskeuses gery.

Sy het ’n goeie lewe in Boston saam met haar man en dogter en sy vind vervulling in haar werk as doulah, waar sy sterwende mense help om die oorgang tussen die lewe en die dood te maak. Tog kan sy nie help om te wonder wat geword het van Wyatt en sy werk as argeoloog wat antieke grafkelders opgrawe nie. As jong studente het hulle saam opgrawings gedoen totdat Dawn weens ’n persoonlike krisis terug is na Amerika.

Moet sy terugkeer na haar voorstedelike lewe en haar gesin? Of moet sy na Egipte gaan en die spoke van die verlede finaal in die o kyk en dalk haar navorsing oor die Boek van twee we voltooi?

Soos die verhaal ontvou, moet Dawn antwoorde op talle kritiese vrae vind: Wat behels ’n goeie lewe? Wat los ons agter wanneer ons sterf en hoeveel van ons lewenskeuses is ons eie en hoeveel maak die lewe vir ons?

Jodi Picoult's latest novel, described as 'To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st Century' with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.

Raised the daughter of a black maid in a privileged white household, Ruth Jefferson is no stranger to prejudice - though as a respected senior nurse, she feels a world away from the inequality that defined her mother's life. Kennedy McQuarrie is a lawyer who defends those who would otherwise be helpless, and would not consider herself a racist by any means. When a white supremacist accuses Ruth of a crime that leads to the death of his new-born baby, and costs Ruth her job, Kennedy knows it is the kind of case she became a lawyer to win.

As the trial unfolds and the efforts to establish the truth about what happened in the hospital continue, all three - accused, accuser and defender - will be forced to confront much bigger truths: the truths they tell themselves about the world they live in, the values upon which they've raised their families and the beliefs around which they've lived their lives.

Never afraid to confront the moral dilemma of our times in the most human terms, Small Great Things is Jodi Picoult at her thought-provoking, life-affirming best.

"New York Times" bestselling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate -- a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister -- and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

"My Sister's Keeper" examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you? Once again, in "My Sister's Keeper, " Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.
