    'If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.' Martin Luther King Jr..'I don't want that nurse touching my baby.' Those are the instructions from the newborn child's parents. However, when the baby goes into cardiac arrest, Ruth, a nurse of twenty years' experience, sees no option but to assist. But the baby dies. And Ruth is charged with negligent homicide...Ruth is shattered and bewildered as she tries to come to terms with her situation. She finds different kinds of support from her sister, a fiery radical, and her teenage son, but it is to Kennedy McQuarrie, a white middle-class lawyer, to whom she entrusts her case, and her future...As the two come to develop a truer understanding of each other's lives, they begin to doubt the beliefs they each hold most dear. For the privileged to prosper, they come to realise, others have to suffer. Racism takes many forms and is reinforced by the structures of our society...In gripping dramas like Nineteen Minutes, My Sister's Keeper and The Pact, Jodi Picoult has explored the big issues of our time through characters whose lives resonate with us.
    Here we see once again her unrivalled ability to immerse us in a story whose issues will linger with us long after the final page has been turned...

    Return Policy

    Incorrect, damaged or faulty items may be returned within 14 days of purchase for a replacement or full refund (including postage costs).

    Some of our discounted stock is "remaindered" or "marked" by the publishers. The publishers do this by placing a black stripe on the base of the book. We have attempted to display this to online customers by listing "REMAINDER" in the description of the book. We cannot accept returns because a book is marked by the publisher. If for some reason a book isn't listed as REMAINDER, we will advise the customer before processing the order.

    Should you change your mind once you have received your order, we may at our discretion offer a credit note or exchange.  Please contact us for approval.  All change of mind returns must be returned in a mint, unread condition together with proof of purchase within 14 days of purchase.
