This Week's Recommended Read
I'm having a hard time deciding what to say about Handle with Care.
It was engrossing, and I walked around in a fog in the gaps of time between reading.
In reliable Picoult fashion, the characters were dynamic and tangible as my own neighbors.
There are the predictable Picoult fiction ingredients: medical and judicial aspects, fierce parental bonds, and twisty plotlines.
In short, depend on this author for a gripping, life-like reading experience and thought-provoking gem. There are only two of her 16 novels that I would hesitate to recommend. (I cannot fathom how she manages to gestate each book in just nine months.)
