Author Jodi Picoult has been tugging on our heartstrings since her very first works – and if you’ve never known the power of her novels, there’s no better time to start. Get to know Paige, a new mother troubled by her own mother’s absence from her life since she was five. When an accident causes her to flee from her family, she returns to Chicago to finally track down her mother and the answers she has always needed. Then journey along with Mariah White: a woman with a cheating husband, and a daughter who now has an imaginary friend. Is Faith truly seeing God, and are the miracles she performs real, or is she simply a troubled girl seeking refuge from her parents’ divorce?
