Harvesting the Heart

Harvesting the Heart

THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR

‘Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution’ Sunday Express

Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who abandoned her when she was five. Now, having left home for art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, she finds herself with a child of her own.

But Paige cannot forget her mother’s absence or the shameful memories from her own past, and running away is in her blood. Emotionally exhausted, overwhelmed by the demands of her family, she knows that this time, if she runs, she must leave behind her newborn child – but could it be possible Paige’s baby would be better off without her?

Exploring motherhood, absence and the legacy it leaves, this is an unputdownable story from bestselling Jodi Picoult.
