Summary
Picoult's 24th novel is told from nurse Ruth Jefferson's point of view, attorney Kennedy McQuarrie's point of view, and father Turk Bauer's point of view. Turk and Brittany Bauer are both white supremacists and do not want anyone black caring for their baby. African American nurse Ruth is left alone with their baby when he goes into cardiac arrest and dies. Ruth is blamed for the baby's death and is put on trial for murder.
Critique
In my opinion, the ending wraps up too quickly and too tidy.
