Lone Wolf

By: Jodi Picoult

Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves and, in many ways, he understands wolf dynamics better than those of his own family. His wife, Georgie, has left him, finally giving up on their lonely marriage. His twenty-four year old son, Edward, who fled home six years ago, understands that some things cannot be fixed, though memories of his domineering father still inflict pain. Then comes a frantic phone call: Luke has been gravely injured in a car accident with Edward’s younger sister, Cara.  Suddenly everything changes: Edward must return home to face the father he walked out on. He and Cara have to decide their father’s fate. Though there’s no easy answer, questions abound: What secrets have Edward and his sister kept from each other? What hidden motives inform their need to let their father die or to try to keep him alive? What would Luke want? How can any family member make such a decision in the face of guilt, pain, or both? And most importantly, to what extent have they all forgotten what a wolf never forgets: that each member of a pack needs the others, and that sometimes survival means sacrifice?  Another tour de force by international bestseller Jodi Picoult, Lone Wolf brilliantly describes the nature of a family: the love, protection, and strength it can offer—and the price we might have to pay for those gifts.
