Two cousins are driven to extremes by the power of love, as one helps his terminally ill wife commit suicide at her request, and the other becomes involved in a passionate affair with his wife’s new assistant. In the midst of betrayals and trials, forced to confront the limits of their love, these cousins must ask themselves how far the borders of their hearts can extend.

    I've read most of Jodi Picoult's books and this was so so. It just didn't seem to connect or really pick up. I thought the story line was great it just literally dragged and I'm sorry but the ending was like "what really" that's it. I felt like it needed to be tied up better at the end. It was almost like the author was alike I'm done!!

    Of all of her novels, this is my favorite. The mix conflicting emotions that both the characters and the reader experience is phenomenal. I read this book almost every week just to have my heart broken again by the tragic story and the beautiful writing.
