Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who abandoned her when she was five. Now, having left home and her father for dreams of art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, Paige finds herself with a child of her own. Emotionally and physically exhausted, overwhelmed by the demands of her family, Paige cannot forget her mother's absence or the shameful memories from her own past. Her next step would have been unthinkable before her doubts about her maternal ability crept into her mind. Is it possible Paige’s baby would be better off without her?

Jodi Picoult grew up in Nesconset, New York. She received her A.B. in Creative Writing from Princeton University, and her M.Ed. from Harvard University.From AudioFile:
Bestselling author Jodi Picoult is known for picking up on hot-button issues that reverberate through the zeitgeist. This time it's the "mommy blues," and while it's easy to understand Page Prescott's need to get away from her mothering duties to find her own mother, who abandoned her as a child, it's a challenge to care much about her. The impossibly attractive heart surgeon, Nicholas, saves Page from herself, and, while he has a hard time forgiving her for leaving him with a three-month-old infant, the listener is still pulling for the couple to work out their problems. Narrator Cassandra Campbell handles the emotional roller coaster of Page's plight with aplomb, squeezing every ounce of sympathy possible from the runaway mom. R.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
