My #5 Wishlist Wednesday book
is

Lone Wolf 

by 

Jodi Picoult




Lone Wolf


Expected publication: February 28th 2012 by Hodder & Stoughton


Synopsis from Goodreads







A life hanging in the balance…a family torn apart. The #1 internationally bestselling author Jodi Picoult tells an unforgettable story about family, love, and letting go.
Edward Warren, twenty-four, has been living in Thailand for five years, a prodigal son who left his family after an irreparable fight with his father, Luke. But he gets a frantic phone call: His dad lies comatose, gravely injured in the same accident that has also injured his younger sister Cara.
With her father’s chances for recovery dwindling, Cara wants to wait for a miracle. But Edward wants to terminate life support and donate his father’s organs. Is he motivated by altruism, or revenge? And to what lengths will his sister go to stop him from making an irrevocable decision?
Lone Wolf explores the notion of family, and the love, protection and strength it’s meant to offer. But what if the hope that should sustain it, is the very thing that pulls it apart? Another tour de force from Jodi Picoult, Lone Wolf examines the wild and lonely terrain upon which love battles reason.



This one has been on my wishlist for a while - I'm a huge fan of Jodi Picoult and eagerly await each book as it is published. She has great skill with words, and is able to engage the reader from the very first page.

Whenever I finish one of her books I feel that I am leaving behind a set of friends and I consider her to be one of my favourite contemporary authors.
