Small Great Things
Book #80 Read in 2016
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
This book has made it to the top three Picoult reads for me. Ruth is an African-American Labor and Delivery nurse. Turk and Britt are parents of newborn Davis and are also white supremacists who do not want a black person handling their baby and they make such a request of Ruth's supervisor who pulls Ruth from the care of baby Davis. Davis has medical complications and goes into cardiac arrest and Ruth is the only one there. What does she do? Others come to the aid of Davis but the baby dies. Ruth is then charged with murder. This book takes us through her trial and is told in alternating viewpoints of Ruth, Turk and Ruth's lawyer Kennedy. There are twists and turns at the end that I never saw coming. Make sure to read this one! I received a copy of this book from Amazon Vine and Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
