The acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a spellbinding tale of a mother's tragic loss and one man's last chance at gaining salvation.

Can we save ourselves, or do we rely on others to do it? Is what we believe always the truth?

One moment June Nealon was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to happen.

For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens that changes everything for him. Now, he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June's eleven-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes, and the rage of a mother who has lost her child.

Would you give up your vengeance against someone you hate if it meant saving someone you love? Would you want your dreams to come true if it meant granting your enemy's dying wish?

Once again, Jodi Picoult mesmerizes and enthralls readers with this story of redemption, justice, and love.

Book review by Annie B., posted by CA Library:"Spoiler Alert! Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult was a plot twisting novel. The story starts off with a young woman, June, reminiscing about her past. Her daughter being raped and killed. Her soon to be husband and longtime police officer shot. The man responsible for their deaths, was once trusted with the victims house key. His name is Shay Bourne, and was working as their handyman during the final days leading up to the murder. As his trail awaits, his jury is selected. On it is a young priest, by the name of Michael; who has will soon take place as the leader in deciding the defense’s verdict.Shay Bourne is sentenced to the death penalty. He awaits the execution on the I-Tier of the local state prison. Ever since Shay has been placed, super natural occurrences have taken place on this tier. An inmate with AIDs is cured, the tap water in the inmate’s water systems is replaced with wine, birds and even an inmate is brought back to life.Eleven years into the madness, as Shay still awaits his execution, he learns that the sister of his young victim is in need of a heart transplant. As Bourne is now just months away from his lethal injection, he decides to volunteer as a donor. The only problem is the manor of the execution. He is planned to receive a lethal injection designed to directly stop his heart.Over all, this book was okay. It would be good for someone interested in court or in prison life. The book was fairly slow moving for a typical Jodi Picoult book. Some court referencing can be confusing at some points. If I had to rate this book out of five stars, I would give it a three. It is nothing compared to other books by this author. If you are looking for a good Jodi Picoult book, I would recommend Nineteen Minutes. Nineteen Minutes is about a school shooting much like Columbine. It shows everyone’s side of the story, including friends, parents of the defendant, and even the defendant himself."
