Harvesting the Heart

by Picoult, Jodi

Condition: See description


New York: Viking, 1993. Faintly foxed top edges, still a sharp, fine copy in very near fine dust jacket, . First Edition. Hard Cover.

Jodi Picoult’s Captivating Second Novel   From the New York Times bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper , Lone Wolf , and the forthcoming The Storyteller , Harvesting the Heart is written with astonishing clarity and evocative detail, convincing in its depiction of emotional pain, love, and vulnerability, and recalls the writing of Alice Hoffman and Kristin Hannah. Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who left when she was five. Now, having left her father behind in Chicago for dreams of art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, she finds herself with a child of her own. But her mother's absence, and shameful memories of her past, make her doubt both her maternal ability and her sense of self worth. Out of Paige's struggle to find wholeness, Jodi Picoult crafts an absorbing novel peopled by richly drawn characters and explores issues and emotions readers can relate to. “A brilliant, moving examination of motherhood, brimming with detail and emotion.” — Richmond Times-Dispatch “Jodi Picoult explores the fragile ground of ambivalent motherhood in her lush second novel. This story belongs to… the lucky reader.” — The New York Times Book Review
