The new audiobook from number one best-selling author Jodi Picoult, with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility. When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.

Narration was excellent . Character's were brought to life. You see racism from a different view entirely. It's a book that will remain with you long after you have read it. With a few twists and turns that are not expected. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish

The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is the classic working-class novel. It was written in 1906 by an impoverished house painter, Robert Tressell, and within its framework contains a manifesto for socialism. It tells of the appalling working conditions of a group of painters and decorators and their struggle to survive at the most basic level. It is moving, grimly humorous and tragic. It has sold over six million copies worldwide since it was published, and it has the power to change lives.

I loved the way the author created the characters along with the political statements . It's a must read for anyone interested in the history of workers and social issues of the early 1900's Highly recommended

If you're a fan of Jodie Picoult, you'll love  Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain, best-selling author of  The Midwife's Confession.... North Carolina, 1960. Newlywed Jane Forrester, fresh out of university, is seeking what most other women have shunned: a career. But life as a social worker is far from what she expected. Out amongst the rural tobacco fields of Grace County, Jane encounters a world of extreme poverty that is far removed from the middle-class life she has grown up with.

I really enjoyed this story . Heartbreaking at times but the characters so came to life with the enjoyable narration . It's hard to believe that this is based on true life .
