Jodi Picoult wrote this book two years ago, and I just got into it. I don't know about you, but I love when I miss the hype over a book and get to settle into it on my own. As you will listen to my audio, you will discover I actually listened to the audiobook of this, as well, and it was beautifully done. The story is told from three different perspectives of everyone involved. It follows a black nurse named Ruth Jefferson who was left to watch over a white baby, who one of the other characters – the baby's father, Turk – told the hospital he didn't want a black nurse touching his baby. Racism ensues, and we are left to see what happens in the aftermath. BE WARNED: There are spoilers ahead!! Leave some comments below of what you thought about the book!
