Publisher's Summary

June's first husband was killed in a car crash. Against all the odds, her daughter was uninjured and, in another miracle, June found love again with the policeman who rescued them. Six years on, they are a happy family. But now June's second daughter is dying without the new heart she so urgently needs. And her first daughter, along with her husband, is dead, killed by Shay Bourne, an itinerant workman they welcomed into their home. The crime was so heinous that Shay has been given the death penalty.
Shay is going to die, and he is looking for redemption. And he wants to give June's daughter his heart.

Critic Reviews

"[I]t turns into an edge-of -your-seat thriller, with some thought-provoking wrangling over religious belief and the perils of self-righteousness along the way." ( Sunday Express)
"If you're a fan of dark, serious books that explore family relationships and scary moral dilemmas involving religion, crime and politics then you're probably a massive Jodi Picoult fan already, and Change of Heart won't disappoint." ( Heat)

BORING!!

I can't believe a book with such a thought-provoking subject could be so boring! Talk about rambling on and on and on... This book should have been half as short and would have been much better that way.

However, the narrators are good and the idea is brilliant. The religion theme could bother some people.

Change of Heart

While this book was by my favorite author, it was not what I expected. I did not enjoy the spiritual intonation, although the twists and turns, and the thought provoking moments, were provided, as always, by author Jodi Picoult, in her awesome writing style.

Thought-provoking and engrossing

Jodi Picoult certainly tackles difficult and controversial topics as the subjects for her books, but manages not to make them into polemics: instead she sucks you into the lives of her characters who seem to exist and make you want to know what will happen to them. Having different voices for the characters adds to the feeling that one is witnessing a real story.

In Change of Heart she almost confronts too many issues by combining the arguments for and against the death penalty; medico-legal issues over organ-donation; with a big dose of religious speculation about the possibility of a second coming of Christ and questions about the authenticity of the Biblical story. I thought the author incorporated her religious themes more engagingly and entertainingly than Dan Brown in his books who tends to preach. However, I think Jodi Picoult pulled it off to create a memorable and engrossing book that certainly got been thinking about ethical and moral issues.

An amazing story

As usual Picoult does not let her readers down. The well-crafted characters with the multi-narrator narrative is excellent. An emotional read with a mix of love, loss, hope and a good ending.
