Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult
Club Rating: 3.5
Cara and Edward's parents, Luke and Georgie, are divorced. Luke, a renowned wolf expert, frequently lives with wolves. Cara adores her father and doesn't feel she fits with her mother, Georgie's new family. Edward has had a falling out with his father and lives in Thailand. An car accident brings this estranged family back together.
Picoult writes with a formula that works in this book. She introduces a conflict early on - Luke is in a coma and should they or shouldn't they unplug his life support. Some of us felt compassion for
the wife and some for Luke. Luke was singularly focused and humans were a distraction, We had a very interesting discussion about following your calling/passion vs. responsibilities.
