Mailbox Monday … 6th June 2011

 

My single entry for this meme today is:

 

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

This Title Is Available From Amazon

—-

‘Sara Fitzgerald’s daughter Kate is just two years old when she is diagnosed with a rare form of Leukaemia.

Reeling with the helpless shock of it, Sara knows she will do anything – whatever it takes – to save her child ….’

You can, as usual, click on the image, to view a full synopsis from Amazon, but I felt that it would be too much of a spoiler to publish any more of the synopsis on this meme. I think that the description on the actual book gives away a potted history of the story, including all the best bits, which has rather spoilt it for me. I realise that there needs to be enough information to make an informed choice about whether or not a book is the right one for you, but in this case it seems to have been taken a little too far.

This book was given to me by my mother-in-law, who enjoyed it and was moved by the story.

I have  never read anything by Jodi Picoult before, so your comments, if you are familiar with her work, would be much appreciated.

Mailbox Monday is on tour at the moment and for the month of June, is being hosted by, Bluestocking, so why not head over, leave your link and a comment and allow us all to share your latest book finds.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
