[Book Review] CHANGE OF HEART by Jodi Picoult
Kay reviews CHANGE OF HEART by Jodi Picoult (Atria, 2008)
This is a disturbing story on many levels and yet so very uplifting! Shay Bourne, a convicted killer on death row, learns that the sister of his victim needs a heart transplant - and he sees this as his salvation. Unexpected allies – a priest and an attorney – determine that Shay should die on his own terms. The death penalty, the meaning of salvation, and the fate of the soul- all are probed in this moving story.
