Lone Wolf: A Novel

Lone Wolf - Jodi Picoult This writer really impresses me. She chooses topical, timely and controversial subjects, looks at them from all sides, then reaches a conclusion that is satisfying and complete.
I learned more about wolves than I thought I wanted to, yet she put it in the story within a story of a man who goes to live among them, a technique that kept me spellbound and rooting for the wolves and the man, everyone.
She has written this one from 6 or 7 points of view, although the two young adult children of a man in a coma are the main characters, along with their comatose father, the wolf researcher. Everyone has regrets in this story, and yet she managed to convince this reader it was okay. We're all human, and when we have to, we do go on.
