Harvesting The Heart: A Novel

by Jodi Picoult

Penguin Books | May 3, 1995 | Trade Paperback

Harvesting The Heart: A Novel is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.

From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Leaving Time 

Paige has only a few vivid memories of her mother, who abandoned her at five years old. Now, having left her father behind in Chicago for dreams of art school and marriage to an ambitious young doctor, she finds herself with a child of her own. But her mother''s absence and shameful memories of her past force her to doubt whether she could ever be capable of bringing joy and meaning into the life of her child, gifts her own mother never gave.

Harvesting the Heart is written with astonishing clarity and evocative detail, convincing in its depiction of emotional pain, love, and vulnerability, and recalls the writing of Alice Hoffman and Kristin Hannah. Out of Paige''s struggle to find wholeness, Jodi Picoult crafts an absorbing novel peopled by richly drawn characters, and explores motherhood with a power and depth only she is capable of.

“A brilliant, moving examination of motherhood, brimming with detail and emotion.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Jodi Picoult explores the fragile ground of ambivalent motherhood in her lush second novel. This story belongs to… the lucky reader.” —The New York Times Book Review

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad Not one of her better works, but not bad either. Ironically, I recommend this book for people about to have a baby. Things go bad between the stay at home mom and working dad in the story (stereotypical i know...) but it kinda gives you a heads up on what to expect in some areas and a chance to avoid the miss communication that occurs between husband and wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mother and Self Jodi Picoult created a novel so rich and so true. She has magically woven a story of sorrow, happiness, and the search for our own truths.

Editorial Reviews

"Picoult writes with a fine touch, a sharp eye for detail, and a firm grasp of the delicacy and complexity of human relationships."
-The Boston Globe

"Picoult has become a master-almost a clairvoyant-at targeting hot issues and writing highly readable page-turners about them . . . It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong."
-The Washington Post
