“Perennial bestseller” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) Jodi Picoult tells an unforgettable and gripping story about family secrets, love, and letting go in Lone Wolf.

Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time. In many ways, Luke understands wolf dynamics better than those of his own family: his wife, Georgie, has left him, finally giving up on their lonely marriage; his son, Edward, twenty-four, fled six years ago, leaving behind a shattered relationship with his father. Edward understands that some things cannot be fixed, though memories of his domineering father still inflict pain. Then comes a frantic phone call: Luke has been gravely injured in a car accident with Edward’s younger sister, Cara.

Suddenly everything changes: Edward must return home to face the father he walked out on at age eighteen. He and Cara have to decide their father’s fate together. Though there’s no easy answer, questions abound: What secrets have Edward and his sister kept from each other? What hidden motives inform their need to let their father die…or to try to keep him alive? What would Luke himself want? How can any family member make such a decision in the face of guilt, pain, or both? And most importantly, to what extent have they all forgotten what a wolf never forgets: that each member of a pack needs the others, and that sometimes survival means sacrifice?

Another tour de force by Picoult, Lone Wolf is an evocative exploration of the nature of a family: the love, protection, and strength it can offer—and the price we might have to pay for those gifts. What happens when the hope that should sustain a family is the very thing tearing it apart?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I feel decieved My initial thoughts were that this was a fantastically written book, with such an original storyline. That is until I read the book "the man who lives with wolves". Then I though " isn't plagiarism illegal?", and "one day I'm going to take a little known book, tweak a few paragraphs, make it my own, and become a millionaire author". Well done Jodi, who'd of thought it could be that easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lone Wolf This book was so good. As most of Jodi Picoult books are, they make you think and take real life situations based on fictional characters. Just another one to add to the "must read" list.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kept me interested I found the Luke chapters really repeated themselves far too much, we know that a wolf will do anything for the family, blah blah. It was still a good read and as always, Jodi does a good job of telling the story from different angles. I hesitated between 3-4 stars only because she has better books, but if it weren't a Jodi Picoult it may warranted a 4...I hold her to high standards she has created:) I pretty much know I will like anything of hers:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! An amazing look at the intricacies of human vs wolf family dynamics. An indepth conversation about the horrors a divided family faces with a question of mercy vs keeping a loved one alive for your own reasons. Well written, fast flowing, I couldn't put it down.
