The small town of Paradise, Pennsylvania, is a jewel in Lancaster County known for its picture postcard landscapes and bucolic lifestyle.

A police investigation quickly leads to two startling disclosures: the newborn’s mother is an unmarried Amish woman, eighteen year old Katie Fisher. And the infant did not die of natural causes.

But taking on this case challenges Ellie in more ways than one. She finds herself not only in a clash of wills with a client who does not want to be defended but also in a clash of cultures with a people whose channels of justice are markedly different from her own. Immersing herself in Katie Fisher’s life and in a world founded on faith, humility, duty, and honesty Ellie begins to understand the pressures and sacrifices of those who to live ‘plain.’ As she peels away the layers of fact and fantasy, Ellie calls on an old friend for guidance.

She’s also the light of her father’s life a straight A student; a freshman in high school who is pretty and popular; a girl who’s always looked up to Daniel Stone as a hero. Until, that is, her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence…
and suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family and herself seems to be a lie.
For fifteen years, Daniel Stone has been an even tempered, mild mannered man: a stay at home dad to Trixie and a husband who has put his own career as a comic book artist behind that of his wife, Laura, who teaches Dante’s Inferno at a local college. But years ago, he was completely different: growing up as the only white boy in an Eskimo village, he was teased mercilessly for the color of his skin. He learned to fight back: stealing, drinking, robbing, and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself, channeling his rage onto the page and burying his past completely…
until now. Could the young boy who once made Trixie’s face fill with light when he came to the door have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a man with a history he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back in order to protect his daughter.

They tell me I’m lucky to have a son who’s so verbal, who is blisteringly intelligent, who can take apart the broken microwave and have it working again an hour later.

For his brother, Theo, it’s another indication of why nothing is normal because of Jacob. And over this small family the soul searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder?Emotionally powerful from beginning to end, House Rules looks at what it means to be different in our society, how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way and fails those who don’t.

A life hanging in the balance…
a family torn apart. The 1 internationally bestselling author Jodi Picoult tells an unforgettable story about family secrets, love, and letting go. In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren t so lucky. 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 brilliantly describes 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?
Leaving Home brings together three previously published short pieces, each dealing with a variation on the theme of Leaving Home. The first, Weights and Measures, deals with the tragic loss of a child; the second is a non fiction letter Picoult wrote to her eldest son as he left for college; and Ritz tells the story of a mother who takes the vacation all mothers need sometime. It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong. The Washington Post
