Struggling with the realities of their baby's illness, Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe work through their initial heartbreak and the pitying stares of seemingly more fortunate parents by spending time with little Willow, who proves unexpectedly remarkable and forces her parents to reevaluate their ideas about what they might have chosen for their family.
Bestselling author Jodi Picoult crafts another dramatic tale of a family torn apart by a child's illness. Willow was born with a rare disease, and when her parents try to sue for a "wrongful birth" in order to get financial help with Willow's care, they are forced to say whether or not they would have terminated the pregnancy had they known of Willow's illness. Picoult's novels are always rife with controversial lawsuits and medical mysteries, and fans of MY SISTER'S KEEPER will likely enjoy HANDLE WITH CARE.
