Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's amazing how your opinions change over time. I have read this book three times. Once before I had kids, once when my kids were young, and now when they are nearly grown. I have viewed it differently and taken something different from it each time.
I have more mercy for Paige and Nicholas this time around, but the real standout for me was Astrid. The first time, I felt I understood May. The second time, I felt I understood Paige. And this time, I relate most to Astrid. It's like I was a different person each time I read it, and I suppose I was.
Marriage is hard. Motherhood is hard. Growing up is hard. Anyone who tells you differently is a liar.
Anyway, Jodi Picoult, I still love your books, no matter what version of myself is reading them.
