A Spark of Light by: Jodi Picoult

A Spark of Light

Description from the Publisher

Jodi Piccoult has a way of writing about controversial topics and invoking beautiful conversations.  This latest novel is no exception.  Abortion is a hot button topic and has been for many years.  I did not find the story to be a solicitor of anger; or take one side over the other.  I really was invested in this story and its conclusion.
What I find interesting and had a bit of a hard time getting used to was the fact that the story was told backwards.  It took a while to get a grip on that but once I did, I was in it.
Hugh’s role in this book as not only the hostage negotiator but a parent and sibling to two of the hostages was a twist to the “regular” trope of hostage negotiator.  It was so well done.
I must confess that I have already gone out and purchased a beautiful hardback edition for my bookshelves.  This is up there with my other favorite Jodi Picoult novel, Nineteen Minutes.  
I gave this book 5 crowns.
I received an E-ARC of this book from the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
