From the Publisher:
A life hanging in the balance…a family torn apart. The #1 internationally bestselling author Jodi Picoult tells an unforgettable story about family, love, and letting go.Edward Warren, twenty-four, has been living in Thailand for five years, a prodigal son who left his family after an irreparable fight with his father, Luke. But he gets a frantic phone call: His dad lies comatose, gravely injured in the same accident that has also injured his younger sister Cara.

With her father’s chances for recovery dwindling, Cara wants to wait for a miracle. But Edward wants to terminate life support and donate his father’s organs. Is he motivated by altruism, or revenge? And to what lengths will his sister go to stop him from making an irrevocable decision?

Lone Wolf explores the notion of family, and the love, protection and strength it’s meant to offer. But what if the hope that should sustain it, is the very thing that pulls it apart? Another tour de force from Jodi Picoult, Lone Wolf examines the wild and lonely terrain upon which love battles reason.

Annotation:
Noted conservationist and wolf expert Luke Warren lies gravely injured and unresponsive in the hospital, but he remains a central figure in Jodi Picoult's LONE WOLF, as his grown children argue over his fate. Edward, 23 and estranged from his father for years, wants to disconnect life support and donate Luke's organs, while 17-year-old Cara longs for him to make a miraculous recovery. Picoult touches upon the themes of sibling rivalry, medical ethics, and the bonds between man and nature in what is sure to be another entry on her long list of best-sellers.
Author Bio
Jodi Picoult
Jodi Picoult (pronounced pee-KOE) is a remarkably prolific writer of riveting topical fiction, whose books became a mainstay on bestseller lists worldwide during the first decade of the 21st century. Picoult was born (in 1966) and raised on Long Island in New York, and spent her high school years in New Hampshire before attending Princeton University. She certainly made the most of her undergraduate years: she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, had her first two short stories published in a major magazine, and graduated magna cum laude. Perhaps more importantly, Picoult fell in love with a fellow student named Tim van Leer, who became her husband and the father of her three children. Despite her early writing success, Picoult did not immediately consider a career as an author. She actually worked for a Wall Street brokerage until the crash of 1987, and later as an eighth grade English teacher, before she went to Harvard to get her Masters degree in education. Picoult wrote her first novel, SONGS OF THE HUMPBACK WHALE, while she was pregnant with her first child, and she has not looked back since, publishing an average of one novel per year between 1992 and 2009. Her novels, including number one bestsellers such as NINETEEN MINUTES and MY SISTER'S KEEPER, typically involve characters faced with seemingly impossible ethical decisions, which are revealed from multiple points of view. She has some very real experience in such situations, as her son Jake was diagnosed with an extremely rare double case of cholesteatoma, a growth of tumors in both ears, which threatened to leave him deaf or worse. Picoult and her family opted for an experimental procedure which required more than a dozen operations, but Jake made a full recovery and regained his hearing in both ears. In addition to her novels, in 2007 Picoult enjoyed a short but very successful run writing for the comic book Wonder Woman.

Praise

"[The author] probes intriguing matters of the heart while introducing her fans to subjects they might not otherwise explore. You can always count on Picoult for a terrific page-turner about a compelling subject." 12/19/2011

"Picoult shows off her skill less as a fiction writer than as a researcher. She's able to make obscure medical conditions, legal issues, or, in this case, scientific research about wolves, utterly absorbing and accessible to the lay reader." - Deirdre Donahue 02/27/2012
