New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult captivates readers in this riveting tale of a brother and sister faced with a decision that will forever alter their relationship…and their lives.
Few know better than 24-year-old Edward Warren the loneliness of a prodigal son. After an irreparable fight with his father six years ago, Edward sought sanctuary in Thailand, and has remained there since. But a frantic phone call suddenly destroys all hope of reconciliation: a terrible accident has injured his sister Cara and left his father in a coma.
Despite the knowledge that her dad’s chances for recovery are minimal, a recovering Cara is determined to wait for a miracle. Edward is all for terminating life support and donating his father’s organs. Is he motivated by altruism or revenge? And to what lengths will Cara go to stop her brother from making an irrevocable decision?
Lone Wolf explores the notions 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? This latest tour de force from Jodi Picoult examines the wild and lonely terrain upon which love can battle reason.

This book is well written and very interesting. The details about wolves and parallels drawn with the family were well done. I would recommend this book as a refreshing "read"!

I loved it!
Convincing, well-researched, readable...And since I am one of the many who are fascinated by wolves, I found this to be the most interesting book I have read for a while.
I thought the characters were convncing, but somehow I didn't get to know all of them that well. Of course, the story line demanded complexities that don't fit well into the usual available space!
The shifting of timescape and narrator was sometimes almost frustrating, but it definitely added suspense as the plot was resolved. This book deserves its place on the best-seller lists!
I am a hugge fan, but had a hard time getting through this book. In fact I skimmed through some pages. I suppose you need to be a fan of wolves to find it interesting. I found the plot to be extremely lacking as well.
I am a huge Jodi Picoult fan but this book left me a little disappointed. As a dog lover I was fascinated by the insights into pack behavior, but some of what happened was just too improbable and oddly enough some was too predictable.
Looking forward to the next one though!
