Yet it's been a decade since she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life.

The last couple of Picoult's novels have not been that good.

Another meaty plot from Picoult.

Standard Picoult throughout most of the book. The twist was a let-down.
