Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This American author takes gritty, social issues as the themes of her hard-hitting tales and keeps you turning the pages in astonishment through twists, misunderstandings and injustices. Here we have a mother’s fury and pain spilling out of control with truly alarming consequences. It couldn’t happen in the same way in the UK but as a piece of emotional drama it’s terrific. She was one of the Richard and Judy Book Club picks and has an impressive backlist, all of which I also highly recommend.

Similar this month: None but try Nicholas Evans.
Comparison: Anita Shreve, Joshilyn Jackson.

If you like Jodi Picoult you might also like to read books by Maggie O'farrell, Alice Hoffman and Anita Shreve.

Synopsis

Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

As an assistant district attorney, Nina Frost prosecutes the sort of crimes that tear families apart. But when Nina and her husband discover that their five-year-old son Nathaniel has been sexually abused, it is her own family that is devastated. The world Nina inhabits now seems different from the one she once lived in: the lines between family and professional life are erased, and answers to questions she thought she knew are no longer easy to find. Overcome by anger and desperate for vengeance, Nina ignites a battle that may cause her to lose the very thing she's fighting for.
