I enjoyed this book and the way Jodi Picoult writes. She tells the stories from different characters' points of view. Time goes forward on one character and backwards on another. Very well put together, creating a web and a whole story. The truth appearing somewhere in between.

Wasn't all that impressed with this collection. Loved 19 minutes and Family Rules so I thought this would be a good light read. Of the three, Salem Falls was the most interesting for me.

I didn't think much of Songs of the Humpback Whale, but the others are good. Love Jodi Picoult and have her latest, written with her daughter, waiting on my shelf
