Title:  Lone wolf : a novel

Author: Jodi Picoult

Collection:  Adult Fiction

As with all Jodi Picoult books, there is always a huge debatable topic covered and this novel deals with a family’s heart-rending decision for their father – continue life as a comatose patient or allow death by removing life-support.

Luke Warren, the well-known Wolf Whisperer, and his daughter Cara has been involved in a terrible accident, leaving him in a coma and machine dependent and Cara, injured. Cara, who has lived with her father and his wolf-pack predominately since her parents divorced years ago waits upon a miracle. But, Cara has an older brother, Edward, that left home years ago, who feels that his Dad would not want him to extend his life as is. Ready for battle, both Cara and Edward will find that there are no winners with either decision..

Interesting facts about wolves and their packs are woven into the storyline, but there were times when I questioned Luke’s sanity as when he left his young family for a year to disappear off the map and live with the wolves.
