New Hampshire’s first death-row prisoner in more than a half century, Shay Bourne has just a few months to go until his execution when word of miracles he’s performed in front of stunned inmates and prison officials catapults him into national headlines. No less extraordinary is his last request: to donate his heart to his victim’s desperately ill sister.
Called in as the condemned man’s spiritual advisor, Father Michael Wright is moved by Bourne’s sincerity but can’t help asking himself whether it’s possible that a convicted murderer could actually be a messiah. It’s a question Bourne’s lawyer, Maggie Bloom, has little time to contemplate as she tries to find a way to make her client’s wish come true. But is there anyone who can convince June Nealon, a woman tormented by grief and rage—and countless dreams of vengeance—to allow the man she hates a clear path on the road to redemption?
This powerful, emotionally wrought novel raises questions with no easy solutions as Jodi Picoult “forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong” (The Washington Post). But it leaves absolutely no doubt why this #1 bestselling author is widely acclaimed as “a master of the craft of storytelling” (AP Newswire).
