Justice and Atonement and Capital Punishment
Title: Change of Heart
By: Jodi Picoult
Change of Heart is a thought provoking and compelling novel about religion, murder, incest, organ donation, and the death penalty. As the characters in the book reevaluate their beliefs and feelings about these issues, the reader is compelled to do the same. Picoult skillfully weaves together a story of all the people touched by a heinous crime over the course of the eleven years between the crime and the scheduled execution of the criminal. This is a book that will make you think.
