Description

When Willow is born with severe osteogenesis imperfecta, her parents are devastated - she will suffer hundreds of broken bones as she grows, a lifetime of pain. In this provocative story from the number-one New York Times best-selling author, "Picoult writes with unassuming brilliance" (Stephen King).

Every expectant parent will tell you that they don't want a perfect baby, just a healthy one. Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe would have asked for a healthy baby, too, if they'd been given the choice. Instead their lives are made up of sleepless nights, mounting bills, the pitying stares of "luckier" parents, and, maybe worst of all, the what-ifs. What if their child had been born healthy? But it's all worth it because Willow is, funny as it seems, perfect. She's smart as a whip, on her way to being as pretty as her mother, kind, brave, and, for a five-year-old, an unexpectedly deep source of wisdom. Willow is Willow, in sickness and in health.

Everything changes, though, after a series of events forces Charlotte and her husband to confront the most serious what-ifs of all. What if Charlotte had known earlier of Willow's illness? What if things could have been different? What if their beloved Willow had never been born? To do Willow justice, Charlotte must ask herself these questions and one more: What constitutes a valuable life?

Emotionally riveting and profoundly moving, Handle with Care is an unforgettable novel about the fragility of life and the lengths we will go to protect it.

Handle with Care

Another great story by Jodi Picoult! As an RN, I have once taken care of a young boy with OI and what a challenge this young boy was. However challenging, he was the sweetest boy and took after Mom, sweet and polite.
Thank you Jodi for writing a story about something that isn’t seen very often. Nice work Jodi and please do t stop writing. 😊

Captivating story told in an excellent way

The story of this book is captivating and moving, if not tragic. As always, Jodi Picoult combines a fascinating plot with learning something - in this case about the hardships of a family with an ill child and the stress it puts not just on the family, but also on friends and life. I loved everything about this book except for quoting recipes (hence only 4 stars overall), even though it made me sad and mad at times. The narration was fabulous.

Awful

This story is awful. I couldn't get halfway through it. A husband raping his wife to teach her a lesson is disgusting. I didn't expect this context to be in this book. Very disappointed

I didn’t care for reading the recipes

I enjoyed the overall story and it makes you think of what you might do in the same circumstances. But reading the recipes really annoyed me. I do realize that it usually tied into a point in the story but it was a distraction to me otherwise it was a good story and was performed well.

Disappointed!

The main character was so condescending it made my skin crawl! This book was at least twice, if not three times longer than it needed to be and the ending was ridiculous!!
Can I have my hours back to listen to a good book? Usually like her books but this wasn’t one of them.
