Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult comes a compelling and disturbing novel about a prep school teacher accused of rape by a group of young girls, the woman who stands by him, and the repercussions of the case in a small New England town where the past is only a heartbeat away.
Love can redeem a man...but secrets and lies can condemn him.
A handsome stranger comes to the sleepy New England town of Salem Falls in hopes of burying his past: Once a teacher at a girls' prep school, Jack St. Bride was destroyed when a student's crush sparked a powder keg of accusation. Now, washing dishes for Addie Peabody at the Do-or-Diner, he slips quietly into his new routine, and Addie finds this unassuming man fitting easily inside her heart. But amid the rustic calm of Salem Falls, a quartet of teenage girls harbor dark secrets - and they maliciously target Jack with a shattering allegation.
Now, at the center of a modern-day witch hunt, Jack is forced once again to proclaim his innocence: to a town searching for answers, to a justice system where truth becomes a slippery concept written in shades of gray, and to the woman who has come to love him.

Boring and predictable

I have read and loved every one of Picoult's books but found this one to be so very disappointing. The characters were hard to sympathise with and the storyline and pace were slow and left me disinterested in the outcome- which I had guessed early on. I only continued to the end to see if I was right.
Perhaps Picoult sounds better in my own voice as the narration grated intensely. I want to mention a positive, but I can't find one.....

A bit of slog.

The storyline was quite good. The twist pretty obvious. But the main thing I didn't like about it, without spoilers, was the characterisations of the female characters.
