Publisher's Summary

Exploring the complexities of race relations in modern times, Jodi Picoult challenges us with ideas about justice, empathy and free will. Written with a raw honesty, this audiobook delves into deeply emotional issues about birth and death with an emotional fix that will stay with you long after the last words are spoken.
The new audiobook from number one best-selling author Jodi Picoult, with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.
When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.
Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us. It is about opening your eyes.

brilliant book.

This book made me reassess my reaction to racism. I thought it was well researched and, of course, extremely well written by Ms Picoult. My Mum and I always exchanged Jodi Picoult's books and discussed them. Mum passed away last year and it's my first book without her but she would have loved it.

First but not last

My first Jodi Picoult & I want more absolutely loved this book. The story was so gripping I usually reserve listening for bedtime but this one had me listening while ironing or on the bath couldn't stop but didnt want it to end. Courtroom chapters were really intense. The narrators were perfectly suited to their characters and the subject matter was thought provoking brilliant
