Notes from my copy:
A book full of double entendre's about the heart - as the object of love, hearts breaking, Nicholas' chosen physician specialty and the love between a couple, parents, children and grandchildren. At the core, it's a book about relationships - Paige's loss when he mother left her behind at age 5, her final reconnection with her mother as an adult, Nicholas' rise to chief of cardiothoracic surgery, and thumbing his nose at his upbringing by marrying Paige from the wrong side of the tracks, yet being unable to open his heart to really understand her & understand why she was lost in the world he took for granted. When she runs off 3 months after having Max to find her own mother, Nicholas has to turn to his parents, who are nothing like he thinks they are - and when Paige comes back, they are the ones that take her in. He believes that he should divorce her...and he doesn't have an open heart to understand anything, but when she sees Max's illness when he can't, maybe, just maybe, she really should have custody of Max. Will they divorce? Will Nicholas learn to not only fix broken medical hearts, but open his own? The book, as is often the case with Picoult, is left open at the end.
