The new page-turner from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult is a thought-provoking examination of racism in America.
Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient.

The next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?
