Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult
Picture Perfect is the story about dysfunctional families, love and abuse.
A young, Native American police officer finds, Cassie wandering a cemetery. She has no idea who she is and what she is doing there. Cassie has amnesia. Cassie is found to be the wife of, Alex Rivers, a A-list Hollywood actor.
Readers along with, Cassie learn that she is a anthropologist and professor of anthropology. Picoult takes up back in time and we "watch" Cassie and Alex fall in love and then the marriage spiral out of control. Picoult, weaves real time into her story and we learn just how important the police officer becomes to, Cassie and vice versa.
Cassie's memories resurface piece by piece, some more haunting than others. These memories are what MAKE the book, in particular the ones referencing her childhood and Connor. In fact, I would be much more interested to read a novel on Cassie and Connor than the one of Alex and Cassie. The story is good enough but it is trapped in time. In the time before cell phones were a dime a dozen, before 9/11 when sending a loved one off at an airport was vastly different than now.
This book is about, how people are victims of their childhoods and how it carries on to their adult lives.
