Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult

Change of Heart has dual meaning. It is in the literal and figurative sense. There is a mixture of a variety of story lines in this novel, some of her own some from others.
June Nealon had a seemingly perfect life. She is married to a police officer, has a young daughter who he is helping to raise and expecting a second child and then in an instant it is taken from her. Shay Bourne a man hired to work on their home is found guilty and sentenced to death for taking the lives of her husband and young daughter. 

June is left alone to give birth and raise her daughter  Claire. Claire has a heart issue and without a transplant she will die it's just a matter of time. This is where Shay Bourne reenters the picture(11 years later) --- he wants to give Claire his heart when he is executed but will June allow it, will the law allow it? 

Told in alternating view points from a variety of characters including Shay's lawyer this story will hook you in (if you can get past a few minor yet annoying story lines). Expect a twist and to shed a few tears.
