Lone Wolf

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: February 2012

Duration: 12 hours 59 minutes


In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time. In many ways, Luke understands wolf dynamics better than those of his own family. His wife, Georgie, has left him, finally giving up on their lonely marriage. His son, Edward, twenty-four, fled six years ago, leaving behind a shattered relationship with his father. Edward understands that some things cannot be fixed, though memories of his domineering father still inflict pain. Then comes a frantic phone call: Luke has been gravely injured in a car accident with Edward’s younger sister, Cara. Suddenly everything changes: Edward must return home to face the father he walked out on at age eighteen. He and Cara have to decide their father’s fate together. Though there’s no easy answer, questions abound: What secrets have Edward and his sister kept from each other? What hidden motives inform their need to let their father die . . . or to try to keep him alive? What would Luke himself want? How can any family member make such a decision in the face of guilt, pain, or both? And most importantly, to what extent have they all forgotten what a wolf never forgets: that each member of a pack needs the others, and that sometimes survival means sacrifice?

    Great book, very realistic

  • Margi C

    Couldn't wait to listen to it on my commute to and from work each day, and often sat in the car to listen further. Another excellent Jodi Piccoult story.

  • Liz B

    A little slow to start but overall an interesting read.

  • Doreen TENNANT

    Very drawn out I got bored with it.

  • Cathy Brennon

    A good read. Great story and good narration with lots to think about within family life.

  • Laurie Budash

    Jodi's books teach such interesting facts about animal life, uncovers the various perspectives of people in difficult situations and challenges the reader to examine their own views. Very good premise to examine in Lone Wolf.

  • Megan Jaworski

    The story is great. All of JP books are. The narrator for Georgy was annoying. Like she is confused how to read quotes of others.

  • Peggy Miedlar

    I love how there are different voices for the different characters which makes it really easy to follow the story. I also love dogs/wolves so this story is super interesting to me.
