This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. 2017 Harper Collins Publishing.

Powerful and resonant novel from American master and bestselling author Joyce Carol Oates. In this striking novel she tells the story of two very different and yet intimately linked American families. One is a zealous evangelical who envisions himself as acting out God's will when he assassinates an abortion provider in his small Ohio town. The other is the idealistic but self-regarding doctor who is killed, leaving behind a wife and children scarred and embittered by grief. The author gives the perspectives of two interwoven families whose destinies are defined by their warring conviction - but with great empathy - confronts an intractable, abiding rift in American society.
