The Children Act

Ian McEwan

17-year-old Adam has leukemia. Without necessary blood transfusions, he will likely die. His parents, who are Jehovah's Witnesses, are refusing the transfusions because of their religious beliefs. Enter London Family Court Judge Fiona Maye, who must rule on the case. Time is running out. In the course of reaching a decision, Fiona visits Adam in the hospital--an encounter that stirs long-buried feelings in her and powerful new emotions in the boy. Her judgment has momentous consequences for them both. A superbly written drama from the bestselling McEwan (Sweet Tooth, 2012).
