Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is not the original book. This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way.

Who would have thought that the discrimination of a black woman could lead to so many tragedies unfolding?

This book Small Great Things tells the story of Ruth - a discriminated black woman from the perspectives of the main characters Turk, Kennedy, and Ruth herself. Ruth was relieved from her duties as a delivery nurse because of her skin color by a white supremacist father. The baby she was supposed to attend to died while Ruth was alone with the baby in the nursery, and this led to a court case that teaches us lessons about empathy, forgiveness, and love.

This incident has not only affected Ruth's life, but also the people around her - especially her son Edison. However, with empathy, forgiveness and love, all things can heal.

Racism comes in many forms: active racism, passive racism - even when we are being overly nice to the minority groups.

P.S.: Small Great Things is an important novel that not only sheds light on discrimination that people of color face, but also teaches us important values in life that we must keep close to our hearts.

"Some lessons can't be taught. They simply have to be learned." - Jodi Picoult

It sure is compelling

I got mixed emotions when i was listening to this compelling book. It's hatred for those white supremacist couple, strong pity for Ruth and admiration for the public defender. Love the dialogues! Obviously, it's written by a pro.

What a brave stand!

Through this summary, I was able to relate what it really feels like to belong to an African-American class like the main character in the story. It's one difficult and challenging topic as it's also happening in real life. I salute Jodi Picoult for making a brave stand!

Dig this summary

It’s like I’ve already read the original book in this summary audiobook. I can strongly feel the emotion of each character. I dig the voice and the pacing of the speaker. Not too fast and not too slow, either. That allowed me to catch every word.

Something to ponder.

Through this, Picoult has challenged her readers to ponder on it and take action against racism. This summary reminds us that racism exists in different forms and there are different types of racists. But the bottom line is being aware and knowing how to take action against it.
