An exquisite tour de force, The Laws of Gravity is a testament to what it means to be a family, what it takes to save a life, and the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love.

Two families, bound by blood. One decision holds the key to survival.

Nicole, red-haired and beautiful, discovers that her life is in danger. She turns to her cousin and childhood best friend Ari for the cord blood he's been banking for his own children. His decision brings them before the scales of justice. Solomon Richter, a state Supreme Court judge on the brink of mandatory retirement, finds himself embroiled in a legal battle unlike any other. A case that calls into question the very things we live for: family, loyalty, friendship and love.

It's Nicole's last chance, Ari's last stand, and the judge's last case.

A novel of heartbreaking honesty, humor and depth; an unforgettable story of justice and love: The Laws of Gravity heralds award-winning Liz Rosenberg as a new storytelling sensation.

Some spoilers: An ordinary family in extraordinary circumstances

 on 12 May 2014
By K. Jordan
Some people dislike the aimless style and ordinary characters. I did though, it’s refreshing to read about ordinary people with ordinary lives and emotions. Most people aren’t hugely interesting after all… those with grand dreams, vibrant personalities and fiery spirits are the minority, most people just want a quiet life filled with their loved ones. Yes, the secondary characters don’t add much to the story, but again it’s just a very honest reflection of life. We all have people we know who are part of our own story but are not integral to it – I also like the not-knowing how things turn out for them, their stories are peripheral to the main one and when it ends, our window into their stories is shuttered, though very much with a “life goes on” motif. Landmark rulings are a rarity, establishing and upholding case law in line with existing legislation and legal parameters is the norm… I liked this aspect of it too. The only thing I really struggled with was to “get” the reasoning behind the refusal, particularly given the personal cost, and I simply could not fathom it, none of the wishy washy reasons ring true. I have therefore come to the (very possibly incorrect) conclusion that the author intended we should recognise that the man has a disorder of some sort and whatever is wrong with him has sadly gone undiagnosed. All in all I really enjoyed this book, but recommend reading the 1-3 star reviews to make sure it’ll be your cup of tea before buying!

A wonderful well written book. A story about family, love, sadness, medical ethics and so much more.

In parts brilliant

Book started a little uninteresting, but before I even realised it, it suddenly picked up pace and grabbed my attention. I metorphically, woke up and sat bolt upright! During the middle third of the book, I was very much reminded of ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ – wont spoil it and tell you why, but this part was really gripping. However the last third of the book, the new characters introduced seemed superfluous to the story and seemed to be padding for a story that was ending too soon. I found myself skipping passages and even a page or two to get back to the main story. A very thought provoking ending and not the one you will want it to have (again don’t want to spoil) and I ended up feeling very sad about the ‘villain’ of the story, he too had lost everything. Good ending, and it’s not often I say that, most stories disappoint me at the last hurdle, not this one. Go on buy it, it has to be worth a try. Not a brilliant book but certainly one worth reading in my opinion.

Thoughtful book

A very thoughtful treatment of a difficult subject. Although the book is centred on a Jewish family it isn’t over religious, rather it explores issues relating to The

A novel about love and family

A novel about love and family. Beautifully written, this book really moved me. It was very thought provoking making me think about both sides of the “argument”. Nice to read a book that stays with you after reading it.

I read it twice!

 on 12 June 2013
By Bookworm
This book was one I couldn’t put down, and I felt myself trying not to race through it to the end because the story was built so well I was desperate to find out how things ended. Nicole is fully likeable as a character, as are all the others, even Ari, whose wholly understandable moral dilemma had him acting as we can only dread that we would act ourselves under similar circumstances. It was authentic in its portrayal of the Jewish family, and the personalities shone through. Jam-packed with moral questions and emotions for all involved, this was an incredibly well-balanced story that strikes at the roots of moral family fibre. I loved it, and the second time I read it I enjoyed even more. I think knowing how a story ends enables you to re-read it and pick up on all kinds of lovely little details that may be missed in the suspense of the first read.

I absolutely loved it, Jodi Piccoult only better

I absolutely loved it, Jodi Piccoult only better. I am having tests for cancer and already had it 9 years ago so lots of piquancy for me. I recommend it wholeheartedly, a brilliant read.

Families

By Mary
I found this very similar too some Jodi Picoult plots but in a Jewish setting…the characters where very real & the relationships described well Families are difficult & complicated & this came across well ….& for once not a happy ending which I found refreshing…a good read……Kaen Flynn

great book, makes you feel sad and think about what would you do?

By P. Poon
A book that reveals the ups and downs to family, life, love and friendship. It made me think that there are 2 sides to every story and whether you were on Nicole’s side or Ari’s side, I could see both perspective and wouldn’t want to be in that position myself. A worthwhile read.

wonderful

What an enjoyable read! Funny, warm but heartbreaking. The author has a brilliant understanding of human nature and family life. She brought these characters to life and we really cared about them. To me they were real people. Well done Liz! Amazing. So sad to finish the book!!!
