"In this provocative and profoundly meaningful novel about a mother’s
love for her son, the legendary Lois Lowry returns us to the menacingly
sterile world of The Giver with a narrative that truly stands on its own
even as it offers a stunning conclusion to a story that’s been twenty
years in the making."
“So much about the community in The Giver is mysterious to its members. In Son, an aspect that many readers couldn't help but wonder about -- the experience of the Birthmothers -- is detailed. A compelling final volume, this new story adds depth and maturity to The Giver quartet.”
