PDF | On Jan 1, , Campbell Jones and others published Handle with care. You're the best thing that I've ever found;. Cadd9 D G (N.C) handle me with care. D Cadd9 G. / D Cadd9 G. /. Reputations changeable, situations tolerable. Handle With Care (Jodi Picoult, ) explores the knotty tangle of medical ethics and personal morality in the case of a disabled child and her mother's attempt.

She is starting first grade and is going to a camp for kids with OI. Amelia received treatment for her eating disorder and came back healthy and with a passion for painting. Charlotte wrote a recipe book as she used to be a pastry chef and is donating all the money to the OI Foundation. Sean and Charlotte reconcile and put the check aside for when they really need it.

Willow has always been jealous of her sister as she is a brilliant ice skater. One day, she wanders to a frozen pond alone and tries to crawl over it carefully, but the thin ice breaks under her weight, drowning her.

Willow mentions how, this time, it wasn't her that broke. The story concludes with Charlotte saying that the check was buried with Willow.

After Willow's death, however, she tucks the check into the lining of Willow's coffin, never cashing it. He is a police officer who works hard to support his family. Although he initially attempts to set aside his personal feelings about the lawsuit in order to support Charlotte, his disgust for the wrongful birth suit eventually leads him to testify for the defense.

He also files for divorce from Charlotte, although they reunite eventually. Willow O'Keefe: Born with osteogenesis imperfecta - also known as brittle bone disease - leading to the family greatly needing money to pay for her treatment. She is extremely intelligent and is especially interested in trivia, and often reads while recovering from a bone break. During the lawsuit, she worries that her parents do not want her anymore because she isn't perfect. Near the end of the book, she goes out skating.

The ice breaks, and Willow, trapped underneath, drowns. He also files for divorce from Charlotte, although they reunite eventually.

Handle with care: a novel

Amelia O'Keefe: Willow's older half-sister, who is overshadowed by her sister's illness. Amelia falls in love with a boy who has the same disease as her sister with whom she meets at a convocation for her sister.

She lies and tells them that she has OI, but he finds out. Eventually the differences in their health leads to him breaking up with her which further pushes her into isolation since her entire family is occupied by the lawsuit. She then develops bulimia and self-harms.

She begins shoplifting from various stores and she dyes her hair blue. Sean eventually discovers her secrets after Piper brings them to his attention because pipes burst in their home from being eroded by the stomach acid caused by her bulimia. Charlotte suggests that Amelia goes to a treatment center. Amelia, furious, states in court as a witness that Charlotte told Willow that she would never wish that Willow had never been born.

Charlotte admits later on that they should have discussed the treatment center as a family before she and Sean made that kind of decision. Marin Gates: The lawyer handling the O'Keefes' case, although she is privately opposed to it. She is adopted and searching for her birth mother, who she eventually discovers by chance on the jury for Charlotte's case. However, her mother tells her that Marin's father was a rapist and makes it clear she doesn't want to know her daughter.

Marin accepts this and becomes closer to her adoptive parents. Piper Reece: Charlotte's best friend and obstetrician, as well as the godmother to Willow. She is a competent doctor, although she takes an extended break from work during the lawsuit. Many states had banned wrongful birth suits.

In New Hampshire, a parent was responsible for the care of a disabled child their whole life — not just till age eighteen — which was as good a reason as any to seek damages. To put it bluntly: I rolled my eyes. He clapped me on the back. But if we were asked to defend a client who was a neo-Nazi in a criminal suit, could you do your job — even if you found his beliefs disgusting?

Bob shook his head. Charlotte winced. In the shape of skates. From scratch. The rest of the moms already blacklisted me because I missed the spring show for a medical conference.

While you were stitching an episiotomy? After being on call for thirty-six hours? You could bake circles around --what on earth are you doing? Not for a long time. Are you okay? Just then the older girls clattered down the stairs. The idea was just the germ of a seed, carried home in the hollow beneath my breastbone when we left the law offices. Even when I was lying awake next to Sean, I heard it as a drumbeat in my blood: For four years now I had loved you, hovered over you, held you when you had a break.

I had gotten exactly what I so desperately wished for: So how could I admit to anyone — much less myself — that you were not only the most wonderful thing that had ever happened to me…you were also the most exhausting, the most overwhelming? They wanted to just run something by us. This time, Amelia was in school, but we still had to bring you. And this time, they were ready: When the secretary brought us back to meet the lawyers, we were not led to the conference room.

Instead she opened the door to an office that was a hundred different shades of white: You craned your neck, taking this all in. Was it supposed to look like Heaven?

And if so, what did that make Robert Ramirez? Does the name Marcus Cavendish ring a bell? Cavendish is Scottish. And according to him, it appears that you have a good cause of action of medical malpractice against your obstetrician. She should have been able to recognize that your baby was suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta back then, long before the next ultrasound, where the broken bones were visible.

My head was spinning; and Sean looked utterly confused. The implication is that if your provider had told you earlier on that your baby was going to be impaired, you would have had choices and options as to whether or not to continue with the pregnancy. Sean spoke for me: As he stood up, so did Robert Ramirez. Sean towered over the lawyer, and for a second, I thought he might swat Ramirez out of his way. At this, you lifted your face.

He pulled you into his arms, but too fast — the grape juice box you were holding tumbled onto the leather and then the floor, a rapidly spreading puddle as dark as blood.

That gorgeous, creamy leather; it would be ruined. He was already striding down the hall, volcanic, as I mopped up the juice. I realized that both lawyers were staring at me, and I rocked back on my heels. Bring two cups of milk just to a boil in a non-reactive saucepan.

In a stainless steel bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar, and cornstarch. Temper yolk mixture with milk. Put milk and yolk mixture back on the heat, whisking constantly. When mixture starts to thicken, whisk faster until it boils, and then remove from heat. Add vanilla and pour into a stainless steel bowl. Put in fridge and chill before serving. Heat the raspberry puree to lukewarm in a heavy saucepan.

Whisk the egg yolks with 3 oz of sugar in large mixing bowl; whisk in flour and raspberry puree, and return mixture to heavy saucepan. Cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly, until the custard is thick.

Do not allow it to boil. Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate until completely melted. Mix in liqueur. Cover the base mixture with plastic to prevent a skin from forming. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks with the remaining 1 oz. And here is the part where you will see it: Neither one will be willing to give up its substance: Bake immediately.

In food processor combine flour, salt, sugar and butter. Pulse until coarse. In small bowl whisk egg yolk and ice water. With processor running add yolk mixture to flour and butter until ball forms. Remove dough, wrap in plastic, flatten to a disk and chill for 1 hour. Roll dough out on lightly floured surface, place in tart pan with removal bottom. Chill dough before baking. Preheat oven to Remove tart pan from fridge, prick crust all over with a fork, line shell with foil and fill with dried beans.

Bake for 17 minutes, remove foil and beans and continue baking for another 6 minutes. Cool completely before filling. Combine cream, egg yolks, sugar and flour.

Pour over apricots, sprinkle with almonds. Bake in preheated degree oven for 35 minutes. In a two quart saucepan, mix sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Using a candy thermometer, heat to hardball stage, stirring only until the sugar is dissolved. Meanwhile, beat the eggs white to stiff peaks. When the syrup reaches degrees F, add it gradually to the egg whites while beating at high speed in a mixer. Add vanilla. Continue to beat until the candy takes shape — about five minutes.

Stir in the nuts and cherries. Quickly drop the candy from a teaspoon onto waxed paper, finishing each piece with a swirl, and let cool to room temperature. To make the caramel, mix sugar, water, corn syrup and lemon juice in a medium nonreactive saucepan a light colored one, so you can see the color of the syrup.

Simmer over medium-high heat — wiping the sides of the pan with a wet cloth to make sure there are no sugar crystals lurking that might cause crystallization. Cook for about eight minutes, until syrup turns from clear to gold, swirling the pan to make sure browning occurs evenly.

Remove pan immediately from heat and pour a portion of the caramel into each of eight ungreased 5 or 6 oz. Allow the caramel to cool and harden, about 15 minutes.

These can be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to two days, but return them to room temperature before you move onto to the next step. To make custard, heat milk and cream in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until a thermometer in the liquid reads degrees.

Remove mixture from heat. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, yolks and sugar in a large bowl until just combined. Whisk the warm milk mixture, vanilla, and salt into the egg mixture until just mixed — but not foamy. Strain mixture through a mesh sieve into a large measuring cup and set aside.

Bring two quarts of water to boil. Meanwhile, fold a dish towel to fit the bottom of a large roasting pan. Divide reserved custard mixture between the ramekins and place the filled ramekins on the towel in the pan, making sure they do not touch. Set pan on center rack of a degree oven.

Fill pan with boiling water to reach halfway up the ramekins and cover entire pan loosely with aluminum foil, so that steam can escape. Bake minutes, until a paring knife inserted halfway between the center and edge of the custards comes out clean. Transfer custards to wire rack and cool to room temperature. To unmold, slide a paring knife around the outer edge of the custard, hold serving plate over the top of the ramekin, invert, and shake gently to release the custard.

Serve immediately. Add flour if necessary, to make the dough easier to shape. On lightly floured surface, turn dough out and knead five minutes, until it is smooth and elastic.

This, I will add, was your favorite part — you would stand on a chair and throw your weight into it. When finished, put into greased bowl and turn over once, so greased side faces up.

Caramel comes next: Remove from heat and add corn syrup. Pour the mixture into a 13x9x2 inch ungreased pan. Sprinkle with pecan halves. For the filling, mix together the chopped pecans, the 2 T of sugar and 2 T of brown sugar, and the cinnamon, set aside. Take your fist and punch down the dough.

Then, on a lightly floured surface, flatten it into a rectangle, about 15x10 inches. Spread with 2 T of butter and then dust evenly with the chopped pecan mixture. Beginning at the 10 inch side of the rectangle, roll the dough up tightly and pinch the edge to seal. Roll it, stretch it, mold it until it is even, a cylinder. Cut the roll into eight quarter-inch slices, and place in pan, not quite touching.

Wrap pan tightly with aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 12 hours, overnight. Dream of them rising, that proof again, evidence that some things grow bigger than we ever expect. Heat oven to degrees and bake 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately invert on a platter and serve warm. First, make the topping: Then, make the batter by sifting together flour, baking powder and salt. Set this aside, too.

In bowl of electric mixer using the paddle attachment, combine butter and sugar until creamy and soft about minutes. Beat eggs in one at a time. Beat in the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in berries and peaches. Spread batter into prepared pan and crumble topping mixture on top of batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until tester comes out clean, and the top of the buckle is golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and immediately place the peach in ice water.

Peel the peach — the skin will come right off — and slice into thin wedges or small pieces for the buckle. Prepare pie shell. Meanwhile, combine sugar, corn starch, salt, and water in a non-reactive saucepan.

Mix until there are no lumps and whisk as it gradually comes to a boil. Remove from heat, add butter. On low speed beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until combined. Increase speed and whip until they form stiff peaks. Beat in sugar, one tablespoon at a time. Whisk eggs and sugar over double boiler. Once they are completely mixed, fold in whipped cream. Remove from heat, pass through a sieve, and add rum.

Place egg whites and pinch of salt in mixing bowl; on low speed mix whites until smooth. Gradually increase speed and sprinkle in sugar. Beat until whites hold a soft peak — this is meringue, the cloud I imagine you resting on nowadays.

Meanwhile, simmer water or milk. Take spoonful of meringue and gently drop into simmering liquid. Cook meringue for minutes and with slotted spoon, turn over and continue cooking for another minutes. Transfer poached meringue to paper towel. They are fragile. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, wiping any excess off with a paper towel. Place the sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan and cook over low heat. Stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved.

Raise heat to high and bring mixture to a boil, until a candy thermometer registers F hard-crack stage. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Let stand to thicken, about 1 minute. Dip a fork into the sugar syrup and wave back and forth over the baking sheet to paint long threads of sugar. The syrup will begin hardening almost immediately. With practice you can form the strands into lace, swirls, the letters of your name. Toggle navigation.
