Publisher's Summary

Number one best-selling author Jodi Picoult returns with her compulsive new novel - about the lengths we go to for those who have left us behind; about the staying power of love; and about how three broken souls might have just the right pieces to mend each other.

Jenna Metcalf was with her mother the night she disappeared in tragic and mysterious circumstances, but she remembers nothing.

Over 10 years have passed, and still Jenna reads and rereads her mother's journals, hoping to find some clue hidden there, in the meticulous recording of her scientific research with elephants. Desperate for answers, Jenna uses all her savings to recruit the aid of a private detective - and a psychic.

Jenna knows her mother loved her. She knows she would not leave her. And she will not rest until she finds out what happened that night.

In her most gripping mystery since House Rules, Jodi Picoult brings us a powerful story of a young girl's determination to uncover the truth, however shocking and life-changing it might be.

    Story
    "This should be a movie"

    This is not my usual genre but I heard an interview with the author about this book and my interest was piqued. The authors intertwines the story with information about elephants and their behaviors which I found both interesting and moving. Most people know the common belief that elephants never forget and mankind is foolish to believe that we are the only species that can morn. The story moves along at a good pace and the author develops the characters well and keeps you guessing right up until the twist at the end which I didn't see coming. I wanted to get to the end of the book to find out what happened but also didn't want it to end if that makes sense. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers. I now want to read more of Jodi Picoult`s books and hope they live up to this one.

    "Least enjoyable of her books"

    Over dramatic and over sentimental. Too much about elephants. Irritating voice used for the heroine. Disappointing but still a good story

    "Amazing on every level!"

    I loved this book! I loved the writing of it, the reading of it, the story, the characters, the interesting and completely unexpected twist at the end of it - all of it! There ARE lots of elephants in it - but, in my world, that can only be a good thing!

    Story
    "Didn't enjoy this book"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The actual story line was good. But spoiled by to much description by Alice about the elephants


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Leaving Time?

    The elephant descriptions and the scientific numbers and words by Alice's husband


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy Judi Picoult books but found this one dragging on
