Leaving Time

One of our library patrons read Jodi Picoult's " Leaving Time" and wanted to share a review with others who might be interested in reading the novel.

For over a decade, Jenna Metcalf obsesses on her vanished mom Alice. Jenna searches online, rereads journals of the scientist who studied grief among elephants. Two unlikely allies are Serenity Jones, psychic for missing people who doubts her gift, and Virgil Stanhope, jaded PI who originally investigated cases of Alice and her colleague. Hard questions and answers.


Wonderful read! Picoult captures and keeps your attention throughout the entire book. Although the book contains various narrators ( Jenna, Alice, a detective, a psychic), it was written in a way that allows you to flow through each and piece them together.  The ending is SO unexpected. Love the twist.
