Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of our Books of the Year 2014.

November 2014 Book of the Month.

To tell you much about this might give away the surprise and shocking ending, suffice to say it is written from the point of view of a daughter, Jenna, desperate to find the truth about the disappearance of her mother ten years earlier, and by that mother, Alice, who fills us in on Jenna’s childhood up to the fateful night when tragedy struck. To learn what happens from then on you have got to read this terrific tale.

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'Leaving Time does all the usual Jodi Picoult things: tells a rattling good story that means you can’t turn the pages fast enough; creates characters so real and vivid you expect to meet them walking down the street; teaches you something you didn’t know – and didn’t know you wanted to know! In this case what we learn about is elephants; the characters are a 13-year-old whose mother has vanished, a discredited psychic and a washed-up PI; and the question that keeps you going is ‘What could have happened to Jenna’s mother?’ But there are extra dimensions to this book that make it truly special: an extraordinary understanding of loss and grief and the relationship between mothers and children, and a humdinger of a conclusion.' - Carolyn Mays, Editor, Hodder & Stoughton

If you like Jodi Picoult you might also like to read books by Anita Shreve, Joanna Trollope and Alice Hoffman.

Synopsis

Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

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

Over ten 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.
