For more than a decade, Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her mother, Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident. Refusing to believe that she would be abandoned as a young child, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts.
Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest. The first is Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons—only to later doubt her gifts. The second is Virgil Stanhope, a jaded private detective who originally investigated Alice’s case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues. As the three work together to uncover what happened to Alice, they realize that in asking hard questions, they’ll have to face even harder answers.
As Jenna’s memories dovetail with the events in her mother’s journals, the story races to a mesmerizing finish.

“You can have the best intentions, but the moment there’s a hairline crack, it is only a matter of time before you go to pieces.” 

Where do I even start with this one? I have read every single one of Picoult's books and absolutely love her. I have not yet read one that didn't leave me sobbing by the end. So why do I insist on finishing her books in public places? I concluded Leaving Time at the gym: Thank goodness I was a sweaty mess because it provided a nice disguise to mask all those tears!

Leaving Time was so compelling! I wouldn't couldn't put it down. Being a fan of Picoult, I know that she does a lot of extensive research regarding the subjects of her books. Leaving Time was no exception. This book has a heavy(no pun intended) Elephant background. We are given an amazing lesson on how the majestic creatures' memories work. I was just as engrossed in those portions of the book as I was of the main, fictional story.

Jodi Picoult is known for her multiple perspective story-telling and this novel was no exception. We experience all sides of the story from 4 POV's: Jenna, the Daughter, Alice, the Mother, Serenity, the Psychic and Virgil, the ex-cop. Each are told in the present tense except for Alice. Her story starts from the Beginning of her work as an Elephant Researcher, leading up the story's main event. Which will leave you on the edge of your seat!

Buckle your seat belt because Leaving Time will take you on one wild adventure. Just as you think you're getting somewhere, or on to something, Jodi Picoult puts her classic spin on things and leads you down a rabbit hole of "What Ifs" and Who-Dunnits".

Another Masterpiece by Jodi Picoult! One that will take you through an epic reading experience. Keep the Kleenex close by and prepare your jaw to drop!
