Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

Leaving TimeLeaving Time by Jodi Picoult
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Achingly poignant  Leaving Time  is about Jenna's search for her Mother (Alice) who disappeared when she was three (10 years ago) and the lost souls she gets to help her on her mission. Interspersed with diary entries from Alice we meet Virgil the Detective turned PI who was called to the Elephant Sanctuary when Neevie (employee of the sanctuary) was supposedly trampled to death by an elephant, and the pressure he was under to close the case without really investigating it. Virgil has been haunted by Alice's disappearance and the mystery of what really happened at the Elephant Sanctuary that night. We learn about Serenity the psychic who has lost her gift and is down on her luck, when 13 year old Jenna shows up at her door asking for help. Together the threesome track down clues to what really happened that night at the Elephant Sanctuary, until Serenity finds the final clue that brings Alice back to confront her past.
