Jodi Piccoult is at her best in Leaving Time: A Novel. She drew me in with the story of Jenna Metcalf searching for her mother who vanished after a tragic accident over a decade earlier. Woven into the novel, is her mother’s research on elephants and their grief. Jenna investigates every lead she can find and finds two allies to help with her search. The combination of what they find, Jenna’s memories and the contents of a journal make for an exciting finish. This was a book that I finished and immediately read again…it is that good.
