#1  NEW YORK TIMES  BESTSELLER Throughout her blockbuster career, Jodi Picoult has seamlessly blended nuanced characters, riveting plots, and rich prose, brilliantly creating stories that "not only provoke the mind but touch the flawed souls in all of us" ( The Boston Globe ). Now, in her highly anticipated new novel, she has delivered her most affecting work yet--a book unlike anything she's written before.   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 she was abandoned, 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: Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons, only to later doubt her gifts, and Virgil Stanhope, the jaded private detective who'd 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. A deeply moving, gripping, and intelligent page-turner, Leaving Time is Jodi Picoult at the height of her powers. Praise for Leaving Time   "Piercing and uplifting . . . a smart, accessible yarn with a suspenseful puzzle at its core." -- The Boston Globe   "Poignant . . . an entertaining tale about parental love, friendship, loss." -- The Washington Post   "A riveting drama." -- Us Weekly   "[A] moving tale." -- People   "A fast-paced, surprise-ending mystery." -- USA Today   "In Jenna, [Jodi] Picoult has created an unforgettable character who will easily endear herself to each and every reader. . . . Leaving Time may be her finest work yet." -- Bookreporter   "[A] captivating and emotional story." -- BookPage   "With plenty of twists and a surprising ending, [ Leaving Time ] explores the grieving process and what happens when we cannot move on." -- Woman's Day   "A moving and emotional story." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette   "A truly engaging read . . . Full of the deep characters and multilayered story lines that have earned [Picoult] a spot in many readers' hearts." -- Library Journal   "Delivers a powerhouse ending." -- Booklist   "Memorable and poignant." -- Publishers Weekly

display_descriptionAlice Metcalf was a devoted mother, loving wife, and accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants. Yet it's been a decade since she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life. All signs point to abandonment . . . or worse. Still Jenna--now thirteen years old and truly orphaned by a father maddened by grief--steadfastly refuses to believe in her mother's desertion. So she decides to approach the two people who might still be able to help her find Alice: a disgraced psychic named Serenity Jones, and Virgil Stanhope, the cynical detective who first investigated her mother's disappearance and the death of one of her mother's co-workers. Together these three lonely souls will discover truths destined to forever change their lives.
