The book we will be discussing is Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult. This novel weaves elephant behavior into a search for a missing mother. Teenager, Jenna Metcalf, was just three years old when her mother disappeared from an elephant sanctuary. Ten years later, she takes up the search for her mother, Alice, by studying Alice’s decade-old journals on grieving elephants. As the facts begin to come together – described in alternating chapters by Jenna, a psychic, a private detective, and Alice’s journals – it all heads toward a thrilling conclusion. And, yes, there is a big twist at the end.
