Leaving time by Jodi Picoult


I received an arc from Good reads First to read for an honest review.

“When someone leaves you once, you expect it to happen again. Eventually you stop getting close enough to people to let them become important to you, because then you don’t notice when they drop of your world.”
Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

“In the wild, a calf under the age of two will not survive without its mother. In the wild, a mother’s job is to teach her daughter everything she will need to know to become a mother herself. In the wild, a mother and daughter stay together until one of them dies.”
Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

“Could it be as simple as that? Could love be not grand gestures or empty vows, not promises meant to be broken, but instead a paper trail of forgiveness? A line of crumbs made of memories, to lead you back to the person who was waiting?”
Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

“It does not matter who you are or what kind of personal relationship you’ve forged with an elephant: Come between her and her calf, and she will kill you.”

-Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

Jenna Metcalf has been searching for her missing mother Alice for more then a decade after a tragic accident that happened at the animal sanctuary Alice worked at. Jenna searchs for her mother online and reads her journal . Jenna enlist’s the help of a psychic Serenity Jones and a detective Virgil Stanhope that will be a major help in helping her find a  peace of mind about what happened to her mother .  There were a few parts that were slow paced but overall an amazing heartfelt book. I loved the elephants and what they brought towards the story. My theory about what happened changed a few times and in the end I was right about alot  of the details but at the same time blown away by something I never thought of.  I loved the ending and another outstanding book by Jodi Picoult.
