Fans of Jodi Picoult’s touching stories and engaging characters? Our favourites by her include ‘Handle With Care’ and ‘My Sister’s Keeper’. ‘Leaving Time’ is a beautiful read is on our reading list! We liked this succinct and intriguing review (beware of spoilers). We urge you to give it a try even if it is outside your comfort reader-zone! 🙂
The book alternates between Alice the Elephant Keeper and teen daughter Jenna, who wants to find out how her mom died. So she talks to the psychic. There are multiple narrators for Jenna’s half of the book, and only some are interesting.
And then (spoiler) not quite, but ‘it was all a dream’ twist ending. Nothing is as it seems. There are clues to The Truth but they are all carefully explained away each time. Very annoying.
