Leaving Time - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Jodi Picoult, Rebecca Lowman (Narrator), Abigail Revasch (Narrator), Kathe Mazur (Narrator), Mark Deakins (Narrator) 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 that she would be abandoned as a young child, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals. A scientist who studied g... more »rief 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. The first is Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons—only to later doubt her gifts. The second is Virgil Stanhope, a jaded private detective who 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.

I didn't enjoy this audiobook very much. The voice of Alice was slow and contrived, making her sound stoned much of the time. The story was drawn out far too long and I found myself bored and wanting to turn it off. Not being a quitter, I kept pushing through. The twist at the end just ticked me off. I waded through at least 10 cds for this? Oh good grief. Not a fan. Not a fan at all of this book. Picoult has written other books I enjoyed. I wish I'd have never picked this one up.
