MEET THE AUTHOR: Jodi Picoult is the acclaimed bestselling author of twenty-one novels, seven of which have debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list. Her works have been translated into thirty-four languages in thirty-five countries, and four have been made into television movies. In 2009, New Line Cinema released My Sister’s Keeper, starring Cameron Diaz as a major motion picture. Her newest novel, Leaving Time will be published on October 14, 2014. Picoult lives in New Hampshire with her husband, Tim. They have three children.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Leaving Time is an exploration of the enduring love between mothers and daughters. Alice Metcalf, a devoted mother and accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants, disappears, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life. A decade later, Alice’s now thirteen-year-old daughter, Jenna, refuses to believe her mother chose to desert her, and sets out to investigate her mother’s disappearance.
