Alice Metcalf was a devoted mother, loving wife and accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants. Yet it's been a decade since she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life. All signs point to abandonment - or worse.

Still Jenna - now thirteen years old and truly orphaned by a father maddened by grief - steadfastly refuses to believe in her mother's desertion. So she decides to approach the two people who might still be able to help her find Alice: a disgraced psychic named Serenity Jones, and Virgil Stanhope, the cynical detective who first investigated her mother's disappearance and the strange, possibly linked death of one of her mother's coworkers.

Together these three lonely souls will discover truths destined to forever change their lives. Deeply moving and suspenseful, Jodi Picoult's 21st novel is a radiant exploration of the enduring love between mothers and daughters.


  • Good read

    By Snoopy-7
    Interesting book. Couldn't read the ending fast enough as everything was falling into place.
  • What a journey...

    I am balling my eyes out. What a journey this book has taken me on. I have loved elephants since I can remember and the details you put into their part of the story is so heartwarming and heartbreaking. You took me on a journey through the paranormal world too, it is something I am interested in exploring but still scared of. You Jodi make it seem less scary. The suspense, the thrills, the mystery I loved this book!
  • Book of a lifetime

    What a journey! From beginning to end, a truly amazing story
  • Factual and intriguing

    I have read almost all of Jodie's books and found this to be one of the most interesting ones as she explains in the authors notes, a lot of the stories and facts about elephants are true just with different names etc. This novel has two short stories available as prequels - they're only about 50 pages each but are both incredible when tied into this novel. also, be careful of the review below me, don't read it as the silly idiot said what happens at the end of the novel, however it still didn't ruin it for me. I read this book in 2 sittings, highly recommend if you enjoy elephants and the supernatural (psychics)
  • Could not put it down!
