Jenna Metcalf has not stopped mourning the disappearance of her mother Alice for the past 10 years and seeks the help of psychic Serenity Jones and the original police officer who was on the case when the incident occurred, now ex-cop Virgil Stanhope, to help her solve this mystery. Jenna was separated from her mother at the age of three after an elephant trampled an employee at the sanctuary owned by her scientist parents. That evening changed the life of Jenna, who ended up with her grandmother and no explanation of what happened.

This traumatic event also changed the lives of all the members of this close-knit family that worked to provide a sanctuary for rescued and former circus elephants. With the help of her mother’s transcripts, used to document her observations of elephants while she worked in Africa as a young student and then later as the wife of Thomas Metcalf at their sanctuary, Jenna is able to piece together enough information to work through a series of scenarios of why her mother left her.

This book is full of surprises and is another page-turner from this best selling author Jodi Picoult.
