Leaving Time

Alice Metcalf was a devoted mother, loving wife, and accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants.

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 co-workers.
