A retired English teacher, I appreciate the value of a good short story, one that is both amusing and heartrending at the same time. Perhaps it is a forgotten genre, the short story. There's nothing better than an anthology of a collection of stories to always be at the ready to entertain us in the doctor's waiting room, on public transportation, or just waiting for life to happen!
Serenity Jones is one of the three narrators featured in LEAVING TIME. She possesses has unusual psychic gifts, she discovered since she was a child. Now she is the host of her TV show, where she delivers messages to the living from loved ones who have passed.
Readers will learn in upcoming LEAVING TIME, Jenna will be searching for her mom Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident, when she was a child. Jenna only has her mom’s Alice’s journals, as she studied grief among elephants and the animals she loved, as she frantically continues to look for clues of her mother while seeking the help of Serenity Jones, a psychic and Virgil Stanhope, a jaded private detective who originally investigated Alice’s case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues.
Also recommend LARGER THAN LIFE, another e-short story as a prequel to LEAVING TIME, set in Botswana, in 1999, about Alice, a naturalist, and researcher, focused on studying elephants. In LARGER THAN LIFE, we learn details about Alice, and her love and passion for elephants as she risks her career to care for a calf, while she comes to understand the depth of a parent's love.
As I have mentioned previously in my other reviews, what is not to like about Jodi Picoult? Everything she writes is powerful, riveting, and brilliant! You will not want to miss this series, and as always, no one can tell it better than Picoult!
I loved delving into the mind of a psychic to learn how it all works. I trust Picoult to do her homework, and in this short story she creates a very credible character that reminded me of the Long Island Madame, more than just a little. Serenity deserves a novel to go along with this short story and her co-staring role in Leaving Time. She smart and sassy, and endlessly interesting. I don't know when I've enjoyed a character more.
This short story can stand alone, or read in addition to Leaving Time. I've heard that short stories are difficult, but Jodi Picoult makes it look easy as she moves between full-length novels and short stories. I really enjoyed this book
