Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest: Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons, only to later doubt her gifts, and Virgil Stanhope, the jaded private detective who'd originally invaestigated Alice's case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues. As the three work together to uncover what happened to Alice, they realize that in asking hard questions, they'll have to face even harder answers.
As Jenna's memories dovetail with the events in her mother's journals, the story races to a mesmerizing finish. A deeply moving, gripping, and intelligent page-turner, Leaving Time is Jodi Picoult at the height of her powers.

I have read Christina Dodd before but only in paperback so I was excited to get her new hardback book
. Virtue Falls
by Christina Dodd
"If Elizabeth Banner noticed the interest with which the townspeople talked about her in low tones behind her back, she gave no indication. And in fact, she didn't notice. For as long as she could remember, she had always been the girl who had watched her father kill her mother with the scissors."
If the first paragraph of chapter one doesn't catch your interest, then this book isn't for you. Elizabeth Banner, a noted geologist, has come back to
after 23 years. She didn't return to visit her father, who is now in a memory care facility with Alzheimer's after his
prison term. She returned to study rocks; more specifically to study the Virtue Falls, Washington Pacific Rim tectonic
plates and subduction zones. Elizabeth's
ex-husband, Garik Jacobsen, has also returned to . Then a massive earthquake
hits the area and secrets long buried come to light. Virtue

The Boy on the Wooden Box How the impossible became possible ... on Schindler's list by Leon Leyson
This is true story written by Leon Leyson (born Leib Lezjon) who grew up during the Holocaust. His memoir captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. He survives leaving his home, moving to a
Krakow ghetto, being held in a concentration camp and
being separated from his family for months. Ultimately, it was Oskar Schindler
who saved his life and the lives of over a thousand Jews by adding their names
to his list of factory workers - a list that later became known as Schindler's
Believing no one would be interested in his story,
rarely spoke about his experiences until the film Schindler's List received worldwide
attention. Schindler outwitted the Nazis by claming that his factory workers
were essential to the war effort. Leon Leyson was not. He could only reach his
machine's controls by standing on a wooden box. That box gave him a chance to
look useful, and to stay alive. Leon
