To me, this book was a compelling story about mother/daughter relationships and the amazing nature of elephants and their social culture. Jodi Picoult is truly an amazing storyteller and always draws me in from the first page. She does a fantastic job writing characters that are diverse, yet authentic and identifiable. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written story that will keep you interested and intrigued. I also believe it would be a wonderful book club choice.
My favorite quote from the book: "If you think about someone you've loved and lost, you are already with them. The rest is just details.” To my Mom, I think about you all the time!
