Jodi Picoult knows how to spin a yarn.

Sinking into her stories is like stepping into a hot bath on a cold night, steam rising off the water and delight drifting through every pore as you relax into it.

This skillfully told tale of grief is seen through the eyes of humans, told through the heart of elephants. You will be captivated by this master of the art of writing. I picture Jodi in a trance as she writes her stories because her characters are so rich and complex that it's as if she channeled them. Enjoy, but don't wait for a cold night! Turn up the AC and enjoy this book now, on a hot summer afternoon.
