New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her ability to tap into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she explores what happens when a young woman’s past—a past she didn’t even know she had—catches up to her just in time to threaten her future.

How do you recover the past when it was never yours to lose?

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her beloved, widowed father, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can’t recall … until a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret about herself that changes the world as she knows it—and threatens to jeopardize her future.

With Vanishing Acts, Jodi Picoult explores how life—as we know it—might not turn out the way we imagined; how the people we’ve loved and trusted can suddenly change before our very eyes; how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat. Once again, Picoult handles an astonishing and timely topic with understanding, insight, and compassion.

    " It was ok. I got a little bored in the middle. Not sure how crazy I was about how quickly it kept switching back and forth between present and past. I was not as shocked about the ending as I usually am about most of her books. "

    " cheesy, cheesy cheesy. I don't know why I felt it was necessay to finish it. Maybe it was the native american excerpts and I my background from New Mexico, but I kept with it. I will admit that that i scanned quickly thru the "romantic" narrative. Oh god, how emabarrassing for an almost 60 year old woman. I was expecially annoyed with the use of memory theory and weak indicator of Loftus studies for the DV and sexual abuse core. I have worked in DV for over 20 years and this kind of easy exploitation irritates me. "

    " After reading five of her books, this one made me realize that maybe I need a break from her. I didn't finish reading it. I just felt like it has too much going on than I can handle. "

    " One of her better books. Usually I think the endings are diportional to the middle (so much detail in the middle and then the entire problem is wrapped up in 30 pages). "
