Publisher Comments:

Following the phenomenal success of My Sister's Keeper and Second Glance, beloved best-selling author Jodi Picoult is back with another page-turning novel about the power of memories--and the sharing of their secrets. Vanishing Acts introduces readers to Delia Hopkins, a young woman who seems indeed to have led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her windowed father Andrew, she finds fulfillment in her work, in which she uses Search and Rescue blood-hounds to find missing persons. In addition, she now has a small daughter and is on the threshold of marrying her handsome fiance. However, as Delia starts to plan her wedding, she finds that she is plagued by flashbacks to a time that she can't recall. What are these flashbacks, and what do they mean? In shock and confused, Delia must search out the truth among these newly discovered memories--even when they threaten to devastate her life, and the lives of those she loves most. Gripping and absorbing in every way, Vanishing Acts is a story that explores what happens when a past we have been running from catches up with us--and what happens when the memory we thought had vanished returns as a threat.

Synopsis:

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 fiance, 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 under-standing, insight, and compassion.

Synopsis:

The "New York Times" bestselling author of "My Sister's Keeper" now brings listeners the gripping, absorbing, and shocking story of a woman caught between a past she cannot recall and the life she cannot live without it. Unabridged. 12 CDs.
