In the Twilight Saga, in which book does Edward leave Bella, and why?

I heard that he leaves for a time and then Bella goes all crazy and pretty much insane. I was just wondering when this happens and why.

It is in book 2, "New Dawn," that Edward decides that he and Bella should not see each other. The Cullen family throw a party to celebrate Bella's 18th birthday, and as she often does, Bella has an accident. This time, the accident almost costs her her life, and Edward decides it is just too dangerous for a human and a vampire to try to have a romantic relationship. During their time apart, Bella grows attached to Jacob Black and learns more about the world of the supernatural.

I don't want to give too much away, but the story does have a happy ending.

Edward Leaves Bella in New Moon. During a party they were having for Bella's birthday she got a paper cut which sent Jasper into a frenzy must kill Bella mode and Edward into super protective mode. This got Edward into thinking that maybe his family and himself probably wasn't the best place for Bella so he leaves her thinking she'll be safe without him around.

Edward leaves Bella in New Moon because he believes that if he is near her he will cause her pain and it will become dangerous to her. Because of that he leaves her but instead Bella just tries to kill herself just so she can see Edward.
