    Question left us to wonder

    What he had done really left us wondering about his real purpose.

    Is it also right to say "... really left us to wonder about his real purpose."? Thanks!

    '...left us wondering' is more natural.

    Left us to wonder could mean that he left us so that he could wonder about his real purpose.
