Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An astonishing novel about redemption and forgiveness from the "amazingly talented writer" (Huffington Post) and #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult.

Sage Singer is a baker. She works through the night, preparing the day's breads and pastries, trying to escape a reality of loneliness, bad memories, and the shadow of her mother's death. When Josef Weber, an elderly man in Sage's grief support group, begins stopping by the bakery, they strike up an unlikely friendship despite their differences.

Everything changes on the day that Josef confesses a long-buried and shameful secret--one that nobody else in town would ever suspect--and asks Sage for an extraordinary favor. If she says yes, she faces not only moral repercussions, but potentially legal ones as well. With her own identity suddenly challenged and a special friendship compromised, Sage begins to question the assumptions she's made about her life and her family. When does a moral choice become a moral imperative? Where does one draw the line between punishment and justice, forgiveness and mercy?

In this riveting and deeply felt novel, Jodi Picoult explores the lengths we will go to protect our families and keep the past from dictating the future.

Synopsis:

#1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense Harlan Coben delivers his most shocking thriller yet, proving that a well-placed lie can help build a wonderful life-- and a secret has the same explosive power to destroy it.

 

The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.

 

Adam Price has a lot to lose: a comfortable marriage to a beautiful woman, two wonderful sons, and all the trappings of the American Dream: a big house, a good job, a seemingly perfect life.

 

Then he runs into the Stranger. When he learns a devastating secret about his wife, Corinne, he confronts her, and the mirage of perfection disappears as if it never existed at all. Soon Adam finds himself tangled in something far darker than even Corinnes deception, and realizes that if he doesnt make exactly the right moves, the conspiracy hes stumbled into will not only ruin lives—it will end them.
