The Storytellerby Jodi Picoult
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Picoult is no stranger to tackling difficult issues. Her latest page-turner confronts the oft-explored subject of the Holocaust with skill, starkness, and tremendous sensitivity. The characters' stories are compelling, but the stellar storyteller here is Picoult, who braids the quartet of intersecting tales into a powerful allegory of loss, forgiveness, and the ultimate humanity of us all. Her myriad fans are in for satisfying doses of everything they've come to expect from her: compulsive readability, impeccable research, and a gut-wrenching Aha! of an ending." Library Journal
"A baker enlists a Nazi hunter to entrap a nonagenarian who may have brutalized her grandmother in Picoult's ambitious latest....A fictional testament as horrifying as it is suspenseful." Kirkus Reviews
