Sage Singer has a past that makes her want to hide from the world. Sleeping by day and working in a bakery by night, she kneads her emotion into the beautiful bread she bakes.

But when she strikes up an unlikely friendship with Josef Weber, a quiet man old enough to be her grandfather, and respected pillar of the community, she feels that finally, she may have found someone she can open up to.

Until Josef tells her the evil secret he's kept for sixty years.

Caught between Josef's search for redemption and her shattered illusions, Sage turns to her family history and her own life for answers. As she uncovers the truth from the darkest horrors of war, she must follow a twisting trail between betrayal and forgiveness, love and revenge. And ask herself the most difficult question she has ever faced – can murder ever be justice? Or mercy?

I do like a good read and bought this book for my Kindle as I had most of the other books (albeit paperback) from this author. This was tackling a very harrowing topic though, the Holocaust which we learned a lot about but in school it was clearly taught in a less disturbing manner than the details covered in this book. A work of fiction but definitely covering the truth, an uncomfortable truth at that.

Jodi Picoult touches your feelings again and makes you think about everything you have just read

Wonderful book as most of Jodi Picoult books. It is a story about Sage, bakery worker who meets an old Former Ss officer. Her grandmother was Holocaust survivor and Sage wanted to find a way to punish Reiner, former SS officer who was A guard in Aushwitz. Sage found an FBI officer specialising in this kind of cases and both of them tried to find out as much as possible from Minka, Sage’s granmother, an Auchwitz victim. This book tells so many cruel things, this story is very touching, sad, Horrifying. It is hard to read at times. And you are. Little bit different person when you finish reading this book. It touches a little bit of Sense of appreciation deep inside you. It really touches you and your feelings. I catched myself just sitting and thinking for few moments after finished this book.

Excellent storytelling

Judy Picoult certainly excels at storytelling in part2 of this novel – here Minka tells the heartbreaking story of her life in ghettos and nazi extermination camps for Jews. But she adds ‘If you lived through it you already know that there are no words that could even come close to describing it.’ It was so well written I found it emotionally stressful to read, and cried at the end of Minka’s story. She says ‘Sometimes all it takes to become a human being again is someone who can see you that way, no matter how you present on the surface’, which makes you realise that the Jews were treated so inhumanly that they appeared to forget they were human.

Hard hitting & real

It is not unusual to find it hard to put down a book by Jodi Picoult. she has a turn of writing that makes a story come alive and out of all her books this is most evident in her latest – the storyteller!!

Three stories in one

Amazing story of two lives, a grand daughter and her grandmother. And another more gruesome story, which is told by the grandmother. They all connect, and come together in a modern day holocaust story. A difficult read, particularly if you are a Jew. But worth the trauma eventually. The story revolves around human tragedy and forgiveness.

Incredible Read.

The book came in great condition as expected, and within the stated delivery time. It came unmarked, uncreased and in great condition. Packaging was secure and sensible. The book itself is an incredible read! The author delivered an incredibly emotionally rewarding journey with her characters, and her research and how she spoke personally to victims and survivors of the holocaust shows beautifully through her work. If you are on the edge about whether or not to buy this book then please do! It truly is incredible.

My sister recommended I download this book and what a book it is – beautifully written, amazingly moving and heartbreaking without being a book that makes you shudder. I found myself living the era, I found myself in tears and I still am thinking about all I read and I finished the book a week ago. A book that everyone should read because the insight it gives shouldn’t be forgotten. A class book with depth and meaning. Awesome!!

Wow – I couldn’t put this down!

This is a wonderful, thought-provoking book set around the horrific events of the Holocaust. The book is beautifully written, switching from past to present. You can’t help but get swept up in the “story” of the title and also the drama of the book. The main characters are well thought out and you are keen to know more about them from the first few chapters. The horrors of the concentration camps will make you weep and the treatment of the Jewish people is very upsetting, but don’t let that put you off as this is well-worth reading.

My expectations were probably too high

I had heard great things of Jodi Piccoult so my expectations were probably too high. The story of the Nazi concentration camps was horrific but absorbing, but I didn’t find the modern day story that captivating.
