Publisher Description

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

Some stories live forever . . .

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, they see in each other the hidden scars that others can’t.

Everything changes on the day that Josef confesses a long-buried and shame­ful secret and asks Sage for an extraordinary favor. If she says yes, she faces not only moral repercussions, but potentially legal ones as well. With the integrity of the closest friend she’s ever had clouded, Sage begins to question the assumptions and expectations she’s made about her life and her family. In this searingly honest novel, Jodi Picoult gracefully explores the lengths to which we will go in order to keep the past from dictating the future.

The Storyteller

One of her best! I would like to see a movie version of this.

Incredible book

I have just completed or inhaled Jodi's latest novel. There isn't a dull moment with this fast pace thriller of a novel. She has created something beautiful from a time in history that was incredibly ugly and unfair. Her prose was excellent as she weaves various stories within the novel. Even of if you can guess the ending, you won't. I hope Jodi is able to bring back Leo. I totally adored him. Also her description of the holocaust through Minka's character was so incredible that you would assume she was a fly on the wall. Brilliant!

Loved it!

This book captured me entirely. If a character was hungry I was that is how deep this book takes you. Enjoy.
