LoveReading View on The Storyteller

A strong tale of an unlikely friendship between a young woman and an old man. He has a secret that is so dark he does finally want to end his life. This author is first-rate and here tackles perhaps her most difficult of issues so far … the Holocaust. Full of different stories which intertwine, twists which leave you stunned and an unexpected climax, this is a must read.

Sarah Broadhurst

The Storyteller Synopsis

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? Want to see your name in the next Jodi Picoult novel THE STORYTELLER?
