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

For seventy years, Josef Weber has been hiding in plain sight. He is a pillar of his local community. He is also a murderer.

 

 

When Josef decides to confess, it is to Sage Singer, a young woman who trusts him as her friend. What she hears shatters everything she thought she knew and believed. As Sage uncovers the truth from the darkest horrors of war, she must follow a twisting trail between terror and mercy, betrayal and forgiveness, love - and revenge.
