An astonishing novel about redemption and forgiveness from the “amazingly talented writer” (HuffPost) 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.

    I absolutely loved this book! It was hard to put down. Of all of Jodi’s books this is my favorite. The historical fiction and detail make you long for more information. She constantly have you on your toes asking for more.

    This is my favorite book from Picoult so far. I would encourage anyone to read it. I couldn’t put it down. It’s been a couple of years since I read it and I’m itching to reread it.

    Just having finished The Storyteller, I’m wondering if there’s another book of Jodi’s to read. I think I’ve read them all. I’ll be waiting anxiously for her next book
  • Compelling reading

    Truly enjoyed reading this compelling book. I was captivated from the begin. The story teller won’t disappoint the reader.
  • Great blending

    By SandeeLou
    Multiple stories in one. The grandmother's, the story the grandmother writes, Sage's, Leo's, and the two brothers'. 6 different voices and perspectives, 2 completely different stories all blended so carefully and masterfully to make 3 different genres: Horror/Fantasy, Historical and Modern Romantic Mystery. Page turning, engrossing and thought provoking. Absolutely loved it.
  • Not like her other books

    By Jack_466
    I expected a classic Jodi book but was disappointed. The horror of the holocaust is not what I wanted in a book from her. Very disappointed.
  • One of my favs

  • stellar read

    By far my favorite book of all time. Picoult captivates readers in a series of point of view changes and a forever changing story. This is the kind of book that when you finish, you sit back, and stare at a ceiling for 3 days. Insanely good.c
