The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

Sage Singer bakes all night by herself.  She enjoys her solitary job because she doesn’t like being around people.  A scar on her face makes her self-conscious.  As Josef Weber from her grief support group starts dropping by the bakery she slowly lets down her guard and begins to enjoy his company.  Then Josef confesses he was a Nazi guard at a concentration camp and needs her to do something for him.  Her world is turned upside down as she discovers her history and is forced to confront evil and forgiveness.  This well-researched novel is sure to leave you with a different perspective on right and wrong.  Be sure to add bestelling author (and queen of the ethical dilemma and twist of an ending) Jodi Picoult's newest novel, The Storyteller, to your spring reading list!
