The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
(This is the latest bestseller by my favourite author, and does not disappoint) 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.
(The first person accounts about what happened in the Holocaust are absolutely harrowing)
