Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things, My Sister’s Keeper, and House Rules comes an astonishing and complex novel that proves some stories live forever.

Mourning the passing of her mother, Sage Singer decides to attend a grief support group. She doesn’t expect to start an unlikely friendship with an elderly man also attending. Josef Weber is a beloved, retired teacher and Little League coach. Together they attempt to heal.

But one day he asks Sage for a favor: to kill him. Shocked, Sage refuses but then he confesses his darkest and long-buried secret, one that irrevocably changes Sage’s worldview. She suddenly finds herself facing questions she never expected, such as what do you do when evil lives next door? Can someone who’s committed a truly heinous act ever atone for it with subsequent good behavior? Should you offer forgiveness to someone if you aren’t the party who was wronged? And most of all, if Sage even considers his request, is it murder or justice? The Storyteller explores these issues and more in this “profound and moving novel about secrets, lies, and how the power of stories can change the course of history” (Shelf Awareness).

    From Becrrr
    This book had me captivated so much so that I ended up baking my own challah bread for the first time so that I could imagine what minka was talking about. It is truly sad that there are people out there that don't believe this could have happened. Great book and sad that I've finished it

    A very thought provoking book by Jodi Picoult I have read all her books and found this one was painful due to her subject, I am old enough to remember WW11 and this was such a terrible nightmare for so many innocent people that a stark reminder should happen for those who do not remember. Well written but awful to remember.
  • She does it again!

    From Paul Lymer
    Jodi Picoult writes another spellbinder book. One that you cannot put down. She weaves in and out of characters and stories within stories. Make some tea, bake some bread and curl up with this one.
  • Perhaps her best yet!
