Best-seller Picoult takes on a heavy subject in her latest outing: the Holocaust. At 25, Sage Singer is scarred, both physically and mentally, by the car accident that took her mother’s life. A baker who works at night in a New Hampshire shop run by a former nun, Sage shuns almost all human contact, save for her coworkers and her funeral-director boyfriend, Adam, who is married to another woman. Sage ventures out of her comfort zone to befriend Josef Weber, an elderly retired teacher, who throws her world into chaos when he tells her that he’s a former SS officer and asks her to help him end his life. Sage, whose grandmother Minka survived the Holocaust, reaches out to the Department of Justice and is connected with Leo Stein, a charismatic attorney and Nazi hunter. Leo travels to New Hampshire to investigate Sage’s claims, which leads them to Minka, who shares a surprising connection to Josef. Based on extensive research, this is a powerful and riveting, sometimes gut-wrenching, read, in which the always compelling Picoult brings a fresh perspective to an oft-explored topic. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Picoult will tour widely with this bold moral inquiry, connecting with book clubs and making television, radio, and online appearances. --Kristine Huntley --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

There are several stories going on here, which in true Picoult fashion, are tied together eventually. The one part of the story that I did not particularly enjoy was a novel that was being written by one of the main characters in the "first person" and involved vampires. I am not a fan of vampires, fantasy, gargoyles, or ghoulish characters. One doesn't realize that this is a novel when it is first introduced either. As one reads on however, you find that there is a purpose to this "novel" within this novel, which made it understandable and easier to accept. The ending left some loose ends for me and seemed rather abrupt, but I so enjoyed the development of all the characters. There are actually four major characters and a couple of supporting ones, as well. Each one of them captivating, especially Minka, the grandmother who lived through the holocaust. I don't know how I missed this in 2013 as I have read all of her books. This did not disappoint. 4.75 stars from me. The research alone is staggering. This is one I will not easily forget. Loved it!
