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.
