Synopsis

Sage Singer is a young woman who has been damaged by her past. Her solitary night work as a baker allows her to hide from the world and focus her creative energies on the beautiful bread she bakes.Yet she finds herself striking up an unlikely friendship. Josef Weber is a quiet, grandfatherly man, well respected in the community; everyone's favourite retired teacher and Little League coach.One day he asks Sage for a favour: to kill him. Shocked, Sage refuses.Then Josef tells her that he deserves to die - and why.What do you do when evil lives next door? Can someone who's committed horrendous acts ever truly redeem themselves? Is forgiveness yours to offer if you aren't the person who was wronged? And most of all - if Sage even considers his request - would it be murder, or justice?#80 in Australia's Top 100'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.'  Booklist'The first person accounts about what happened in the Holocaust are absolutely harrowing ... there are descriptive passages that make you catch your breath.'  Sunday Express 'Jodi Picoult's new book will leave you thinking about its story for a long time ... it is an emotional and compelling tale.'  Sun 'If you think you know Jodi Picoult, her latest novel will make you think again ... a powerful and unexpected climax.'  Good Housekeeping 'Another great read.'  Cosmopolitan
