Roxi Reviews

Roxi Wilkinson has graciously agreed to share some of her recent reads with us. The following review is part of an ongoing series of guest posts written by Roxi:

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult is an unforgettable novel that will live forever.  

Sage Singer is a modern day gifted baker working the night shift by choice. Making pastries and breads helps her escape the bad memories of her Mother’s death, or so she tells herself.

One day Joseph Weber, an elderly gentleman, stops in for coffee and turns her world upside-down. Though it is a very slow upside-down, Joseph sees in Sage the hidden scars of a haunted life much like his own. In searing honesty Joseph shares his hidden shame to his new best friend, Sage, and asks her for an extraordinary favor. Sage confronts the moral and ethical side of the lengths we will go to in order to protect our families and to keep history from repeating itself.

Jodi Picoult writes with precision, beauty and brutal honesty. This work of art far exceeds any other novel I have read in recent years.
