Jodi Picoult always writes about a particular social issue and “The Storyteller” is no exception. Sage Singer, a young woman from a Jewish family, befriends a 95 year old German man. He only reveals his past to Sage after asking her to forgive him and then to kill him for his sins. When she discovers how his story connects with her beloved grandmother’s story she is sent on a path of discovery to determine if she can forgive something so evil and if many years of good behavior can redeem one’s sins. This is a powerfully thoughtful look at these questions and definitely worth reading.
