I finished reading "The Storyteller" by Jodi Picoult on my way to San Francisco. This is one of those books that will stick with you for a long time. It's so easy get consumed in the story and start developing a relationship with the characters. The story begins with a baker (Sage) who befriends Josef Weber (a camp supervisor at Auschwitz) and later reveals a startling connection with a lady named Minka (Sage's grandmother) who survives Auschwitz and tells the horrors she endured during the Holocaust.
“If you've lived through it, you already know there are no words that will ever come close to describing it, and if you didn't - you will never understand.”
