“The Storyteller”

Currently the book we are reading is “The Storyteller” written by Jodi Picoult. This is book of fiction about a woman named Sage, her life and a chance encounter with an elderly man, Josef Weber in her grief support group that they both attend. As they become closer and he confesses a buried, shameful secret, Sage begins to question her life.
These questions come into the picture: “When does a moral choice become a moral imperative? And where does one draw the line between punishment and justice, forgiveness and mercy? It is definitely a good read and will get you thinking.
