Only 1 book in December.
I went for something different this time, still WW2 but not a romance.
Sage Singer has a past that makes her want to hide from the world. Sleeping by day and working in a bakery by night, she kneads her emotion into the beautiful bread she bakes.
But when she strikes up an unlikely friendship with Josef Weber, a quiet man old enough to be her grandfather, and respected pillar of the community, she feels that finally, she may have found someone she can open up to.
Until Josef tells her the evil secret he's kept for sixty years.
Caught between Josef's search for redemption and her shattered illusions, Sage turns to her family history and her own life for answers. As she uncovers the truth from the darkest horrors of war, she must follow a twisting trail between betrayal and forgiveness, love and revenge. And ask herself the most difficult question she has ever faced - can murder ever be justice? Or mercy?
I've read lots of books about the holocaust & I had heard this was pretty bad but I still wanted to give it a go. At times I found it hard to continue but I wanted to know what happened at the end.
I really enjoyed it, if you can say that about such a book!
I have 2 boxes of books to read at work which at this rate will last me 2 years!!
I need to pull my finger out this year.
