People of the Book (Geraldine Brooks)

If the Sarajevo Haggadah could speak, what extraordinary stories would it tell? It has traveled through countries and centuries where it has been used, threatened, and rescued by people of different cultures and religions. It now rests in the National Museum in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Geraldine Brooks has created a novel about the story of this very special book. As the Bosnian war ends in 1996, Hanna Heath, book conservator, is called in to inspect the condition of the Haggadah, which has just been recovered after spending years in an underground vault. The book is to be put back into the museum for public display. The book is physically and symbolically represents the survival and freedom of the Jewish people and the citizens of Sarajevo.
