People of the Book hooked me at the beginning and never let go.  A literary suspense novel with a bit of romance and a lot of culture: the reader follows the restoration of an ancient Jewish Haggadah found in modern day Sarajevo after the conflict (Bosnia/Serb).  Hanna the book restorer finds traces of the book's many lifetimes - from 15th century Spain to 19th century Vienna to 20th (Sarajevo) and she uncovers the mysterious life of this sacred text and the lives of those who handled the book.
