Beloved best­selling author Mitch Albom returns with a pow­er­ful nov­el that moves from a coastal Greek city dur­ing WWII, to Amer­i­ca, where the inter­twined lives of three Holo­caust sur­vivors are for­ev­er changed by the per­ils of decep­tion and the grace of redemp­tion. A mov­ing para­ble that explores hon­esty, sur­vival, revenge and devo­tion, The Lit­tle Liar is Albom at his very best. Nar­rat­ed by the voice of Truth itself, it is a time­less sto­ry about the harm we inflict with our deceits, and the pow­er of love to ulti­mate­ly redeem us.
