I found this book to be a pleasant surprise, given that it's basically about the history of a specific 15th Century Haggadah. A beautifully illustrated Jewish book was saved from potential destruction during the fighting in Sarajevo in the late 1990's. The history of this rare and valuable Jewish book is told looking backwards in time from a book restorer's interpretations of clues discovered during a restoration. The book conservator takes us back in time walking us through the books many travels and its history up through the present time. The author presents the story in a creative way, discovering a little clue today while restoring the book, and then taking us back in time telling the story of the individuals involved leading up to the clue being a part of the present manuscript. Geraldine Brooks covers periods over five centuries of European history, as well as representatives of the three great religions, but told in story fashion. Her unique approach made the story much more interesting than a straightforward scientific examination of the evidence would have been. ( )

In 1996, Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, is offered the job of a lifetime: analysis and conservation of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, which has been rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian war. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewish volumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna, a caustic loner with a passion for her work, discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding—an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair—she begins to unlock the book’s mysteries. The reader is ushered into an exquisitely detailed and atmospheric past, tracing the book’s journey from its salvation back to its creation. review from Amazon

This book follows the story of an exceptional historic books through the centuries. I loved the substories from the past that explained how the book survived and was created. ( )

What an incredible book! As soon as I finished it, I wanted to re-read it to see how she accomplished such a feat. ( )

While peering through a microscope at a rime of salt crystals on the manuscript of the Haggadah, Hanna reflects that “the gold beaters, the stone grinders, the scribes, the binders” are “the people I feel most comfortable with. Sometimes in the quiet these people speak to me.” Though the reader’s sense of Hanna’s relationship with the Haggadah rarely deepens to such a level, Geraldine Brooks’s certainly has.
 
Brooks' novel meticulously, lovingly amalgamates mystery and history with the personal story of its heroine, rare-book expert and conservator Hanna Heath.
 
If Brooks becomes the new patron saint of booksellers, she deserves it. The stories of the Sarajevo Haggadah, both factual and fictional, are stirring testaments to the people of many faiths who risked all to save this priceless work.

The words stuck to his tongue like...the ashes that had fallen in a warm rain after the last book burning.
I wanted to give a sense of the people of the book, the different hands that had made it, used it, protected it.  I wanted it to be a gripping narrative, even suspenseful.
