Synopsis (from author's website):

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.

Page from the Sarajevo Haggadah
In Bosnia during World War II, a Muslim risks his life to protect it from the Nazis. In the hedonistic salons of fin-de-siècle Vienna, the book becomes a pawn in the struggle against the city’s rising anti-Semitism. In inquisition-era Venice, a Catholic priest saves it from burning. In Barcelona in 1492, the scribe who wrote the text sees his family destroyed by the agonies of enforced exile. And in Seville in 1480, the reason for the Haggadah’s extraordinary illuminations is finally disclosed. Hanna’s investigation unexpectedly plunges her into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalist fanatics. Her experiences will test her belief in herself and the man she has come to love.

Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is at once a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity, an ambitious, electrifying work by an acclaimed and beloved author.

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

I am officially finished with Geraldine Brooks. Because I loved Year of Wonder so much, I was sure she would again write something I would like nearly as well, but it just hasn't been the case. I was initially disappointed because it began in modern times, but I gave it a chance and was heartened when it went back in time. But I agree with another reviewer that as soon as a character's story began to grab my interest, the author would switch to another time and place. Perhaps had I cared the least bit for Hanna, I would have liked the book. I won't innumerate the reasons, but she was so unlikable it ruined the book for me. ( )

Loved the concept of little things found in the book (insect wing, hair, wine stain, etc) suggesting an interesting part of the history. Also that it was based on a true actual book. Different people in time periods of history trying to save and the last chapters were about the book being made. Best was the priest wanting to save something Jewish and the girl being the artist. Although I enjoyed the history some of it was too detailed for me. Really showed how throughout history Jews and their things were destroyed. Did not like the present day drama about her Mother disliking her career so much and her hatred of her. Accepted the forgery at the end but not her stopping her career. ( )

I was expecting more from this - a bit disappointing. ( )

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.

Descripció del llibre
Sarajevo, 1996. La conservadora de llibres Hanna Heath s'instal·la en una ciutat arrasada per les bombes per examinar l'estat en què es troba l'anomenat «Haggadà de Sarajevo», un valuosíssim còdex hebreu salvat miraculosament durant la guerra dels Balcans. Fascinada per la importància de la troballa, la Hanna decideix seguir la pista d'aquest tresor de la cultura jueva fins a esbrinar els veritables motius pels quals va ser creat, a Sevilla, a finals del segle XV.
