ABOUT THE BOOK (from the book cover)

At the age of sixteen, Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. Hours after her parents were killed, Nazi officer Dr. Josef Mengele, forced Edie to dance for his amusement and her survival. Edie was pulled from a pile of corpses when the American troops liberated the camps in 1945.

Edie spent decades struggling with flashbacks and survivor’s guilt, determined to stay silent and hide from the past. Thirty-five years after the war ended, she returned to Auschwitz and was finally able to fully heal and forgive the one person she’d been unable to forgive—herself.

Edie weaves her remarkable personal journey with the moving stories of those she has helped heal. She explores how we can be imprisoned in our own minds and shows us how to find the key to freedom. The Choice is a life-changing book that will provide hope and comfort to generations of readers.


The Sage Sisters Book Club discusses a self-development book on the 1st Thursday and the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Two date options provide a greater opportunity for everyone to attend; choose the date that suits you best.

The Book Club is open to everyone and is designed to help women* start and continue down a path of discovery, learning, and growth with other positive women. As a community, we find that continually exposing ourselves to new ideas and perspectives is a necessary component and the secret ingredient to growth and self-development. We encourage you to come with an open mind; read the books that you believe will help you discover, learn, and grow; and share your personal experiences in a safe and supportive space.

The books are selected in a variety of ways and suggestions are always welcome. We have read and discussed concepts and practices around mindset, being our best selves, relationships, happiness, spirituality, our purpose, and achieving our goals. To see what we have read in the book club to date, visit

Whether you’ve read the book each month or not, you are welcome to attend the discussion.
