The Novel: “The Story Teller”

I am reading an incredible novel now called The Story Teller. It is set in a small town in New Hampshire today. A Jewish woman working at a bakery befriends a German man over 90 years old. He seems to be kindly. He is a popular man in the small town. As she gets to know the man better, he confesses who he really is. He admits that he was a former SS officer ho was involved in the killing of many Jewish people during the Holocaust. We come face to face with a monster and our definitions of evil. The book is so good that I cannot put it down. This is a great read for everyone.

I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
