An excellent tale by a master storyteller. Don't be the least put off by the religious overtones to this book. As an atheist, I normally avoid stories involving faith, but Mr. Porretto's statements of faith and belief enrich the story, they do not detract. It would be a shame to miss the depth and richness of this tale simply because his faith establishes the underpinnings of the book. I will read it again and again over the years, as I have other stories he has written.
He sells them too cheaply for the wealth of enjoyment they provide.
