this is a short story about a man who makes some serious mistakes as a young adult, then spends the rest of his life trying to make up for his misdeads through his good works, and through his determination he teaches others to forgive and do good as well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book tells a story of vengeance and redemption with a strong moral overlay that is beneficial to the reader. Whether this is legend or based on a true story, one can read and reread this tale and glean a feeling of warmth and satisfaction from the tale. My older grandchildren love to have it read aloud to them which is a wonderful time to bond with them. You won't be disappointed.
