Book: The Recluse Storyteller by Mark W. Sassecategories: Book, Mystery, Suspense, Vietnam, Historical, Contemporary, Religious, Literary Fiction
Mark W. Sasseabout this book: "The Recluse Storyteller" is a puzzle, like the protagonist herself - Margaret - who has lived alone in her apartment for years, peering at the neighbors and devising wildly imaginative stories about their seemingly mundane lives.
But this storyteller, being a recluse, has no one to listen to her stories, so she tells them out into the stale air of her apartment.
But after Margaret slams her front door on the finger of nosy neighbor, Mrs. Trumble, the storylines of the lives of her neighbors and the fictitious ramblings of a seemingly crazy recluse come crashing together in unexpected ways. From this point on, everyone who has come in contact with Margaret will never be the same.
"The Recluse Storyteller" will take you to a war-torn ridge in Vietnam, to mid-18th century hill where a strange apparition appears to a small girl, and to bank being held up by a smug villain who always seems to be one step ahead of the police. But most of all, "The Recluse Storyteller" will take you on an emotional journey you are not soon to forget.
A Note from the Author: "The Recluse Storyteller" can be a little bit of a challenge to read - at first - because Margaret is telling four stories while the fifth story is about the recluse herself. But what I love about it is that all five stories start crashing down upon each other, intertwining themselves in unexpected ways. I hope you'll find the ride to be a thrilling as I did."
