Rarely do 55 pages tell a story provocative enough to cause the reader to examine her own life. FELLOWSHIP OF THE FORGOTTEN does this and more.
Author Glenn Hascall has written an unforgettable story about the second greatest commandment, and through seven special characters, illustrates how to love others as we love ourselves.
Meet Hal, a 50-something, wannabe writer, who decides to go undercover on his vacation to observe and write about the lives of people whom society has forgotten
*A self-imposed homeless man
*A harmonica-playing comedian
*A sidekick who is wicked with hair clippers
*A physically scarred woman who isolates herself
*A young woman jailed for injuring someone while driving drunk
*A very young misfit girl who is ignored by everyone
During Hal's working vacation, he meets all of these people, and in doing so, he discovers his own true purpose in life.
Be prepared to laugh and weep, as well as long for the simplest of lifestyles, where going home, whether it be in Heaven or on earth, is anticipated with joy.
Readers will recognize themselves, each in a different way, and they will leave the last page of the book feeling both humbled and enlightened.
I wanted the book to go on, reluctant to leave the lives of these characters. Maybe Hascall will grace us with a sequel in which readers can learn about the continued futures of these forgotten souls, and meet more along the way.
I hope to see more from Glenn A. Hascall. If this short, simple story can strike such a resounding chord in my heart, then I'm confident his plain truths, coupled with fully-drawn characters, will also linger in the souls of readers to come.
