Readers of all ages will enjoy reading Story Tellers: In Pursuit of Happiness, by Thomas Jerome Baker. It is an inspirational story, because it is a true reflection of reality. You see this reality through the eyes of the Storyteller, his wife Lanisha, and their son, David. The book brings together fantasy and fiction, wizard and witch, redemption and religion, mysticism and myth, magic,,,and monsters too.

Why? How? To tell a never ending story about human relationships. We meet a man and his wife, a father and his son, a mother and her son, a family just like any other family. It is a family in pursuit of happiness, just like your family and my family. The plot is delicious, intriguing and satisfying because it tries to explain things that are not explainable. The Storyteller uses riddles and enigmas as a storytelling device to help the boy remember the stories told by the father. There are many problems that must be faced. The son must go on a dangerous journey all alone. The characters have secrets, nobody knows everything about each other, so trust and faith become themes that run throughout the book.

The story shows you how when everything is good, it is easy to show your love. It is difficult to show your love when bad things happen, when the people we love and trust, respect and look up to, a father, a mother, a friend, a son, is not everything that he or she seems to be. What do we do when we get disappointed? Do we stop loving one another, or do we forgive and forget? Is that possible? Can things ever be the same again when someone you love tells a lie, tricks you, deceives you, cheats on you? How do you solve that problem when it happens to you?

The answer to that question in this book will surprise you, make you think about the quality of your relationships, and inspire you to be a better person in your relationships with your friends, and your family. After all, it is never too late to be good. We must never forget that the past has no power over the present moment…
