Delbert Mason has it all - or so it seems. His career is a success, and he is an important man in his small town. His future is mapped out. He knows just where he's going.
Until the night he strolls home late and sees a hearse and a limousine pull into the local cemetery. Who were those strange men by the hearse, and whose grave was that being dug nearby?
What does Pearl Hewitt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This short story is beautifully narrated by Pearl Hewitt. I found it very relaxing to listen to her soft, yet exquisitely executed tones as she reads this story about the rise to power of businessman Delbert Mason. A man on a mission, hardworking, determined and enjoying the best of life whilst he climbs the career ladder. The world is his oyster and he’s a man set to succeed.
In life, though, it is good to remember the Yiddish saying, ‘Man plans and God laughs.’
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed the story, and its twist, however, I have to admit I was slightly disappointed by the ending.
