The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle: An Uplifting and Unforgettable Story of Love and Second Chances

We rated this book:


“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” The hopeless realm spoken of in the preceding quotation is governed by fear, which too often forces us into a life of conformity and invisibility. This is the story of such a life, which makes the hero’s break for freedom and discoveries that much more enjoyable.

The hero of the book is the title character, Albert Entwistle. Albert is a postal delivery worker who shows up to work punctually, does his work, and makes his rounds, all with the goal of not being seen. What does Albert fear and why is he in hiding? There are ghosts in his past and deep feelings of shame and regret that cripple him into being a nonentity. When Albert is faced with mandatory retirement, his life is in upheaval.

This is the time when Albert finally ventures into the scary world, which has been anathema to him for his entire life. There are always conditions in the world that cause us to be less than our true selves. This book takes us on Albert’s journey, from which we learn so much.
