Intolerance, the second book in the continuing saga of An Angel’s Tale, is a story addressing the social abomination of child predators. A three-year old child is on the television, her sexual assault taped and repeatedly shown on the news, prompting Sam and Andrea to help the victims of such horrible crimes. They plan a benefit to raise money for abducted children and their families. Henny Madison, the wealthiest man in Manhattan, wants to help. Henny is a gay man who has spent twenty years hiding from society because of self-inflicted shame and Marsha Kingsley’s blackmail. He has his reasons for wanting to help his daughter’s boss, Andrea. His wealth will finance the gala event. Marsha Kingsley is a witch and the mother of one of Sam’s students. She schemes with her coven to ruin the event and shame Henny publically when she learns he will come out of social isolation to attend the benefit. This story invites the reader into a mystical and spiritual tale. Henny’s prison of secrecy has to be broken at the risk of hurting his only child, Anne. Marsha has enjoyed torturing and blackmailing Henny by threatening to tell Anne that her father is gay. Marsha spreads evil wherever she goes, prompted by her demon, Bella, making her a strong evil force determined to win Satan’s approval. Marsha is poised and ready to destroy everyone who wants to help Sam and Andrea. Sara Kingsley knows her mother is a witch and feels helpless, suspecting her mother has killed her father, and that she may kill again for her half of her father’s estate. This is a twisted tale of greed, murder, bigotry, and child abuse. It invites the reader into a suspenseful, exciting, and thought provoking story.
