Thomas Thoreaux, the village hermit whom his boyhood testimony sent to prison, is to be knighted for classified services in World War II, but has refused the honor and title. Jeremy’s editor sends him back to his hometown in Ohio to unravel the mystery of the man he’s never forgiven himself for betraying.

Saving Thomas by Scott Kauffman Description Following the loss of his wife and child, Jeremy Michaels buries himself in his job reporting on the seedy and shady underbelly of 1970’s Portland, Oregon, until a Buckingham Palace announcement shatters his cocoon.

Can the power of forgiveness heal even the deepest of wounds? Written with wit and wonder, SAVING THOMAS weaves history with mystery and is an exciting new novel not to be missed. Saving Thomas is a good read.. I received it as an arc to review. .In the book, there is Jeremy Michaels a reporter, and there is Thomas Thoreaux the village hermit. There is plenty of history and mystery. Humor is found as well. Such a good book Scot Kaufman has weaved. I would definitely set aside plenty of time to read Saving Thomas.

This is a mystery set in the 1970's with ties back to WWII. The main character is a reporter who is working to uncover why an old man he testified against and sent to prison, is set to be knighted, but is refusing the title. The book is also a bit of a thriller as the main character races to unravel the mystery of why the old man is refusing knighthood. I found the story to lag a little bit at times, but overall it kept me engaged.
