Solomon Levi MacKeefer: A Gypsy with a Very Great Heart

Born into a Gypsy band, Solly’s early years are marked by tricks and misdeeds. However, he reaches a turning point and chooses to lead a better life. Now an adult, he’s bent on giving his wife and daughter a good life but tragedy strikes twice. With Solly all alone in a small town, he devotes himself to building a relationship with the youth and encouraging them to turn a new leaf. His service to his community ends in one final heroic act that comes at great cost. But this act coupled with all that Solly had taught the youth would go on to change the town of Bensons Corner forever.

Gordon Planedin’s Solomon Levi Mackeefer is a short story with a big impact. The language is simple and clear and the writing speeds you along a thought-provoking journey.

Set in North America, the book focuses on some of society’s most pressing issues. The central theme answers the question: “how do we make our world whole again?” Planedin suggests we look to the younger generation. Our only option is to help this group see the essence of life and hope that with a few exemplary adults inspiring them, they can gradually change the world.

The book’s relevant messages and the events Planedin used to deliver them kept me fairly engaged. For a short story, Solly’s character development was something that advanced quickly while remaining intricate and deep.

While I found the continuity a bit off in some areas, I don’t think this should affect your understanding of the plot. Solomon Levi Mackeefer is a small book you can get through in about thirty minutes, but the story will stay with you well after you have closed the book.
