Long-time B-Fit member, George Tymitz has just become a published historical fiction author.
The following is a synopsis of his book.
Key Number 17: A Ukrainian Grandfather’s Odyssey of Courage.
Can an old, burnished metal key show a young man the way to courage, and can that same key provide redemption for a strong, but troubled grandfather haunted by misdeeds in pre-Revolutionary Ukraine of 1905?
When 78-year-old Olek Creshenko visits his grandson in the hospital after the teen was brutally beaten by another boy, a spark ignites in Olek, and he vows to teach the boy the meaning of courage. But Olek must go back in time in order to help his grandson move forward. He must come to terms with his cryptic and traumatic past in Ukraine before he emigrated to the US under a shroud of secrecy. This epic journey of a grandfather and his grandson spans generations and continents as the two develop trust, build a friendship, and put their bravery to work in an unbelievable final act.
By helping his grandson, will Olek find redemption for his own misuse of his strength so many years ago in Ukraine?
Key Number 17 explores the weight of secrets, the power of family, and the transcendence of courage.
