About the Book

The Green Mountain near Nuremberg, Pennsylvania, attracts both hunters and lovers with its magnetic pull. But when it provides a sanctuary for a stranger with a dubious history, the village and the lives of its residents are inexorably altered forever.

After the short man arrives and begins a home restoration, he gains the attention of curious locals who engage in wild speculation regarding his identity and reasons for moving to Nuremberg. Determined to convince the stranger to adopt their ways, two of the village’s female residents embark on a fact-finding mission that leads them to pronouncements that pale in comparison to the truth. But when one of the women finally receives a glimpse of truth about the stranger, she must now decide whether to shun the potential risk and act on her affection as everyone else wonders whether the lure of Green Mountain or divine intervention will determine their future.

The Short Man of Nuremberg shares the tale of Pennsylvania villagers’ persistent quest to learn the truth about their new resident with a mysterious past.
