Tales of Good and Evil, Help and Harm focuses on the same themes by examining the lives of three unlikely heroes. Returning to the story of Chambon, Hallie first looks at Major Julius Schamling, the SS officer who, despite his somewhat ambiguous moral background, allowed the villagers to do their rescue work. Next comes the riveting account of Joshua James, the nineteenth-century founder of the Life Saving Rescue Service, who regularly risked his life to save survivors of ships foundering off the New England coast. The final section profiles Hallie's own neighbor, Katchen Coley, who started a halfway house in Connecticut. Written with grace and passion, these tales of good and evil shed surprising light on our capacity for greatness, and will resonate in the hearts and minds of readers long after the last word is read.
This is a beautiful book, written with what might be called disciplined moral passion.... Hallie has thought deeply about why the majority of us are morally passive, and he has some provocative things to say about the origins of such inclinations". -- Kirkus Reviews (starred)
