The Local Bookseller

The door was ajar, and an inviting sign suggested that our next books were inside. It was a small shop, but it had books of all sorts. Often you don't find anything of interest, but here many books begged to be opened, jackets read, and choices made. I chose "The Templars" by Dan Jones. When the bookseller saw my choice, she smiled. 'Do you like the Templars?' Well, it turns out for the last five years, she and her husband have gone to southern France, and bought a 12th century manor house and out buildings (slate rooves, stone walls). They regularly go to the Templars' sites nearby, that is, caves, castles, and sites that have writings, histories, and so forth on a fairly well-defined Templars path in that area! They live there part time, and they live in Oxford part time. They rent out their manor in the off-season for $650/week. She and her husband are so interested in the Templars in part due to her fathers connection and membership in the Masonic Temple in America. The Masons have deep roots, and the Templars history is somehow connected. She was fascinating! She showed us a brief book of photos of their place in southern France. Oh my!
