Wonderful story!

(5 stars)

I simply type "Simon Evers" in the Search Box and settle down to listen to the next offering on the list. Some books simply fade away in my memory. The Beloved Vagabond did not. A unique, complex, gifted character saves a penniless boy, recognizes his gifts and changes his life. Mr. Evers has done a perfect job of offering books previously unknown to me that I find captivating. Although they are often fantastical, the quality of the writing, the clever plots and the engaging characters cast a spell and I am hooked! Bravo Mr. Evers. What a generous gift to us all!

This novel is a delightful break from the current strife filled media, and I want to marry the reader just so he can read the grocery list to me, he is wonderful

A Perfectly Wrapped Gift.

Hey! This is a find. Imagine Sommerset Dickens taking a walk down W. Collins ST. With that dash of mystery in the middle, even the appearently palsied hunchback Blanchette, didnt drive me away. Especially reccomended for young people, or the young at heart and anyome who feels out of place in this world. Oh yes, and the reader is absolutely magnifique.

Wonderful...!
