    Gastien - Book 1

    Enthralling reading! Can be somewhat "riskee and succinct" if you're not ready for it but beyond that a captivating read. Can wait to read Book 2!

    Gastien!

    Gastien: The Cost of the Dream by Caddy Rowland is a touching coming-of-age story that grabs hold from the start. A mesmerizing tale of a young man wanting to leave his family farm to become an artist in France. A beautifully told story that was as vivid as a moving film, as I could see the story unfold before my eyes. The author has the rare ability to show a story that comes to life right off the pages. I was glued to these pages and it was hard to think of anything else but Gastien and his adventures. And many of these adventures were a shock to me which made it that much more desirable. This Gastien had a passion and nothing was going to get in his way. Quote ~ Knowing you are good looking is a very heady thing, especially for an eighteen-year-old boy about to become a man. It is sometimes said - usually by people that have never been good looking - that looks are not as important as other traits because they fade. Not so. Looks are as great of an asset as any other. Fair or not, being extremely good looking can open many doors. You just need to be savvy enough to knock. Gastien learned quickly to use those looks, especially those huge eyes, to knock.
