    I Absolutely Loved this Story!

    I absolutely loved this story! Fans of KM Weiland will be glad to know that Wayfarer is just as well written as any of her other books. I have been a longtime reader of Weiland's site Helping Writers Become Authors, and I use her book Structuring Your Novel religiously every time I prepare to write a new book of my own. As I read Wayfarer, it was delightful to see how she followed her own writing rules (right down to the midpoint at exactly the 50% mark on my Kindle!). Not that the story came across as formulaic, or anything like that. No, it's just a great story, full of vivid settings, characters so real I felt as though I knew them personally, and delightful surprises (along with some not-so-delightful ones). I enjoyed the authentic period dialog and picked up some new vocabulary along the way. Now I really want a sequel!

    Loved it.

    Wayfarer begins with Will as a young apprentice seeking to rid his master of debt. He's heart-warming, if not a bit foolish at times. While trying to find better paying work, he stumbles across men who believed "the plague" was real. Gossip about unusually gifted or changed people who lived through miracles, it seemed. But Will denies that it exists...until he falls deeper into adventure than he ever dreamed. Adventure called Dr. Silas and Mr. Fitzroy. Will's family died in the workhouse because his master only managed to save one, Will Hardy. He has plans and goals, but by the end of the book his life has taken on a new purpose and vision, even if it takes a whole adventure to refresh his mind. Will learns that sometimes people beneath your level in life can provide sweet friendship, and sometimes people above his station can give him vision and greater goals. And there are evil people in all ranks of life. I love Will's relationship with Tom. Because Will grew up with no parents or siblings, Tom was his family and did his best to provide for Will like a father, while also training his apprentice. Indeed it was a task at times and would soon become more overwhelming than Tom probably imagined. Will's friendship with Rose teaches him to care for another in the way he would a younger sister. His protectiveness and Rose's independent ways creates an amusing bond at times. In Will's relationship with Mr. Fitzroy and Mr. Monarch, Will learns how people can be taken advantage of, what loss is, and how at the end of all things your social rank means nothing except that you treat all as equal in God's eyes. Will unintentionally takes on the qualities of Spiderman (with a few limitations ;), and though charged with murder, he matures into a wiser young man and a good friend and brother. I love the friendship themes throughout this book and the sacrifices made and the character growth of Will were encouraging to read.
