    1. High praise indeed from me for the second book in Pears s West Country Trilogy It is a novel of stark contrasts as the story alternates between Leo and Charlotte in the years between 1912 and 1915.At 13 Leo is headed alone towards his mother s birthplace, Penzance without giving any spoilers from the first book As he passes through the Bodmin and Dartmoor areas he lives with a family of gypsies, works on at what remains of an abandoned tin mine it was the time when the workforce moved north to t [...]


    2. The Wanderers by Tim Pears is rather an interesting book The title suits the story perfectly and you yourself feel that you have become a part of the book When you start with the book, all the scenes start scrolling like a movie in front of your eyes The entire scenic beauty has been described very minutely, one can literally picture the story in which Leo scrounges work, learn some skills, makes a few friends, and is robbed of his magical horse.From taming any wildlife to rural practices, every [...]

    5. This style of writing is something that is very new to me and something that I have encountered for the very first time I had a mixed feeling about this book Though this book is the 2nd part in the trilogy I didn t feel that I was missing out on anything when I haven t read book one.The book as I understood has been told from two people s point of view One is that of Leo who travels with the gypsies and the other is that of Lottie s who is intellectually fascinated.Thought I have to give it to t [...]
