About the Book

A life lived in earnest provides one with a moral compass upon which to gauge the parameters of one’s inner journey, the source of any lasting fulfillment. Wayfarers gives evidence of the epic miles one may travel when morality transcends the dead-end of mindless dogma and becomes, instead, a conduit to personal happiness. John Johnson, linguist A Scribendi critique Hello Mr. Cook, I read your engaging novel and thoroughly enjoyed it. I found it difficult to put away in the evenings. It was a pleasure to read with its vivid details presented in wonderfully lush descriptive passages. By focusing specifically on a handful of characters, you manage to ensure that the story is not too bogged down in historical details, which could be distracting. The book is well-organized and obviously well thought out. The plot, which is excellent, flows organically from one event to the next, toward the natural conclusion. It’s especially interesting how Daniel and Jerry’s lives parallel each other throughout the book. The dialogue is so well done. You do an excellent job of capturing the nuances of the characters’ speech and their accents. Additionally, you do well at making the dialogue realistic to the characters. For the most part, it seems that each character would naturally say whatever it is you have written for them. Very nicely done! Mr. Cook: I’m the person at WritersLiterary responsible for reviewing your manuscript. I just finished -- and feel compelled to tell you that I think you have a SUPERB writing style, and I love your prose. Russell (Brooklyn, NY)
