I was reading Waymaker last night and I came across this paragraph. It spoke straight to my heart and I thought I would share it with you.

"The answers to our deepest questions never come to us in the season we deem best, nor in the respectable ways we imagine they should.

Another excerpt:

This book is the second in a trilogy of fantasy called The Pearlsong Refounding. It is about a present day man who ends up in another world where the very words spoken can destroy or heal or otherwise....Mr. Warden has quite a gift for weaving words, and his books are interesting and exciting. The cliffhanger at the end of the first book (Gideon's Dawn) left me begging for more and now it (Waymaker) is available. Click on the link to read more or to buy a book.
