Shadows of Brierley - The Wanderer by Anita Stansfield
When Ian awakes from a drunken stupor in a deserted London alley, he is thankful to be alive. “Dear God,” he says aloud. “Help me.” Ian wanders near a crowd and hears words of hope that draw him forward. Ian lingers after the crowd disperses and talks with the preachers. “Might I purchase a copy of your book?” he enquires. His purchase is made quickly and Ian stuffs the book with his other few belongings. Filled with a longing to return home, to make right the wrongs of the past, he spends the last of his funds for the passage by coach.
This is a story of forgiveness, love, redemption and starting over. When Ian is making positive steps, more challenges surface and the struggles increase.
The Wanderer is the first book in the Shadows of Brierley Series. I can’t wait to read the rest!
