None of the inhabitants of Panwestia (North and South) could ever have imagined that the torn pages of a book, swept up by the wind, would end up sweeping up the fortunes of many of them. Pages that blew into the lives of children and grownups and, in a magical way, talked about their lives and made them see the future. But not everyone was ready to acknowledge the truth that these sheets of paper revealed to them; a truth which would lead them to a new reality. Most ignored it, while others fought it tooth and nail. And yet it was so simple to just follow it… as long as one surrendered to the charm of that particular page that the wind blew into his or her hands. And that truth would answer all of that person’s questions.
A novel bursting with action and suspense, proving that reading is an exciting journey, a great adventure we all must experience.
