Have you ever wished you had the power to find lost things or people? A
special group of guildsmen, the Wayfinders, in the city of G’il Rim possess
such a gift. Young Winchal Eldras is an apprentice Wayfinder, who
is quickly making his way to becoming a full fledge Wayfinder when tragedy
strikes. During a very foggy night, known as the f’giz, he is forced
to find his sister. However, he arrives too late and watches as she
falls into the deadly rift that surrounds the city. Shunned by his
fellow Wayfinders and filled with guilt, Win begins to doubt his own abilities
as a finder.
Yet just when he is about to give up, tragedy strikes his village.
Threatened by the Plague that is racing through the Heartland, the village
must send a Wayfinder to find the mysterious “Well of Life” on the other
side of the rift. Chosen by the Prince of the Heartland, Win is forced
to face his deepest fears as he begins the journey of his life. It
is up to him to save his home and the Heartland, despite the doubts of
the other Wayfinders. Will he overcome his fears and succeed?
Or will he follow his sister’s fate and be defeated by the rift?
Join Win as he races to find the healing waters beyond the dangerous rift
to save his home. Read The Wayfinder by Darcy Pattison. (Sandra
