A few of the folks at the office told me about this novel, and I'm taking pleasure in it.
It's called The Alchemist by a writer named Paulo Coelho. Apparently it's well known due to the fact it's sold over two million copies around the world,
Paulo Coelho's story tells a magical story of an Andalusian shepherd youth named Santiago. The boy desires to travel searching for an extravagant worldly treasure, and that is his driving dream.
But the story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way demonstrates us much more about the important wisdom of paying attention to our hearts, and understanding to choose our own help and advice from the signs and signals strewn along life's journey, and following our dreams.
