The Game of Shepherd and Dawse is an alternative look at the evolution of humanity. It offers a unique perspective into why some people seem full of love, while others seem weighted down with darkness, why some are bullies and others are bullied, why some people work as hard they can and why others prefer a more idle existence. The Game of Shepherd and Dawse offers a different perspective on where we came from and also where humanity is headed.Charlie Clark is the 8-year-old close neighbour, and unsuspecting student, of Mr Joe Sadsoul. Joe is a friend to Charlie but also a father figure and grandfather rolled into one. Joe teaches Charlie many things over their short time together, but the day Charlie really starts to evolve is the day Joe shares a story about a place and time called Shepherd Wood.Shepherd Wood is a bygone era where everyone lives a more peaceful, gentle and harmonious way of life, a place of utopia and unimagined tranquillity where everyone is at peace with themselves and with their surroundings, a place where the power of love flows freely. Aman is the beautiful daughter of Sasha and Aiesha, who live in Shepherd Wood in harmony with the rest of their community. Little does Aman know that events soon to unfold in her life will change and shape the whole of humanity. Little does Charlie know, the events soon to unfold in Shepherd Wood would mirror events unfolding in his own life – events he would come to know as The Game of Shepherd and Dawse.Much like The Alchemist or The Celestine Prophecy, The Game of Shepherd and Dawse can be read on many levels by a wide variety of readers, each taking away the lessons appropriate for them. The Game of Shepherd and Dawse includes elements of humour and wit, suspense, insight, wisdom and personal transformation – all told with fable-like simplicity.Dear Readers: If you enjoy reading this book as much as we did writing it, please leave us a review, in order to help others find and enjoy this book too.
