Breaking Tradition

I have always been a sucker for a love story. Even better if there are some historical aspects to it which call to far away places or some tense time during history's dark pages.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho has to be one of my favorite books of all time. It tells the tale of a young boy who goes in search of his dreams and the adventure he encounters along the way. He meets colorful characters, wanders off to far away lands and opens his heart to love for the first time.

Through the haze of despair, things can become more evident, if only through the deep well of emotion we are experiencing.
