The Rose in the Eye of the Storyteller
“There once was, and yet there was not,
a young prince called Moondegar,
whose story I shall now tell…”
Thus begins the story of Moondegar who, despite his stammer, discovers that he has a great gift for telling stories of beauty and enchantment. Charmed and beguiled by his stories, Princess Khadijah falls in love with him. But just as they seem on the verge of happiness together, their lives and destinies are changed irrevocably.
Set in the world of the Thousand and One Nights, this young adult novel is a search for Truth and Beauty through the medium of creativity and storytelling. As his adventure unfolds, he travels at first by horse, then boat and on foot, telling stories and making friends as well as enemies, wherever he goes. Through his creative sub-conscious more and more of what he is looking for is revealed to him, but it also leads to many questions:
Who is the mysterious character that appears in his tales?
Does he have a message for Moondegar?
Where will it take him?
What must he find?
Who is in control?
