The Gentleman who whirls into town and ultimately ends up being the catalyst for change for Noah and everyone he meets from that moment on represents a concept more than an individual.
I have found that in my life there have been these mystery people who have impacted my life so heavily and yet I will NEVER know their name, where they came from or where they are headed.
Sometimes the people who have the greatest impact on our lives spend the least amount of time in it.
For Noah, The Book Store Gentleman is one of those important individuals that flutter in and out of his life, changing it forever. Noah may never see him again or learn anything else about him…but this Gentleman will eternally hold a place of honour and appreciation in Noah’s mind.
