The Savant - a novel
What would you do if you could predict future events? Enjoy The SAVANT, a compelling and fun story that follows the journey of a boy with a unique form of ‘savant syndrome.’
Because of his autism, a twelve-year-old boy is kept out of school and lives on a farm with his grandfather and uncle. Then, one day he falls out of an oak tree and everything changes. He suddenly perceives the world in a different way, where spoken words appear as vibrant colors and minute details emerge from everything. Most surprising, he can foresee outcomes, for instance, knowing which horse will win in a race.
He considers what to do with this extraordinary ability, and that takes him on an expedition across America and eventually to Europe. Along the way, he encounters intimidating foes, and ultimately, he makes a startling discovery leading him to face his greatest adversary.
Follow the journey of this fascinating young person who lacks social skills and doesn’t experience emotions in a normal way. At the same time, he has profound insights about the world, as he attempts to find out who he is, and the basis of his identity. The book is also a captivating spiritual journey, as the boy struggles to fathom the meaning of love, and the reasons why things are good or bad. He even uses his prophetic abilities to understand where history is going and its ultimate end.
