The Cabinet of Wonders 3. Louey

Louey plays the fool but he is no fool. It will take someone very special to see this and help him understand his own mind, but who will that be? There is no one around who can reach him.

Back in the twelfth century there lived a musical genius, rebel and renowned priestess, but even the best of us begin our lives as children. If only the two could meet…

This is the third in a series of unusual, thoughtful books about the mysterious cabinet that changes lives.

What you can hear but cannot see,
What you can feel that cannot be,
What you can sense but cannot touch,
What’s out of reach, but not by much.
This is what I am, and more,
If you can fathom what I’m for.
