Wonderfully complex. Compellingly passionate

on 5/24/2012

I loved this story. It was my "Waiting Room Comfort" during a month of medical appointments--the specialist kind of appointment--where the waiting lasts for hours. The inner workings of the human mind have always intrigued me. Throw in a bit of romance, an exotic local, and INTERPOL--and I'm captured. A great story that shows both understanding of, and compassion for, the tortured human soul. I found the ending especially powerful. Great characters, a wending plot, vivid scenes. WAITING FOR COLUMBUS is a wonderful tale, expertly delivered.

Product Overview

On a beautiful April morning, a man is brought to an insane asylum in contemporary Spain, claiming to be the legendary navigator Christopher Columbus. Found in the treacherous Straight of Gibraltar, he is clearly delusional and has suffered a trauma so severe that he has turned away from reality. As he spins the tall tales of adventure and romance of someone who existed in the late fifteenth century, the lonely Nurse Consuela can''t help but be enchanted by his spirit. Who is Columbus? Where did he come from? This dazzling story about one man''s painstaking search for truth and loyalty will haunt the reader long after the final page.
