Caz has been granted three gifts. The pearl provides superhuman strength and recuperative ability, the Rik leaves provide unlimited mind over body dominance and memory, but the third gift alludes her. Will she discover it in time to complete the quest, or will the forces determined to stop her control the final chapter of her life? Will she be able to save the alien fanep species?
The greatest lesson you will learn is that knowledge is the what - where- and how of life, but wisdom is the why. We all need to follow Caz's compassion and selflessness in life.
“Unity is a vague term, isn’t it? What does it really mean? Can humanity ever really be united? What would it take? What would we have to give up to achieve it?”
Good questions. And we see Caz struggling here in this book more than in any other.
The Gypsy Pearl: Tie reminds me of Taran Wanderer, by Lloyd Alexander. Just as Taran explores and is shaped by the kingdom he will one day rule, so too with Caz. We see her maturing, problem solving, and though she does not know it, preparing for leadership. And along the way, she absorbs some important lessons. Like the one spoken by Nathani, an old woman who lends Caz aid:
She tapped her forehead. “Knowledge is up here, and it’s all facts and figures and skills. It’s what and where and how.” Spreading her palm across her concave chest, she said, “Wisdom includes the why. It is compassion and selflessness. If knowledge grows faster than wisdom, it ceases to breed kindness.”
This story resonates with gentle nudges of wisdom that are well balanced by Caz’s quick wit. Chose to be happy. Decide to survive. And it changes Caz. At one point her boyfriend Alf observes, “You are not a wave watcher, Caz. You are the wave.” It is Caz who drives this series. It is her growth that is so admirable and fun to watch. And it is so satisfying to see her journey reach its conclusion. Loved this series!
