The Tapestry of Spirit, written by Erik Paul Rocklin, is an allegorical tale of a young boy on a spiritual journey. It is the story of a young boy who is looking for answers.
A boy keeps having a dream, one that puzzles him. He has always been afraid to share it with anyone except his mother, who is now dead, for fear of being scorned and branded as a heretic. The boy's dream is so powerful that it summons an old man to guide him on a journey to meet with the mysterious, powerful figure known as the Mage. This guide tells the boy that he has come to help him understand his dream.
On his journey, the boy encounters many different people. Some of these people, the boy helps. Some of them have the power to help the boy on his journey. But some of them have been sent to hinder his journey, to cause him to turn back, give up, and go home. These various encounters show the boy that he can set free those who need it, that he can give hope to those who are grieving, and that he even has the power to restore relationships that have been broken.
Along the way and through what the boy encounters, his guide also explains to him just what the Tapestry of Spirit and his Destiny Thread are. The boy's understanding of these won't be complete until he reaches his journey's end.
Allegorical tales are not my favorite kind of story to read. There just doesn't seem to be enough action or thrills to keep one interested in many of them, but The Tapestry of Spirit was engrossing and well-written. This was not one of my favorite books, but only because I prefer more action-filled novels. If you are a fan of allegorical tales, you would enjoy this book. If you are a fan of tales about one on a spiritual journey, I highly recommend this book to you.
