A new story of common wisdom from the best-selling author of The Travelerâs Gift.
Orange Beach, Alabama, is a simple town filled with simple people.Â But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problemsâmarriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses.
Fortunately, when things look the darkest, a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up.Â An elderly man with white hair, of indiscriminate age and race, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and leather flip flops carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul.Â Communicating what he calls âa little perspective,âÂ heÂ explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things that others miss.Â âYour time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely,â he says.Â âDonât squander your words or your thoughts. Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measureâ¦and they matter forever.â
Jones speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what we can do about it.
Like The Travelerâs Gift, The Noticer is a unique narrative blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration in which gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a ânoticerâ just might change a personâs life forever.
