The Wanderers

The Wanderers by Tim Pears is the second volume the West Country trilogy that began with The Horseman. Leo is now wandering with a band of gypsies who have literally rescued him from the side of the road. They are a much-maligned group in England but they become his family. Pears perfectly conjures rural English life with his descriptions. Leo’s first love is left behind on the estate he is banished from and the big question of whether they will find each other is the heart of the novel. It’s a journey well worth taking.
