Wayfarers

Wayfarer: a traveller, usually on foot; a person in transit from one place to another.

Lodestone: a rock containing magnetite; floated in water, it swings to indicate true north; used by early travellers and mariners to navigate.

From parent to child, found and lost, cherished and discarded, one small piece of stone imbued with a mysterious essence will affect thousands of people from all over the world and across more than nine thousand years of history.
There are seven stories in this series, and they can be read in any order, as each story is complete within itself.
The stories are collected in Wayfarers.
