Publisher's Summary

A contemporary novel about a baby boy abandoned near the Miccosukee Reservation in the Florida Everglades west of Miami. The surrounding community of Native American neighbors adopt and raise the young John Doe as their own, and when they realize that John has the ability to come and go with such stealth that his communal family members seldom notice, he is given the surname Ghostwalker.
John Ghostwalker is a kindhearted and precocious young man, a superior student, and a socially peculiar human being. He has an almost obsessive need for a secret sanctuary where he can find respite from a world he sometimes finds quite overwhelming as he follows his dream to become an accomplished architect.
The Ghostwalker File is, first and foremost, a book about self-discovery and the importance of community, but it is also a love story that may restore your belief in soul mates.

We should all have some 'ghostwalker' in us

Any additional comments?

This is a story about a boy, his position in the world, and the connectedness of it all.

Ghostwalker was a person but his spirit took center stage in this listen. You had to appreciate his "circle of life" mentality and his desire to care for things, big and small. I really enjoyed getting to know this character and his world.

The narrator was perfect. Ghostwalker did not speak a lot so when he did, the narration made you take notice.

I don't know if this listen is for everyone but I definitely enjoyed it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story!

If you're reading this review you're wondering why I like the story so much. I would have to say it is because the main character always lived true to himself. And, I loved the way the community that had adopted him loves and cares for him so unconditionally. It Illustrated so well the uncomplicated life that some people live and how simple we could all live. the story was kind of a feel-good story even though they go through hardship and struggles. It's really nice to have one of those once in awhile.

The underlying message being that the most important thing is loving others and doing everything we can to care for one another even though we live in a society that is built upon a certain level of conformity as to what everybody else thinks is a normal life . I thought the story did a very good job of showing how the charitable mindset can allow normal citizens to make a big change in the needs of society. Government programs can not do this. They can provide shelter and give away food, they can give away just enough money for them to be dependent on them, but they can never restore a person to their true potential.

I requested this free review version of this audiobook in exchange for this honest and unbiased review.
