Here comes the third book of my ongoing Gypsy Series 'a Man loves a Boy', about a retired psychotherapist who takes a severely burnt little Gypsy boy into his house, assisted by a couple of helpful neighborhood children and other young friends. Little Harry disappears in a huge zoo, I take him to an expensive skin transplant clinic to get cultivated new skin on his burnt face, another young boy shows up and immediately becomes my boy's inseparable friend, and two detached soul mates are brought together and reunited. Now, we are waiting for our 'face doctor', to give my boy a brand new face... "Some of my favorite books are ones where I can’t tell whether it's real or not. Now, I DO know that this is fiction, but because the writer has crafted such an engrossing, rich story filled with complex characters and tense emotional situations, I get so engrossed in it that it seems real! Rarely does one encounter a story that has as much personal, raw experiences embedded in it. Perhaps it is because Aad Aandacht is a retired Dutch psychotherapist, applying his lifetime of psychological and therapeutic knowledge to the creative endeavor of writing. However, do not believe that his stories are merely a case study disguised as a fictional narrative. No, the Dutch writer has employed the entire field of psychotherapy to this book, including the often neglected but equally important extra-mental phenomenal experiences. These include such things as psychic mediums, past lives, spirit helpers, karma, and the like. Magically interwoven into the narrative, these extra-mental phenomenal experiences just add to the richness of the story. Rather than your standard mystery or thriller, this emotional roller coaster entertains through the beautiful narrative creativity of the written adventure. No guns, no murders, no conspiracy theories or the like, it is simply the adventure between a man and a child who turns out to be a very special boy indeed. I highly recommend this book - not only is it perfect for people looking for a great read, but also for parents or individuals who deal on a regular basis with young adults." * I salute you sir for a most impressive story. You have a real gift for narrative. * A believable story full of love, and it's great to read. So much compassion and love... * A wonderful story, deep and proper, a masterpiece in its genre. It has brought many tears to my eyes. * Your insight is far beyond the common man, and you have put me through the emotional rollercoaster! * This is by far the best story I've ever read. You truly have a talent for writing, and your characters deeply touch my soul. * You show a deep insight into the working of the mind of the hurt and the important part that listening is of any meaningful relationship. * Your beautiful real-life stories are a MUST for everybody who is a parent, deals with troubled children, or simply loves kids.

Aad Aandacht is a retired Dutch psychotherapist, living in The Netherlands. Just like in all his beautiful 'Gypsy' stories, he was married but divorced, and he has two lovable grown-up daughters but no grandchildren to spoil. He always interweaves his entire lifetime of psychological and therapeutic knowledge into his stories, so that his readers may implement his 'lessons' in their daily lives if they wish. He still loves writing 'emotional roller coasters' and 'powerful books with a message'; and he plans to go on writing his ongoing 'Gypsy Series' for a looong time.
