The Wizard’s Legacy is truly a tale of real magic. A successful entertainer experiences a series of strange events which cause him to look back on his life and realize the path that he is on was not dictated by chance but was an extraordinary plan set into motion by his enigmatic uncle years ago …
13-year-old Craig Karges wants more than anything to be a magician. Craig discovers that his great-uncle, Alain “Doc” DeLyle, is a retired vaudeville mind reader now working as a psychic consultant from his home on Wheeling Island. Craig enters a period of apprenticeship, learning that stage magic is not only a means to entertain audiences, but a powerful metaphor for the magic of life. Craig discovers that nothing is impossible, if the student is willing to open his mind to unlimited possibilities.
Doc teaches Craig that magic is all around us, if we only learn to open our eyes, our minds and our hearts to life’s wonders. Each of us has the power to magically transform our lives, to become anything we want.
When Doc passes away, Craig thinks his apprenticeship is finished. However, he discovers Doc’s lessons continue even after the teacher has crossed over. Craig (and the reader) learn to appreciate mystery, magic and–most important–meaning; to treasure loved ones while they are in our lives, and to hold their memories dear after they have gone. In this way, Doc teaches, they are always with us.
