About the Author:

Paulo Coelho, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, is one of the bestselling and most influential authors in the world. The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries, Brida, Veronika Decides to Die, Eleven Minutes, The Zahir, The Witch of Portobello, The Winner Stands Alone, Aleph, Manuscript Found in Accra, and Adultery, among others, have sold over 175 million copies worldwide, and The Alchemist has been on the New York Times bestseller list for over 360 weeks.

Paulo Coelho has been a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters since 2002, and in 2007, he was appointed United Nations Messenger of Peace. He is also the most followed author on social media.

From AudioFile:

Even before listening, an especially beautiful package in peaceful and harmonious shades of soft coral and delicate sand casts a spell on the listener. Then, Jamie Glover's elegantly restrained and deeply felt narration achieves an understated and unforgettable listening experience. The plot is an intriguing puzzle: A man searches for a beloved wife who has mysteriously vanished with a mutual friend. The protagonist subsequently embarks on a journey to find her and, most importantly, to understand what made her leave him without notice and without apparent reason. Moving and meaningful as a story, this work, for some listeners, may also result in a significant search for their own selves, as well.
