Three paths to the same destiny

by GinniferBrown567 (WorldCat user published 2020-05-28) Very Good Permalink

Wow! I Liked so much this book! Incredible since three paths will take you to the same destination. And very interesting that David only wanted to find fame with his poems that in the end were not as good as he thought and this led to his death on all three roads.
