RjCook’s passion for story telling is more than apparent in this very successful collection of short stories that span time, various places, varied individuals in varied plights, hints of paranormal, history revisited, encounters with animals, the power of classical music on orchestra, conductor and audience, family tales that induce painful memories, miracles and more.
The seven stories included – Glint, Dream Lover, Ben Franklin’s Dream, The Mayor’s Cow, The Maestro’s Gift, Tracks in the Snow, and The Messiah of Harriman.
The eloquence of prose is evident in each story, despite the them: for example “Glint’ opens with ‘I can't get my mind to stop, can't get my thoughts to shut up even for a moment. Seems I'm in a cranial war with myself, battling the depression that is trying so earnestly to get over the wall I've built inside. When you've fought as long and as hard as I have there is no considering surrendering. It's all or nothing. If and when I lose it, it will be total, complete.’
This is fine storytelling that completely absorbs the reader with each tale. The variety of stories is rich: the quality of writing is superb. Grady Harp, November 16
I have not read any of his other work before but thoroughly enjoyed seven short stories in this book.
In Glint, the young man has no choice but to hitchhike home to escape from the murderous deed he has committed. As usual things don't go as planned.
Dream Lover, is the second tale and covers supernatural events, history and the paranormal when the main character spends a night in a manor.
The other five books are equally well written and keep the reader engrossed from the beginning. There is plenty of variety and eloquently written.
I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery and intrigue. Each book is easily read in one sitting.
The prose is one thing that particularly stands out here. You can tell, the author’s voice is up there with some of the greatest authors of and before our time. The writing was both soothing and awakening and I felt like I was being told a story, rather than reading a book as I made my way through each of the stories.
I’ll admit, Glint did end up snagging a favored spot on my list because the story spoke volumes for karma, destiny and today’s society. However, I’d recommend reading each story twice, just to get the full magic of this author’s writing.
