Silent Answers: A Collection of Short Stories by Sebastian Costard
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A book of short stories is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. Sebastian Costard's Silent Answers is a box of chocolates. I didn't read Costard's stories in the order you see here; I chose them randomly. It doesn't matter; each one was a new experience. I read The Triangle first and felt like a voyeur when a quirky woman entered the story and the life of a stressed attorney. Costard's twists and turns brought Kate Chopin's tales to mind. A story of coming to terms with death and lost friendships in Costard's Sarah's Folly might feel way too familiar for some readers. But the sweetness in this story gives hope to all who have gone through this kind of suffering. In his stories I traveled from France to Latvia to London to China to California to South Carolina and Georgia, Florida, and farther. It's a pleasure to read of places I've visited - or may never visit - and feel as though I were there. Costard has done the traveling for all of us and became steeped in the varied cultures. And because of his writing, I became engulfed in those same cultures as I immersed myself in each story. It's not only the traveling that drew me in. Each character was totally different from others I met throughout the book. Obviously Costard observes and understands human nature. Real people, real problems, but not so real solutions. Just like a box of chocolates, I never knew what I was going to get, but I knew from the first story I would be entertained. The next best thing to being entertained? Learning something. Hostile takeovers, Jewish religious holidays, American Indian history, French wine, Chinese culture, the goodness of caring neighbors - this and more I found inSebastian Costard's Silent Answers. Forrest Gump, your momma was a wise woman. Susan Polonus Mucha Author of Deadly Deception
