Book review: Forever Sunshine by Cary Allen Stone

Forever Sunshine by Cary Allen Stone is a short story featured in the collection Mother’s _pPYKaF5Day Magic: …with Love.

The anthology was written by a collection of number one, and best selling authors focusing on romance or loving memories. Mr Stone approached me and asked if I would be willing to do a quick review for his contribution to the anthology.

Whilst not my normal reading genres a change is as good as a rest, and this was certainly a pallet cleanser. I found the writing style very immersive. The dialogue is well scripted, and throughout the story we learn more about not only the main characters featured, a brother and sister Charley and Janey, but about their mother who had died the year before.

Throughout tale you learn about the mother’s life, as well as the life of her children and their loved ones. It really is a beautiful story with a touching ending. I can’t really say much more without spoiling what proves to be a wonderful read.

The characters are well developed, and although this is a short story, I did not feel it in any way lacking. Often I find in short stories the author will sacrifice deepening the character in favour of the event being weaved, but this tale possessed the perfect balance, clearing showing the author’s talent for their craft.
