A different kind of Love Story. The Stillness of Winter is the story of Samuel who returns home to discover that the love of his life had taken herself out of the equation they had strived to become, leaving only a hastily scribbled note. It is the story of Marlys who manages Samuel through the days and months after his abandonment and who for her own reasons keeps him emotionally afloat when his own personal demons threaten to drag him desperately into darkness. It is the story of Julia, who returns intending to provide closure, but instead presents Samuel with ideas and concepts about love that he struggles to understand. The Stillness of Winter is a love story that grabs you by the heartstrings and tugs on them until you give in to the randomness that is learning to love someone you thought you knew better than yourself. Its about keeping secrets that are better shared when love is new out of fear, and friendship that is there to keep those dark at bay when it is threatened.
Hello and welcome to The Review Board. Today we bring you an inside look at “The Stillness of Winter” by Mr. Vincent Watson via the thoughts of Mini Truth.
“The Stillness of Winter” is an interesting story, but could be better. Today, I’ll be very direct on my thoughts about this book. First let’s start with the premise.
Samuel is a man in love whose heart has just been shattered by the object of his affection, Julia. The entire first half of the story is a combination of memories that Samuel is having of Julia, along with current events which involves his best friend Marlys.
The author very intricately spells out the string of events that eventually contributes to Samuel’s current melancholy.
The second half of the book focuses on the subsequent happenings which includes Marlys, Samuel and their relationship with each other. Also, eventually Julia pops up again.
This is all I’m going to say as I do not want to spoil the story for potential readers. I would like to say that potential readers might be pleased at the unexpected twist that is thrown in the story that no one sees coming.
With that said I’ll go into the Pros and Cons.
When looking “The Stillness of Winter” up, I came across this …
I REALLY hope that is a typo. I would NEVER pay for a book the equivalent of two months worth of rent! I’m just saying.
With all of this being said, I give “The Stillness of Winter” a grand total of 6.5 TRB Stars which will translate into 3 stars on other platforms.
