Every once in a while you pick up a book, read the introduction and sometimes even a few shortened reviews from other authors printed inside the cover page. And still you’re left with not knowing what to expect. Although the reviews were captivating and I had seen the movie version several years ago, I recently picked up the book. I really didn’t know what to find in reading The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. What I discovered was a close to mystical experience hard to put into words. It is amazing just how much more the written word can captivate the reader’s own visualization that creates a connection to what they are reading.
Available at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, this is a book the author Ben Sherwood loved to write! How do I know this? It comes out literally on the pages! Every emotion stirs within the reader of The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud in a way that can only be experienced by reading it. This is a book you won’t want to put down!
Set in the small New England fishing town of Marblehead, Massachusetts, The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud leads you on a tale of inspiration and hope following the tragedy of two brothers. Brothers separated by death, yet bonded together through the everlasting power of love. Filled with suspense, the boundaries between physical life and the spiritual living merge into an experience the reader will be hard to forget.
Proclaimed as a “perfect miracle” by one critic, The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud will take the reader about as close as you could be to the “other side” of life without actually dying to get there! I couldn’t put it down. And you won’t be able to either! This is a rare “inspiring” read that few have been able to write the way the author has so accomplished.
Discover a beautiful and uncommon connection that leads to a race against time and a desperate choice between death and life, the past and the future, holding on and letting go.
