"A very interesting and heartwarming read. The short fictional stories remind me to appreciate the small things in life, and reading them brought a smile to my face. All the characters and the stories that revolve around them are unique and yet relatable. I find that kind of occurrence rare in books and kudos to the author for managing to do so."
That makes me smile.

I checked Goodreads and found this review...
"Thanks again to Goodreads for an opportunity to read a book that would likely have passed by my notice without the giveaways here.
"Sean Taylor has crafted something truly magical with this tiny little collection of stories.Vignettes narrated by voices that are gentle, wise and poetic. Sean writes from the viewpoint of a curious child as easily as he writes from the perspective of a confused elderly person mourning the loss of a loved one in all of it's jagged pain. What lies between the covers of this small, brilliant collection is truly poignant in it's vision of humans and our lives. Childhood broken bones, found braille letters from a love from the worlds past, the changes we endure in our love, growth, relationships as well as the stewardship of our own destinies...the author confronts and creates these slices of life with a reverence and respect for humanity that feels like poetry.
The simplest of truths are so often the most moving and profound. As an author, Sean Taylor reminds us of this, word after carefully chosen word. Sean Taylor is an artist and Your Smallest Bones is undoubtedly art. Masterful art that strips us all of everything that masks the truth that we are indeed small frail humans on a quite often sad and yet beautiful journey through life. I was not entertained as much as validated in my human experience as I read this.If only we could all see the lives that surround us in the way that Sean Taylor has in "Your Smallest Bones"."
And a message from the kind kind fellow that left it thanking me for writing the book. (Thank you so much Shane)
I just... I just... I need to reach these people. They are my people. They want to see life like I want to see life.
