I found this short story to be very intriguing. Sully is a young man who is mute and he lives with his father, the gardener, on an estate. The owner of the estate has two daughters, Selah and Isobel. One is beautiful and the obviously favored child, while the other is just ordinary. Sully is devoted to, and fancies himself in love with, Isobel and she is about to get married. What happens next you will have to read to find out.
I found the relationships in this story especially compelling. In a short space, the author has created a great deal of complexity among the main characters. I was also surprised by the ending which I think the author kept expertly hidden until the final page. If you’re in the mood for something short, I highly recommend this story. Also, this one is available for free right now on Kindle – see the link below.
