The BookViral Review:

An absorbing fictional tale with biographical undertones, ‘From the Sea Come Seashells,’ is the heart-wrenching story of Steven, who finds himself reunited with his Grandfather after years in care. What follows is a bitter-sweet journey of discovery for both Steven and his grandfather, Henry.

Larry Hobson’s impeccably constructed dialogue creates a spotlight which focuses his reader’s attention on the intricacies of domestic dynamics, as a damaged and ruptured family gradually comes back together and heals. The growth in closeness between the young Steven and mature Henry is beautifully but simply conveyed, as Henry becomes a steadfast rock to the boy and Steven blossoms into a mature young man.

Hobson’s commentary brings Cambria and the Pacific Ocean to life, not with overly descriptive tirades, but rather with an understated and gentle delivery which pulls his audience into a world of salty air, nestled amongst mountains to the east and a rocky shoreline, lending an authentic element to his writing. His even pace and relaxed delivery allow the reader to savour each incident and encounter, which echoes the unhurried nature of Henry, as he begins to win the trust of his young charge.

A cleverly extended twist creates a roller coaster of emotion, as events turn from joy to devastation and loss, only to be surprisingly reinvented in a world where accepted truths are challenged and where Henry fights for his grandson’s future in unexpected ways which reach far back into the past and towards the future.

With a last burst of intrigue and tension, Hobson keeps his reader’s attention to the very last page, where we see a grieving family right the wrongs of the past and move into the future with integrity and hope.

A firmly recommended relaxing read.
