Book Review

A book to take to bed. Easy reading short stories and Medieval Prose that will lift you up and then allow you to sleep restfully.

Eerie Stillness and Other Short Stories” is a collection of short stories authored by Sir Peter James Dotcome.

The reader is offered some 140 pages of short stories of differing genre. Interspersed between the short stories are few Medieval Prose/Poems. The ethos of the book is that of encouragement. In a world climate of depression and anxiety, where media, for the most part, are pouring out volumes of negativity, if there is one commodity we cannot get enough of, it’s encouragement.

Eerie Stillness is undemanding and easy to read. Absolutely ideal to curl up in bed and soak up a few stories before you drift off to sleep. The stories and poems will clear your stressed mind from the day’s labors and give rest that you so need.
