The Trinket Box - John Kaden
Unusual for me to pick up a short story by an unknown author (to me) and to say...wao what a great read! Milton's mind is losing it's battle with dimentia and he lives out his final days thinking of his beloved wife June who died some 5 years ago. When Milton finds an old cigar box behind a dresser the contents will lead him on a journey that will have a catastrophic conclusion. I think the author did a wonderful job of exploring the mindset of Milton taking the reader with him as he leaves the comfort of his home in search of answers...and what he finds makes a shocking and brilliant little story...well done Mr Kaden I look forward to sharing more of your adventures :))
