Critical Praise

"SAND DOLLAR is one of those rare books that makes you feel, laugh and cry all at the same time. This smashing debut by Sebastian Cole reads like the best of Nicholas Sparks with just enough schmaltz. Moving and emotive, it’s every bit THE NOTEBOOK."
    — Jon Land, bestselling author of STRONG AT THE BREAK

"In the vein of THE NOTEBOOK and numerous other classics, SAND DOLLAR proves once again that true love never dies."
    — Marsha Oglesby, Hollywood producer

"SAND DOLLAR is a strong pick for general fiction and romance collections, highly recommended."
    — Midwest Book Review

"Keep a tissue box close by while reading this evocative novel.SAND DOLLAR, a novel utterly heart-wrenching in its tragedy and absolutely gratifying in its resolution, won’t leave your soul and your eyes dry."
    — Miss A

"So to the hopeless romantics out there I say, Highly Recommended --- have at it, this is a must-read. To the snarling cynics like me who mentally have their arms akimbo and their eyebrow raised, I say pick up SAND DOLLAR: A Story of Undying Love and surprise yourself by discovering the romantic in you."

"Sebastian Cole has written a thought provoking and intriguing story in SAND DOLLAR… once the story hooked me, I could not put it down. I will say one thing, I did not see the ending of this one coming, and it brought tears to my eyes."
    — Long and Short Reviews

"When I was told that this was the next great love story I was cynical, but it is totally true. Noah and Robin’s story is the greatest love story I have ever read. This is a story that will touch you to the depth of your heart."
    — A Novel Review

"This is a must read for anyone who loves pure romance. Get tissues and something to drink because you will need both."
    — Let’s Talk Romance Reviews

"SAND DOLLAR: A Story of Undying Loveis Sebastian Cole’s debut novel, but I think he will have a long list of best sellers if he keeps going at this rate. Cole twists and turns this plot (which is why I couldn’t put it down) to where you can’t assume anything about the ending. You HAVE to read it. It will renew your faith in finding and keeping that one true love."
    — Kate Patrick

"There are very few books which will touch the very depths of your soul. This is truly one of those books. This is one of those stories I’m going to cherish forever."

"I’m trying to remember if there ever was a book like SAND DOLLAR that I read and as soon as I was done with it [I’m talking mere seconds after] that I just wanted to shout to the world and beg people to get it ASAP."
