In this intimate arrangement of emotive short stories, Juliet Castle presents provocative thoughts that challenge the reader’s perspective. Collectively, the stories reveal a deeper understanding of life initially veiled from view. Juliet’s stories portray how the mystery of life is attempting to reach you deep within. They compel the reader to wonder. What is it you are incessantly experiencing through your life’s encounters? What are the forces at work? Who is your Silent Partner? Juliet attempts to reveal the answers to these questions by encouraging the reader to step forward and to see the forces acting behind life’s play. The Silent Partner is a creative literary work that contains many short stories with varying content, context, and style, as well as artistically drawn images. Each of the short stories is intended to lead towards a discovery and has the underlying theme of ‘the Silent Partner’ to connect the individual story to the collection as a whole. Inspired by Shakespeare, the storybooks of Aesop’s Fables, and the Brother’s Grimm, The Silent Partner and Other Stories of Truth plays on words and uses symbolism with poetic placement and style that lends itself towards an enjoyable, yet provoking read. It could be placed alongside Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, and Paul Coelho in the category of Spirituality.
