Overview

Winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award, and placing in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards, Readers' Favorite Book Awards, Feathered Quill Book Awards, USA Best Book Awards, International Book Awards, National Indie Excellence Book Awards, and ForeWord Firsts debut literary competition.

Noah Hartman has it all, or so it seems. Groomed since childhood to inherit his family's fortune and business empire, the effect of living the life set down for him by two controlling parents has left Noah out of touch with his inner self. Enter Robin, who -- in direct contrast to Noah -- is a vivacious, free spirit with no material possessions to speak of. Robin's love saves Noah by inspiring him to stand up to his parents and reclaim his true identity at all costs. But Robin harbors a secret that could devastate their lives forever. Is it enough for two soul mates to find each other, or are the forces that would tear them apart too great to overcome?

Many years later, Noah lies in a hospital bed recounting his life of love and loss, only to discover a far greater truth about the past, present, and future. And the one certainty that remains unchanged in Noah's heart -- true love never dies.

Looking for the next great love story? Look no further: read SAND DOLLAR: A Story of Undying Love!

Editorial Reviews

Feathered Quill Book Reviews - Corey Bickel
In the tradition of Nicholas Sparks, whom Cole cites as his favorite author, Sand Dollar is a sentimental love story about finding and losing one's soul mate... SAND DOLLAR is a touching romance with the hopeful message that it's never too late to reconnect with a lost love, or to take a chance and follow your heart.
Bestselling author of Pandora's Temple - Jon Land
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.
Miss A - Mina De Caro
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.
Book Ideas - Celina Cuadro
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.
Hollywood producer - Marsha Oglesby
In the vein of THE NOTEBOOK and numerous other classics, SAND DOLLAR proves once again that true love never dies.

Meet the Author

Sebastian Cole never intended on being a writer. He graduated from Brown University in the 80s, then worked briefly in New York before returning to Rhode Island to work in his family’s business. Nineteen years later, he took a leap of faith and left the company to pursue his dreams, which has led him to where he is now: a novelist of romantic fiction. Cole writes from the heart, believing in true love, love at first sight, and finding that one person in life you’re meant to be with.

Sebastian Cole’s debut novel, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love, was emotionally inspired by his own personal life experiences. Sand Dollar has won numerous awards, including winning the Beverly Hills Book Award for Romance, and placing in the ForeWord Reviews Book Of The Year Awards, Readers' Favorite Book Awards, Feathered Quill Book Awards, USA Best Book Awards, International Book Awards, National Indie Excellence Book Awards, and ForeWord Firsts debut literary competition. The book has received rave reviews, many of which compare Cole to his favorite author, Nicholas Sparks, whom Cole cites as an inspiration for becoming an author. Whether or not he ever achieves that kind of success, touching the lives of others through his writing has been the single most gratifying thing he has ever done.
