The Secrets of Lost Stones
The Secrets of Lost Stones | Melissa Payne
6 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
A soul-stirring novel about the bonds between mother and child and the redemption that comes with facing the past and letting it go. Thirty-two-year-old Jess Abbot has lost everything: her job, her apartment, and--most heart-wrenching--her eight-year-old son, Chance, to a tragic accident. Haunted by memories and grief, Jess packs what's left and heads for the small mountain town of Pine Lake, where she takes a position as caregiver to an eccentric old woman. A rumored clairvoyant, Lucy is strange but welcoming and immediately intuits Jess as a "loose end" in need of closure. But Jess isn't the only guest in Lucy's large Victorian home. There's also Star, a teenage runaway with a secret too painful to share. And the little boy with heart-shaped stones, who comes with a hope for reconciliation--and a warning. Soon Jess learns that she's not the only lost soul running from the ghosts of the past. She and Star have been brought together for a reason: to be saved by the very thing that destroyed them.

This caught me off guard. This debut novel was my Amazon Prime monthly pick (I just got a new Kindle Fire, so I've just started taking advantage of that feature); I chose it because I love magical realism. I highly recommend this if you enjoy that genre. Lovely, heart-wrenching, lovable characters, & kept me guessing until the end.

⭐⭐⭐⭐✨/⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Not bad, kept me up a little past my bed time a few nights. I liked the storyline except the whole calendar and crosswords. Lucy seemed a little batty and Jess was just clueless.
