Video Series: The Pearls of the Stone Man Pt. 5

Today, I want to introduce you to a novel by, Edward Mooney Jr., called The Pearls of the Stone Man. I'm going to do this one a little bit differently. There are five video's based on the novel and the town it is written about, Pine Mountain, California. I will be posting one video every Saturday. When we have completed the video series, I will post my review of the novel and have a giveaway for three copies of the book provided by the publisher.

Here is a summary of the book, courtesy of :

A Promise made.
A Love that will Last Forever.

If you've ever loved someone to the depth of your being, someone who for one reason or other needed to move on, you know the power of a parting wish. The story of Joseph and Anne, his wife of fifty-three years, is the story of just such a wish-one that only true love could try to achieve. And for Joseph the strength to build the stone wall-a special reminder from Anne's childhood-will take him places he never expected and that you will never forget.

The Pearls of the Stone Man takes us beyond generations and our own stone walls to the very humanity that unites us all-and shows us the incredible power of one couple's love to last beyond parting and forever change the lives of those they touched.

"Mooney writes such a compelling story that it must be read word for word all the way to the end."

"It's a very gentle tale, but it has an extraordinary power."

I'm anxiously waiting your final review on this story. The blurb makes it sound like a rather poignant read and that is something I'd love to read =)
