Well-paced, the story unfolds like a movie, moving from scene to scene. Each vignette provides a glimpse into a facet of Carole’s enlightenment process. Together the glimpses form a look. The looks become episodes. And the episodes comprise the narrative – the narrative of one woman’s life.
Thus it’s safe to say Twelve Stones is a truly literary memoir in the grand tradition of such memoirs. For a memoir is a report of what happened based on special information, information that can only be supplied by someone who participated in the events being recorded. And it’s the ‘special information’ – and the manner in which it is presented – that infuses any memoir with uniqueness.
Twelve Stones is the unique, distinctive, and remarkable story of one woman’s pilgrimage to faith. And the miracles – both small and large – that got her there.
Twelve Stones is highly recommended.
