Book Description

April 1 2000 Goldstone Trilogy (Book 3)

I got the goldstone at a time when I needed something special. I wore it for years, never thinking it was more than a beautiful pendant and a link to the past. Later I learned the the goldstone is also a link to the future. Wear it at night, and you'll see what lies ahead.

With these words, Aunt Jo gives Ashley the beautiful goldstone necklace that has been in their family for nearly a century. Ashley is immediately enchanted by the magic of the stone, and can hardly wait to dream on it to see what her future holds.

But fate has brought Ashley much more than the goldstone. When she wears her gift, a presence deep within the glacial mountains is awakened. A boy named Jonathan, who has transcended the bounds of time, begins to stalk her nights--and days. He, too, dreams of the future and has foreseen the moment when he can reclaim the stone. But he know that he can only do so once Ashley has joined him in the space between life and death.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-9-This title completes Lawson's trilogy begun in Goldstone (1998) and continued in Turns on a Dime (1999, both Stoddart). When Ashley's famous mystery-writing Aunt Jo sends her the family goldstone necklace for a birthday present, Ashley is thrilled. She is especially intrigued when she discovers that if she sleeps while wearing the heirloom, she dreams of the future. Usually the dreams are vague and trivial, shady faraway images, but one of them is singularly disturbing. It is of a boy with long black hair and worn winter clothes whom she sees not only in her dreams, but disappearing in and out of real life. The tension builds as the dreams grow more frightening. Finally, an avalanche brings her face to face with the boy ghost who has lingered through death and time to recover the goldstone and return its magic to the mountain where it was crafted. While the plot moves quickly and the suspense will hold the most reluctant of readers, the dialogue is forced and awkward, the characters are thinly drawn, and resolutions seem easy and convenient. A lackluster addition to a genre that is already full of superior selections.-Heather Dieffenbach, Lexington Public Library, KY

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the first two Dec 22 2000
By M_Girl
Format:Paperback
In her new book, the end of the Goldstone trilogy, Julie Lawson ties together two stories; one from the past, one from the present, and the connections, how a boy from the early part of the century searches for one of two magical goldstones, and how it got into the hands of Ashley's family, first owned by her great-aunt's mother and passed down from Aunt Joanne to Ashley herself, and how it linked her with a strange story from the early part of the 20th century in B.C.'s mountains.
