Book Description

March 22 2012
Andrea Calvert had to run away. She couldn't stay on the farm with her foster parents, shaming them before their neighbours and legalistic church. She couldn't face going to live with strangers in her condition, as her foster mother had arranged. But she couldn't face being pregnant and alone. She would have to take care of this in her own way. But when Andrea arrives at Evie's Rocky Road Diner, she sees an opportunity for work and decides to stay. Evie's gentle advice begins to change her heart. She shows her the stone tumbler set up in the basement of the diner and gives Andrea a stone pendant, saying, "God is always doing things in our lives, but it takes time. He knows exactly when to take the pressure off or increase it. He knows just how much tumbling we need." As she struggles to make decisions that will change her life, Andrea discovers her foster mother's diary and the wrenching story that reveals the deep reasons for the dysfunction in their family. Meanwhile, a figure from Andrea's past has hired investigators to find her. Is Andrea's life at risk at Evie's Diner? "A powerful tale of redemption, of belonging. Like drawing back the curtains on a world of wonder and hope." -Phil Callaway, author of Wonders Never Cease "This is a novel with power and vision, profoundly taking you deep into matters of the soul. Read it, enjoy it, and when you turn the final page, be prepared to discover that it's a story that will stay with you for a long, long time." -Sigmund Brouwer, author of The Weeping Chamber ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Marcia's inspirational writing has won awards in both Canada and the U.S. Her devotionals are distributed to thousands and her debut novel, One Smooth Stone, won her the Best New Canadian Christian Author Award. Marcia is also a sought-after speaker for women's events and can be reached through her website: www.vinemarc.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was worth the wait. July 24 2012
Format:Paperback
I've been looking forward to this sequel to "One Smooth Stone". "A Tumbled Stone" was worth the wait. I was drawn into the struggles of Alex, his sister and her foster parents as each grappled with becoming free to express and receive the love everyone longs for. What each character copes with on this quest makes for a totally satisfying "page-turner".

4.0 out of 5 stars Long-Awaited Sequel Jan. 18 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
In the long-awaited sequel to her debut novel One Smooth Stone, Marcia Laycock tells the story of Alex's sister Andrea. Also left in foster care, Andrea is now facing a crisis pregnancy herself. Running away to Saskatoon, Andrea finds a job in a diner where she connects with the motherly owner and the mentally handicapped busboy. Meanwhile, Alex is looking for her, desperate not only to reconnect with his only family member, but also wanting to pass on important medical information about their mother. I enjoyed meeting Alex again and getting to know Andrea. At times, the story felt a bit "preachy" - several characters share their testimonies - but in the end, it was fun to see how all the threads of the stories came together to produce a happy ending for each character.
