Sherry Kyle in her new book, “The Heart Stone book coverThe Heart Stone” published by Abingdon Press takes us into the lives of Jessica MacAllister and Evelyn Sweeney.

From the back cover:  Two women.  Two journeys.  A season that may change their lives forever.

When the alcoholic father of Jessica MacAllister’ s son reappears in their lives, Jessica and her son go to her Uncle George for advice and refuge.

Following a year of grief, Evelyn Sweeney is finally ready to move on. Pondering her new path in life, her mind drifts to her first love, George MacAllister.

When the lives of these two women cross, they discover that one heart-shaped ring binds their stories together. But will the results be a rekindled faith and new hope?  Or will it lead them both back into the darkness they’ve fought for so long?

Jessica wants to escape from the father of her son and decides to take her son down to Santa Cruz for the week.  Evelyn is a year into being a widow after forty years or marriage and in her sixties when she decides to look up her old flame from forty years before.  Nick is a firefighter who longs for his own family.  The lives of all these characters dovetail around George MacAllister.  Ms. Kyle does a wonderful job of getting all these characters lives to unfold as each is told separately until they all meet.  “The Heart Stone” is a wonderful, charming romance.  The themes of letting go of past hurts, questioning whether you can be forgiven and trusting again is explored with a deft hand by Ms. Kyle.  Ms. Kyle does an outstanding job of bringing her characters to life and you really want their romance to succeed.  I am already looking forward to more from this talented author.
