The Stones Speak
by Nancy King
Secrets that won't go away. Truths not faced. The Stones Speak is a novel about what it takes to find a true home within oneself.
Naomi and Priscilla have been distant friends, meeting at professional conferences for many years. After Naomi moves from Boston to Santa Fe, where Priscilla lives, the proximity strains their relationship. The friendship is further threatened when Naomi becomes involved with Paul, a man Priscilla doesn't like. When Naomi's past catches up with her, she is forced to confront the results of a desperate decision she made while in her twenties. Her response to this personal crisis, and her choices about how to be with her friend Priscilla, and with Paul, help heal the old wounds that have held Naomi prisoner. She comes to recognize that being emotionally closed is ultimately more painful than taking the risk of opening one's heart. Her courage in confronting her demons helps Paul and Priscilla find their truths as well.
