Book Feature and Giveaway: The Pearls Of The Stone Man by Edward Mooney Jr.

The Pearls of the Stone Man is an inspirational novel with plot elements that touch both older and younger generations. Main characters Joseph and Anne Marino are rare. They’re still in love after 53 years of marriage and with little time left, Joseph’s priority becomes finishing the stone wall that Anne requested years ago – a special reminder from her childhood.

Needing the help of someone younger, Joseph turns to his son, estranged for five years, in hopes of rebuilding a severed relationship as well as the wall. Two teenagers also come to Joseph’s aide, and he to theirs, as they all work to finish Joseph’s promise to Anne.
The Pearls of the Stone Man was written in the town in which the book is set: Pine Mountain , California . The settings in the novel are real locations and Edward takes groups of readers there regularly.

Edward filmed 5 short video vignettes highlighting the real settings of The Pearls of the Stone Man. Check them out at: http://www.edwardmooney.com/pearls-author-visit.htm or,

  5. I enjoyed watching Episode 4: The Stone Wall. I thought it was sweet that Ann left little gifts in the wall for her father, and even sweeter that Joseph rebuilt the stone wall for her :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  6. I watched Episode 5: The Village. What a beautiful sounding town, so quant and homey. I loved hearing the birds in the background! I can imagine that the freedom and openness of the town could be both comforting and ripe with mischief. I would love to see how the town fits into the book.
    Thanks,
