Silence Under A Stone Summary

Silence Under A Stone by Norma MacMaster

Sitting alone in her Dublin nursing home, Harriet Campbell reflects on a life that has become tainted by bitterness and regret. From a strictly Presbyterian community along the Irish border, at sixteen young Harriet is married off to Thomas, a respected church Elder but a cold, sober man twice her age. The birth of her son James, a bright boy destined for great things, brings joy and light to her life. But when he falls in love with a beautiful girl from the wrong faith, their relationship is torn apart.

Written in startlingly beautiful prose, Norma MacMaster's Silence Under a Stone is an intimate, deeply moving story of love, faith and the pain of an irreconcilable heart.
