A tragic past buried forever in the island place of stones. com User, October 18, 1999. A Place of Stones is a wonderful novel because it's real and out there. It talks about people and sentiments we find ourselves dealing with everyday. The love you seek but cannot reach. The want to belong but never finding the place you know is home.

There are some twisted destinies, lies from birth becoming tragic as the stories of life are left to follow their course, protecting no one (not even the one the lies were trying to protect). Incest in this case could become inevitable... But readers leading an ordinary life are sheltered from the possibilities of such a fate.
You need to have a very open mind, a sense of wonder, to accept unpopular views.
The portray of this 20th century strong woman is comforting and a tribute to all women alike.
Intrigues, fame, poverty and wealth are all present. Description of nature rivals those of poets..
A great read,from which I left refreshed... and grateful for the destiny I had.

A Place of Stones is a wonderful novel because it's real and out there. It talks about people and sentiments we find ourselves dealing with everyday. The love you seek but cannot reach. The want to belong but never finding the place you know is home. I think it got to me because once I started to read it I could not put it down. I got involved in the story, imagining the places and people mentioned. Deciding whether I liked a character or not. I think a particular novel reaches the top and is read by many if the plot line is strong enough to keep the reader interested and guessing on what might happen next. A Place of Stones did that.

I'm not a prude at all, but this is too much! Ok about the sister and brother getting married (absurdly farfetched that they would even meet let alone marry), but at least they were unaware of their true relationship. And the baby had to be genetically defective? Come on, now! But to have the hots for your sibbling? Who cares if they were not BIOLOGICALLY related? They were raised all their lives as sister and brother for God's sake. So now I suppose adopted siblings, step-sibblings will start lusting after each other. On page 230 thereabouts the author decided she needed some hot sex to keep the reader's interest. This is apparently about as far a romance writer can go without detailed sex. Ms Purcell suddenly produces a character named Gillian who does not even reappear in the book. Ok, so why did I read the book if I feel so negative about it? Well, it is highly readable and even pretty good at times. The best writing, I thought, was the plane crash in the beginning of the book. I also loved the character Maggie. Too bad she was killed off in the first chapter. I will not attempt to read anymore of Ms Purcell's books, thank you.

This novel is so beautifully writen that it's extremely difficult to ever forget the characters or the dark secrets they hide. It introduced me to this author who has gone on to write equally compelling stories
