Solace of Stonea story about making choices

An earthquake has destroyed the center of a Sicilian town. Architect George Nobel is charged with creating a plan for its restoration. At about the same time, someone finds a mysterious piece of art in a South American jungle - a relief carved in slate. Art historian Charlotte Vermeer gets the assignment to catalogue the relief. Solace of Stone chronicles their separate but intertwined stories.

Both Charlotte and George struggle with emotions of regret, loss and loneliness. Where can people find solace: in nature, work, philosophy, art... other people? If you want to embrace life, should you lose yourself in Beethoven and Brahms, or the breaking of waves on the reef? Are we imposters? What happens if we try to escape from our reality? David de Wolf gently probes these and other questions of human nature throughout Solace of Stone.A book of living life to the fullest.
