Emma Simms moves past a troubling childhood in small-town Clare, Michigan, to become a successful writer. After being abandoned by her father and losing her mother to drugs, Emma raises her younger sister, Kate, and maintains her emotional and mental equilibrium by keeping the friendly residents of Clare at a safe distance.
In fact, in all her relationships, Emma plays it cool, choosing to break up with boyfriends before things get "too serious" and keeping only one close, true friend. She's been hurt before and isn't willing to get hurt again, so she keeps her heart under lock and key and refuses to let anyone in too deep.
This strategy works well enough until a mysterious man comes to town, and Emma's life-and the lives of the people she cares about-begin to unravel, forcing her to confront painful questions about love and loss.
A suspenseful, fast-paced psychological thriller, Pieces of Stone is about the desire to belong, family ties, and the fears and needs that plague us all.
