For two years, since the death of her sister, Allaya Sheldon has been running on autopilot. She is in desperate need of healing and restoration but has denied anyone or anything that could bring her the peace that she needs . . . until now.
A firm but gentle prodding has brought her to her family's lake house seeking solitude and healing.

The appearance of her childhood friend, Finn Meyers, presents as a distraction from her purpose, but Allaya soon discovers that God's plan for her healing involves much more than just a quiet cabin and a picturesque lake. He wants to reveal his goodness and do a work in both Allaya and Finn's lives that neither of them ever saw coming.

God is good, and until we can receive that truth we can't fully receive the gifts that he has for us.

I wasn't looking for a romantic story line when I picked this book up. It did keep things interesting though. :) I loved sharing the journey to wholeness with the two main characters. The book does a great job of telling a wonderful story with believable and real characters while sharing aspects of God's heart to his children. This book is a gem. Read it. :)

This book is a beautiful reminder of God's never ending love for us and his seeking for us no matter how damaged or lost we may think we are. I loved reading this story that was so descriptive and heart felt that I was brought to tears on more than one occasion. This is truly a story that I would want every woman in my life to read.

This wonderful book is a beautiful description of true love. True love first between us and God. He is good, loves us unconditionally, despite all circumstances. Then how true love develops between a girl and a boy, strongly rooted with The Lord as center. I was immediately drawn in to this story and completely engrossed until the end.

I read this novel cover to cover in less than 24 hours. For a busy homeschool mom of three, that is really saying something. Eloquent and insightful, Stones of Remembrance captures a loves story between man and woman, yes. But, more to the point, it is beautiful love story between God and his beloved children - a story of His pursuit, His comforting nature, His healing powers, and His perfectly crafted plans. This is a must read.

Having grown up on Christian fiction (and subsequently casting it aside in recent years), I don't know what I expected from Stones of Remembrance, but I certainly didn't expect it to be as powerfully relatable as it was. For me, the problem with typical Christian fiction is that it really doesn’t give room for characters to struggle with their faith. There might be an internal conflict or two, but it’s usually very brief and resolved quickly without much tension. Not so in Stones of Remembrance. Julie writes each scene with depth; her use of imagery pulls you into the story. She has found a perfect balance between believable characters and riveting plot lines. She builds in scriptural truths without sounding cheesy, old-fashioned, or pious. And when it comes to relational tension? She’s got that down, too. Stones of Remembrance is edgy; it’s “not your mama’s Christian fiction.” It’s real. It’s honest. It’s authentic.

I loved this book! Before I go on, I must make one thing clear: the genre of Christian fiction, and romance in particular, is one I usually stay away from. Far away. I find the characters superficial, at best, their dialogue boring and unrealistic, and their walk of faith especially melodramatic and improbable. Not so with Julie Presley's novel! It was so refreshing to find within the pages of Stones of Remembrance real characters, whose relationships are not some impossible ideal; characters who react like you and I would, to each other - and to God. I finished this novel with tears in my eyes, but uplifted by the reminder of the faithfulness of God and his unrelenting love for us.
