One Smooth Stone By: Marcia Lee Laycock

*This Book was part of the CFRB's March Tour, but due to some unseen obstacles, the book was late in reaching me for reviewing.

Synopsis of One Smooth Stone:
Alex Donnelly knows all about running. He's running from his past pain, from the police, and from God. Raised in an abusive foster home, Alex is angry at the world and tries to bury his pain by hiding out in the far north, near Dawson City Yukon.

But then one day a lawyer shows up on his doorstep and tells him he has inherited a sum of money. Sceptical, yet intrigued, Alex returns to his birth city to find answers to questions about his parents and his past.

What he finds is a young woman who seems to understand him too well, and a secret that causes him to run again.

But God goes before him and sets up a few more divine appointments, including an attack by Grizzly bear.

This book proves that no matter how far you run, God will find you; and no matter what you have done, God will forgive you.


At First I wasn't sure about this book, it was one of those things, that they were low on Reviewers so I decided 'sure I'll review it'. I am so glad that I decided to review this book! It all starts with a boy who is put in foster care, and treated terribly! and then is blamed for a terrible crime...SO he runs to the Yukon!

The only problem is there is a very determined Law Firm trying to track him down to give him his inheritance...that he knew nothing about...From parents he can't remember! When George (the attorney) Finds him, and finally convinces him to come to Seattle, Alex is in for more surprises!

He meets a Beautiful woman, and receives some shocking news via letter that his mother wrote him when they set up the inheritance account.

Will he be able to stop running long enough to realize the only person he's really running from is God? And that even though he may think he's not worthy of someone's love, it's not always his decision?

This story was so good that I ended up reading it in 1 day...I just couldn't put it down!

In my book this is a 4/5 Star Book! I'll definitely be waiting to see if there is any more books to this story! (she sure left it like there could :)
