The Forever Stone

Book 1 — The Dumont Chrnicles

Christian Fiction

“Don’t bury yourself in that wilderness!” her relatives say. “Even though you’re a widow, you’re still young.”

No matter what they think, Madeleine decides to go. She’ll help her aunt restore the old house; she’ll sign up for an online baking course; and she’ll bury—yes, bury—those terrible memories. “From now on,” she tells herself, “I’m going to be strong and independent.”

Her plan seems to be working, except for the panic attacks, until she has to deflect the attentions of two men.

The doctor, who has a fire-scarred past, is not upset by her panic attacks and knows he can help her to heal. The writer, who conceals more than one secret, admires her spirit and is certain that she needs him.

God uses both men and her father’s gift of a floral paperweight to remind her of His enduring “forever love,” and as she yields to Him, she finds the courage to take a new and challenging path.

Mollie's father gave her a paperweight
that became her "forever stone."

The Dumont Chronicles: Looking Ahead. In Deep Focus, Lindsey Dumont, photographer, travels hopefully to the Olympic Penninsula, only to struggle with a ruinous mystery and the man who deceived her. She wonders, "Is this how God answers my prayers?"
