The exciting and heart-warming
sequel to The Spruce Gum Box
One family, one journey, many paths, all guided by the strength and wisdom of one amazing woman. Granite Hearts continues the tale of early Maine settlers introduced in The Spruce Gum Box who fought the odds to not only survive, but thrive in the developing 1800’s Maine wilderness despite hardship, prejudice, and the growing turbulence between the states.
“Granite Hearts is a story that compels you to keep reading, yet makes you want to slow down so you can savor it.
Reading it, I could smell the early morning crispness of a winter day, smell the pines and hear the rushing rivers. It brought me back to an earlier time, where life was simple yet filled with complications unlike we encounter today. It gave me a sense of how my own ancestors must have lived.
The symbolism of ‘Granite Hearts’ is fully interwoven throughout the novel, culminating with the poignant ending.
Granite Hearts is recommended reading for; anyone who likes a well-crafted story, for the history buff, and for those interested in the plight of Native Americans, particularly the Mi’kmaq around the time of the War Between the States. It is also an outstanding story for those interested in strong pioneer women as exemplified in main character, Gert. It’s a story I’ll keep, to read again.”
Pat Cher, author of Mi’kmaq Song
