Praise for Stones in the Road

"Complex characters, vividly rendered details, and a storyline filled with page-turning plot twists combine to create a compelling read. The reader will be riveted as both mother and son, separated by a tragic event, search for wholeness, redemption, and forgiveness as they face their own demons. The novel celebrates the enduring strength of family bonds even as it explores their darker side. A powerful and perceptive novel, Stones in the Road is a true odyssey of the heart."--Amy Belding Brown, author of Flight of the Sparrow

"What an extraordinary achievement this novel from E.B. Moore is. The journey, both literal and metaphorical, of a boy into manhood engages the reader every step of the way. I couldn't stop reading and felt I lived the experience with Joshua as he learned the limits of freedom and explored the complexities of the heart. Brava."--Jeanne Mackin, author of The Beautiful American

"Written with poetry, a pitch-perfect ear for detail and dark humor, Stones In the Road is a story about perseverance and the ties that bind a family through grief and hardship, across distance and time. You'll fall in love with young Joshua and follow him anywhere. Take this journey in Moore's lyric tale and you, too, will find your way home."--Ann Bauer, author of Forgiveness 4 You

"I love this book. What a joy to dwell in E.B. Moore's flawless prose, to benefit from her unflinching insights into Amish culture and into human nature, most of all. Part adventure, part family drama, part coming-of-age, Stones in the Road is both muscular and sensitive, and is not to be missed."--Robin Black, author of Life Drawing

"In spare and Psalm-like prose, E. B. Moore expertly transports the reader on an epic yet intimate journey through the harrowing terrain of 19th Century America. This is an absorbing and satisfying read from an assured historical novelist."--Christopher Castellani, author of All This Talk of Love

"This harrowing tale about an Amish family torn apart by alcohol and loss grabs the reader from the first sentence. A haunting, intense novel with powerful characters, this beautiful book will linger with you long after you read the last page."--Linda K. Wertheimer, author of Faith Ed: Teaching About Religion In An Age of Intolerance
