Format: Hardcover
The pale pink marble buildings glistened in the sunlight shining through the shadows of the North Carolina mountains like some fairy tale city - or perhaps it was a little slice of heaven that had descended to earth upon the wings of fairies. The Wade family, pushed almost beyond endurance, gazed down upon the vision with awe. They had never seen anything like it in all the poor existence of their lives.
The two little girls, who could have passed for sisters except that one was a little pink white girl and the other was a little pink honey girl, stood in front of the Hardigree Marble Showcase watching the little raggedy family walk into town pushing the old beat up truck packed with their belongings. The truck, with pots and pans and household belongings hanging from every nook and cranny, stopped in front of the Hardigree Marble Showcase - and the two little girls. The little pink white girl had never seen anything like it in all her protected pink existence. The dirty little boy standing by the beat up old truck glared at her, daring her to laugh at him.
The town of Burnt Creek, North Carolina was built from the beautiful pale pink marble dug from beneath the ground surrounding the town. But the pale pink marble had a dusky dark rose streak running through it. Some things are best left uncovered - or are they?
Deborah Smith has created a world that draws you in and won't let you go. It is a world that is full of twists and turns and the haunted past of not only the little pink white girl but of her ancestors as well. Stone Flower Garden is a mystery yet it is a fine love story as well. Will love be able to overcome the shadows of the past?

Format: Hardcover
I found this book in one of our libraries while indulging a sudden craving for Mills & Boon. I forgot what a decent romance could be like, and this is definitely not Mills & Boon. The Stone Flower Garden is a proper story, and I have to admit I dropped everything just to hang onto every word. I felt so drawn into the imagery created, and kept holding my breath in the hopes that everything would come right in the end. After reading the book, I flicked back to the beginning where Eli and Darl dance, somewhat defiantly, and where Jasper just wants to get his family out of town. Then I opened the book at the first page and read it all again right through.

I could see it playing right before my eyes, typical of the kind of film that fits into the Channel Five afternoon movie slot, and for some reason I cast Jim Caviezel into the dual role of Jasper/Eli, and possibly Vanessa Williams as Swann Hardigree (I really liked her style in Ugly Betty). I'm still working on the rest of the cast. This is a book I'll return to time and again.

I loved this book nearly as much a "a Gentle Rain" (one of my all time favourites). Its a larger than life story which makes parts of it a bit implausible but it doesn't matter, the joy is in the story telling which is so nicely done that you become completely immersed in the pink marble world of Burnt Stand. The characters are interesting and appealing - Deborah Smith writes great men who are honourable as well as physically gorgeous. This book reminds me why I love the written word and getting lost in it - its a very sweet love story as well (to call it a "romance" would be a major under-sell).

I started this book and quickly realised that it was possibly more aimed at the female market! I however carried on reading the book and although it is very different to the kind of book I normally read, I found it held me captivated. I very quickly read through the book and enjoyed the various twists and turns. Poverty versus wealth played a big part in the book and how the underdog can come through in the end. The language used was interesting and everything was explained in well though out words.
