Book Description

The three stories in The Knowledge Stone span fourteen centuries from the Dark Ages
to the present day.

In the first story, the reader is confronted with the brutal realities of life for young farm slaves in
the 7th Century AD. The second story focuses on the privileged life of a high-born, haughty and extremely cruel teenage girl in the 14th Century. In the final tale, set in the 21st Century, the life of a feckless, dishonest and manipulative middle manager in a typical, large commercial firm takes centre stage.

Woven around the mysterious Knowledge Stone, each story is a powerful and absorbing account of human actions, emotions and relationships, manifested in tightly-knit, often claustrophobic situations filled with acute drama and tragedy. Each story shows that the acquisition of the Knowledge Stone by one of the characters alters everything through its mysterious influence. The awesome meaning of its fundamental presence and power is revealed only obliquely through interspersed and concluding reflections.

Jack McGinnigle's first novel is published by Piquant Editions.

I have enjoyed reading this book and found that it had a deep meaning that was not immediately apparent. The book is certainly a page turner and was fairly easy to read. The author has a wonderful way of getting into the mind of his characters and shows the reader what they are thinking in the circumstances that they find themselves in. It is also quite brilliant in its portrayal of good and evil. In the background there is a sense of mystery that can only come from an unseen source which may or may not exist. The three stories chosen to illustrate this "spiritual" power are well chosen and show the depth of the author's understanding of human strengths and weaknesses. An excellent book to read.
