That brings hidden things to light.
And a portal that would take Jim to the past.
A past where great deeds were done.
Jim Brooks is a young man in his last year of high school. He’s a Mormon and a nobody at school or anywhere else, it seems, likes that. At least to him.
He chafes at his life. His family is a zero; his father has a nothing job Jim feels is beneath anyone anywhere in the world. And he thinks his father’s making up for it with works at church.
For Jim it is all pretense.
He doesn’t want pretense. He wants to do great things. He doesn’t want to waste away his life in insignificance. He wants to be somebody, to do something big.
In the room of a boy from church, he finds a card. That card speaks to him, telling him things only he knows. He could do great things, it said, if he’d seize the opportunity.
At the shop of D. B. Putnam.
He’s given a stone, a stone that will show him where the portals are. These are portals to the past, to the great past where significant events have taken place, where great deeds had been done, deeds Jim could be a part of and not simply learn about at church. He could make his mark in the world, be something, be somebody.
Through the portal.
Just look into the stone.
He looks and steps through into what becomes the most dangerous situation he has ever faced.
In The Stone, Archon Books brings you the story of a young man who seeks greatness but gets more than he bargained for. In the process, however, he may find his soul.
From the author of The Pearl.
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This is a book written for a Mormon (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) audience.
