Giveaway: The Pearls of the Stone Man by Edward Mooney Jr.



The Pearls of the Stone Man is an inspirational novel with plot elements that touch both older and younger generations. Main characters Joseph and Anne Marino are rare. They’re still in love after 53 years of marriage and with little time left, Joseph’s priority becomes finishing the stone wall that Anne requested years ago – a special reminder from her childhood.

Needing the help of someone younger, Joseph turns to his son, estranged for five years, in hopes of rebuilding a severed relationship as well as the wall. Two teenagers also come to Joseph’s aide, and he to theirs, as they all work to finish Joseph’s promise to Anne.

The Pearls of the Stone Man was written in the town in which the book is set: Pine Mountain, California. The settings in the novel are real locations and Edward takes groups of readers there regularly.


Edward filmed 5 short video vignettes highlighting the real settings of The Pearls of the Stone Man.

+1 This sounds like such a touching and heartfelt story. It would probably make me cry, I'm an emotional girl! I imagine what me and my boyfriend will be like years and years from now when we're old. I think we were meant to be together. <3
