Mary Ball shares about her book Stone of Destiny

Stone of Destiny
12.99 paperback
2.99 eBook
Taylor has given up on everything but her work. After becoming the youngest CEO of Mugful’s Beverage Company, she believes life is complete--until her grandmother asks her to oversee the renovations of the family home, in addition to searching for a missing heirloom. 

Her first contact with what she believes is an insignificant ring, lost for fifty years, sends her life spinning. Taylor experiences strange. Unexpected feelings surface that she doesn't understand. Thoughts that should remain unspoken are voiced. 

Taylor’s emotional journey begins, testing a heart as cold as the ring itself and forcing her to question everything she believes. 

Is this a fairytale, or simply her soul reaching out for a different world--a life she can only find through faith and a divine trust in God?
Mary says:
The most favorite part of Stone of Destiny is the chapter where Taylor and her mom talk about life, It's not an earth shattering moment for Taylor, but for the first time she sees the world from her mom's prospective. Taylor then begins to understand what happiness really is about.        
Two things I have learned during writing and publishing are:
1. Having a critique partner is a must. 
2. Weasel words are a bad habit. :)
When readers finish Stone of Destiny I hope they share the lesson Taylor learned.

About the Author:

I live in North Carolina between the wondrous mountains and beautiful beaches. Every chance I get to explore these two picturesque places I travel three hours (in either direction) and bask in the splendor. I love the outdoors, there is so much creativity to look at, and I'm always amazed at the vast world God gave us.
My favorite pastimes is fishing and of course, reading, not necessarily in that order and often together. Last year, I caught a forty-five-pound Red Drum. Hey, for me that was a milestone!
Just like everyone else, I sometimes get bogged down. I have to step back and take a look at the big picture. On those occasions, I seek solace in the Lord. Jesus endured much for us, so we're sure to face the adversary at times. Religious traditions will not define my novels. I depend on God's word to lead the way.
Being there for my family and supporting my husband's ministry reminds me that life is more about what we have, than the things we don't. I also enjoy singing gospel music.

  2. I loved Mary's book, Stone of Destiny. The people come to life in the pages as the main character tries to balance mixed feelings for two guys. I enjoy the travels the athor takes her readers on, and the older people she cares deeply for. Mary has a talent for sharing her faith among the adventure and romance, making her book an excellent read.
