'Solace of Stone' is a touching and complicated love story.
George and Charlotte, the book's two protagonists, struggle with emotions of regret, loss and loneliness. Where can people find solace: in nature, work, philosophy, art...other people? If you want to embrace life, should you lose yourself in Beethoven and Brahms, or the breaking of waves on the reef? David de Wolf gently probes these and other questions of human nature throughout 'Solace of Stone'.
I recommend this book to fans of Proust's 'A la recherche du temps perdu', or anyone who prefers soulful and mature writing to shallow sensationalism.
