Solace of Stone: Masterful - a book to savor and ponder about

Set in Sicily and other parts of Europe, Solace of Stone brings together two unlikely characters: George, a lonely architect, whose memories into the past we follow in this book, and Charlotte, an emotionally-wounded woman. Told in almost poetical prose, this novel demands to be savored and not read quickly. Although it appears to be a love story, the novel is more about the confusing impulses that compel both characters to lead the lives they have followed. The important of intuition and its consequences are all there, with the clear message that it's important to make the best of this short life we live.
Touching, emotional, powerful, and thoughtful. This is a high quality novel that stands out from the many books we find today.
