In a word: magic. Finbar Hawkins’ myth-infused Stone casts an unforgettable spell. Lucidly poetic, its bone-deep evocation of a boy’s grief for his father speaks to the heart in wonderful, accessible ways that will resonate with a huge range of readers.

While tormented by grief, and guilt over the last words he spoke to his deceased dad, Sam finds a stone that seems to make strange things happen, not least when he visits the legend-steeped hillside near his home. Then, as Sam’s mum and sister implore him to open up, enchanting, tarot-reading Oona explains that the stone is a scrying stone, as used by witches “to tell the future, to read the past… to open other worlds”.

With Halloween approaching, a time “when all that’s dead returns to the earth”, to quote Oona, Sam opens up to a man who’s struggling with the death of his wife, and opens his heart to find reconciliation and the beginnings of peace.

Honest and profound on the pain of loss and the magic of unexpected healing, Stone is a heart-achingly beautiful, savour-in-one-sitting treasure.
