The World from Rough Stones is Book One in a trilogy following the Stevenson Family written by Malcolm Macdonald.
Another book that I found wandering around Chapters. It caught my eye and reading the back of the book saying, “Rich and exciting” from the Washington Star. “You can’t put it down” Chattanooga Times. Well, what does Barbara McKenzie say????
I couldn’t finish this book. There are only a handful of books I’ve never been able to finish and The World from Rough Stones will now be added to this small group.
I never felt any pull to any of the characters and the story seemed very dry and I actually skimmed through certain sections because it was just so boring. I read about 400 pages before I gave up. Very disappointing.
