The Stone Book Quartet
Age Range: Pre Teens+
4 interlinked short stories covering one rural Macclesfield family over some 3 centuries. Originally stonemasons, they turn to smithing, and there are links from one story to another.
A quiet book with delicate interweaving of family history. There is a certain delight in the dialect spoken and in recognising the links to past stories. It has a musical feel to it, with themes emerging and reemerging and changes of tack midstory.
