Misty Provencher has outdone herself with “Cornerstone”, the tale of Nalena Maxwell. Nalena and her mother, Evangeline, live a life separated from others. Evangeline’s obsession with writing stories and never finishing them causes an ever-growing pile of papers to overflow their house. Nalena grows more and more isolated from her peers until she meets Garrett.
He reaches out to her, befriending her and saving her life when she is attacked and nearly killed. From that point on everything in her life starts to change as she develops abilities that she doesn’t understand and has no idea how to control. Everything culminates with the need for Nalena to choose her path: to make the choice whether she will live the Simple Life, or take the path that leads to inevitable danger.
I highly recommend this book. It was given freely as a gift on Misty Provencher’s blog to all of her dedicated readers. Her book Cornerstone was an excellent read and she is now one of my new favorite authors. Cornerstone made me laugh and cry and I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
Cornerstone: 4 out of 5 stars:
