Publishers Description "Twelve Stones" is the story of Barbara Ilaynia, a secular Jew who worships Art and Romance, who tries to unravel the meaning of existence and make every moment a masterpiece. She lives and loves with passion, though not always with wisdom, in Parisian garrets and in Moroccan villages, in the light of Southern France and in sunny California. While embracing the drama of life and inhaling the fragrance of flowers along her path, her search is sometimes misguided by intensity and misled by intellectualism. At the zenith of her quest, Barbara discovers something even more meaningful than truth: She encounters the Source of love. Her life changing confrontation with God transforms a strong willed, sensual, tough minded individualist . . . and then her real journey begins. This book is Barbara's altar of remembrance, built from the stones she has pocketed along her winding path. She builds this altar to honor the God of miracles.

So Impressed! Feb 16, 2010
I'm just overwhelmed with this book. I started it in the afternoon and finished it at 1:00 am that same night. Was it just another "religious" book? Oh, no! The pain is so real, the struggle within so devastating. This story validated the struggles of single parenthood, faith in disasters, and tears along with joy. And her writing is so beautiful. I hope she has another book in the wings. This touched my heart.
