Description

Review "I absolutely love this. It's original with a strong theme and lots of social history . . ." Margaret Kaine, award winning author. 'It's not going to happen to us, is it? We'll be different.' But how long can love last against the social unrest of the South Wales mining valleys? It is the early 20th century, when gruelling poverty and the cruelty of mine owners takes its toll on families and the love within them. And for a horrified Kate, there is the burden of a shameful secret. Can she find the deep inner strength she needs or lose everything? Then she discovers the rocking stone.

About Jill Rutherford

Jill Rutherford is the author of the best-selling memoir, Cherry Blossoms, Sushi and Takarazuka Seven Years in Japan, and the Secret Samurai Trilogy voted as one of the seven must-read Japan related books. The Rocking Stone is her first novel not set in Japan. Born into the Welsh Mining Valleys, Jill now lives on the South Coast of England. She lived in Japan for seven years where she ran her own successful business. She writes full-time and when she's not writing you'll find her walking her dog, gardening, drinking red wine and visiting coffee shops - not necessarily in that order.
