The destruction of the Holy Temple also shattered one man's faith. Stone's restlessness drove him from the quiet hills, to a city full of desire and worldly lust. He found solace in Rome's favorite cafes and inns, until the night he heard the voices from his past. One woman, Hannah, stood in faith, praying Stone would heed their calls, while trying to protect him from the strongholds of the city, and those who used him for their personal gain. Local fishermen hired Stone, hoping he would avoid the entanglements of Tiberias. Confronted with the consequences of the city's passions one stormy night at sea, Stone was awakened, leading him back to the safe arms of Hannah, who wrestled with her own secrets. Together, they overcame, and walked in God's faithfulness back to Stone's quiet hills, the voices now following the prodigal home, their hope renewed in the Father's love. Author, musician and former business owner, Joni has a passion for history, especially His story. STONE is her third book of the Selah Series and she plans to continue expanding her writing career. Over the years she has served in her local church as a leader in Women's Ministry and on Worship Teams playing violin. She hopes her writing inspires others to dig deep in God's Word and discover for themselves the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. She has called South Florida home the past forty years, and in her quiet time, you'll find her enjoying the beach.
