A Tumbled Stone by Marcia Laycock is the sequel to her first novel One Smooth Stone. I loved the first book and was anxious to read the second installment. I wasn’t disappointed. A Tumbled Stone introduces Andrea, a fostered teenager who has struggled all her life to fit in while living on a farm in rural Saskatchewan. When she finds that she is pregnant, she decides to run away to the city. The book also follows the life of Alex Perrin (Donnelly), whose adventures and oftentimes traumatic discoveries are laid out in book one. It is at the end of One Smooth Stone that we discover Alex has a sister, and you guessed correctly – it’s Andrea. A Tumbled Stone is primarily Andrea’s story, however, but woven throughout is Alex’s search for her. If you enjoyed the first book you won’t want to miss this one. I would recommend reading book one, though, before delving into book two, since there are lots of references that might lose meaning if you haven’t.
