Twelve Stones: Notes on a Miraculous Journey is a memoir by Barbara Carole. Her writing is melodious. Her life story is full of extreme peaks of Joy and Sadness. This book reminds of “The Perils of Pauline” in that her chapters leave the reader on the brink of a joyous or tragic event in her life.
Barbara lived a straightforward life and a Bohemian life at various stages in her journey. Her travels took her to Europe, Morocco and the East and West Coasts of the United States. [Editor’s note: Barbara Carole now lives in Washington.] Barbara was an educator (university level) and a researcher (for Jacques Cousteau). Barbara has also worked in advertising and marketing. She has also been a writer.
I recommend this book to readers even if you do not usually read memoirs.
Go! Buy! Read!
