HURON — “Love & Stones” the second novel by Huron author Sallianne Hines, is a tale of seasoned romance, friendship, horseback adventure and family drama rolled into one life-changing journey. The book was published through Grasslands Press.
Written Jane Austen style, “Love & Stones” introduces the reader to Cathryn McNeil, a twice divorced children’s therapist who wants to believe in happily-ever after. Stuck in a small prairie town, she’s resigned herself to seclusion with her animals and fictional heroes, until she meets polo player Jack Stone at a funeral. Their mutual love of horses sparks hope, but he acts more scoundrel than hero.
With her heart still buried in a graveyard of loss, it seems too late for adventure — or love. When fate offers a second chance, can she conquer the challenges of nature and human folly to free herself from the past? Or has she misread too many novels?
Hines’ first book, “Her Summer at Pemberley,” is a “Pride and Prejudice” sequel following the story of Kitty Bennet.
“Love & Stones” is available in both ebook and paperback format. Readers can find it at the Huron Public Library or at most online stores, or contact Hines through her website at www.salliannehines.com for a personalized, autographed copy, with free delivery in Huron.
Her website contains more information about her books, reader reviews, and the opportunity to sign up for her newsletter. Two more books are in progress at this time. Hines is a member of the James River Writers, currently meeting online, and is also an editor at Quinn Editing.
