Introduction

Millions of years ago, a meteorite fell to earth and a beautiful blue stone shattered from it. One hundred thousand years ago, a girl named Tall One found the crystal on the African plain-and it formed her destiny, as well as the destiny of generations to come. From ancient Israel to Imperial Rome, medieval England, fifteenth-century Germany, the eighteenth-century Caribbean, and the nineteenth-century American West, the destiny of the stone and the history of the world unfold. Each story is full of the betrayals and obsessions of the human heart, and the quests of the human spirit. In The Blessing Stone, Barbara Wood has both told the intimate details of her characters' lives and created a sense of the epic sweep of human history.

I thought this was an excellent discussion book; so many different opinions!!!

 
  "The book is divided into historically-based sections - like James Michener did in his books. Some sections were more interesting than others. If you're a Michener fan this will be a disappointment."by kj1948 (see profile) 09/22/08

 
  "not super. Not really a good book club choice"by beckylord (see profile) 07/11/08

 
  "slow to start up, dense style of writing with lots of details"by ellentambo (see profile) 05/27/08

I took a long time to get into the book, and even then it did not grab me. The first section that deals with a group of prehistoric "people" (?ape men and women?) was very difficult to rea... (read more)

 
  "GREAT FUN READ"by ducci (see profile) 04/19/08

Keeps you reading right until the very end. I had a hard time putting this one down. Is a great book for discussion. Questions at the end of book are helpful to get the discussion going. Will look... (read more)
