Echoes Among the Stones

Jaime Jo Wright‘s latest novel, Echoes Among the Stones, releases on December 3. Like her previous work, Wright’s latest novel weaves the stories of two women across generations, exploring how a person’s reaction to tragedy can affect the trajectory of life.

In the small town of Mill Creek, Wisconsin, a murder has gone unsolved for decades. The loss of her dear sister has consumed Imogene (Genie) Grayson’s life for over 70 years. Unable to move beyond her grief, Imogene does everything she can to track down her sister’s killer. When the case is closed, unsolved, she recreates the crime scene and lives it over an over again, hoping that in remembering, she’ll find some clue that will finally put an end to the event that changed her life.

70 years later, Genie’s granddaughter, Aggie Dunkirk, is also dealing with grief–the loss of her mother to cancer has altered her life, causing her to lose focus…and her job. Heading back to Mill Creek at the request of her grandmother, Aggie takes a job at the local cemetery mapping the graves. When an unmarked grave presents a mystery to solve, Aggie and the archeologist assigned to the task, Collin O’Shaughnessy, find themselves uncovering clues to the 70 year old mystery of Genie’s sister.

As in Wright’s other novels, the plot and the intersection of the two women’s lives across the years captures the imagination of the reader. More than just a ‘good story,’ this novel asks readers to delve deeper and consider how their own grief might be holding them captive. At the end of the novel, Genie tells Aggie, “Let the good Lord take care of your aches and heal you. So that you don’t miss out on the good–on the blessings He hides in the middle of all that hurting.” We all have a choice…to live in the “shadoes of grief and longing,” or to move on–to walk in the path that God has set before us. The story of Genie and Aggie challenges readers to choose to heal as we see the devastation the choice to remain in the hurt brings.
