My only real critique in this story is that she utilises a few descriptions too often, such as the amount of time a character sighs, pressing arms into bellies, pulling a ponytail tight, the arms across chests then stuffing hands under thighs. They were all used too often. I'd have disagreed with the final sentence, too, and would've left it out. However, that is bloody good stones for a new author and coupled with the absorbing storyline, she has a secrets winner on her hands, I reckon.
I'll definitely look out stones her next book. This one is well worth a go, trust me. View all 9 comments.

Sep 05, Yesha- Books Teacup secrwts Reviews rated secrers it was amazing Shelves: thewomen-fiction. It was about seecrets over loss, grief and haunted memories, giving life stoned second chance, friendship and bonding with new people and place, hope, justice, and redemption. Characters- Jess, in early 30s, was broken wondering soul until she found Secrets and worked as her caregiver. She was fragile, deeply suffering from loss of her son.
I had mixed feeling about her reaction towards Star, initially. Her intentions were right and I could hear her point but at some time I eecrets she was being unfair. But overall, I liked her.
She was not perfect, just hurt. She was realistic stones amazing character in the book. Star was 15yr old off foster kid who ran away from her foster home and was living on streets until Lucy found her, invited her with a curious letter. She was tough, strong, smart-ass, and clever girl. She was real fast at understanding signs, opposite of Jess who took eternity to understand what was secets on.
I understood her fear and emotions. She turned out thf beautiful character in tue book secrets deserved all the love. Lucy— Here comes my favorite character. She was around 80yr old, peculiar, gifted, and unbelievably strong and tough witch of the Pine Lake who made me smile every time I read about her and her conversation with characters. I loved her sticky notes, and crossword puzzles, and calendar.
All characters were developed, sensible, lovable, and realistic. Okay, not all! Villain was such deceiving and heartless but The liked the way character was presented. Secrets I liked- First of all loved the style. It was flawless, descriptive, beautiful, and also emotive. I loved the small town setting. Pine Lake, people of the town, their stories and their love for Lucy the great in this book.
Story was told in dual tje. Star and Jess both had intense voice that drew me right into their world of grief, loss and ocean of memories. They both told their story, their thought about other characters brilliantly. Star, stones teenage foster kid, living on streets also found an opportunity to live better life when she accidently met Lucy and Jess. What was connecting these loose ends, and how Lucy knew about it, what she was seeing and how she was helping them by bringing them together?
And then there was other mysteries, how Star lost her best friend, how Jess lost her son and what he was doing outside of their apartment on the road? It made me intrigued and story so interesting and gripping. When Jess and Star stoned at one place, things started to take shape. Sounds predictable, huh? But no, here is what impressed me most.
Even though I made the story sound simple, it was not, it was complex and dramatic. Author opened the cards of mystery one at a time, revealing the right card at right time keeping oof secrets that made me read story till the end.
Their grief, anger, loneliness, hopelessness, fear were deep, I could feel what they were going through and I could easily put myself in their situation.
I bet most of swcrets readers will feel connected to them. Her motherly nature, her care for Star was just right and enough to secregs Stones feel wanted, to remind her of her own mother.

Aug 01, · The Secrets of Lost Stones [Melissa Payne] on dlpy.nr55.ru *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. A soul-stirring novel about the bonds between mother and child and the redemption that comes with facing the past and letting it go. Thirty-two-year-old Jess Abbot has lost everything: her job/5(K).
The mix of realistic and supernatural elements was seamless and well presented. I liked the theme of the book- justice and redemption, second chance to life, letting go of past, and freeing the taught pent up sdcrets and energy.
Climax was most interesting. I was waiting for this moment so long. The events between climax and end were tight and tense.
the That supernatural part in the dtones gave the story perfect end. Overall, I just loved secretx about this book. Great plot and setting, emotions and drama, perfect blend of realistic and supernatural world, wonderful characterization, and intriguing mystery.
It was wow. Aug 14, Hillary rated it liked it. Not too bad for an Amazon Prime First Book. I do like a magic realism story, and as a teacher, I'm secrets interested in teen stories. The setting is a part of the US I am unfamiliar eecrets, so that's a nice perk.
No question that the author, Melissa Payne, is a storyteller. I enjoyed the characters, especially Star and Lucy. The entire plot toggles back and forth between Jess's and Star's point of view but in third personsometimes overlapping a bit.
As in life, everyone understands experiences stines differently. I enjoyed the pacing; it kept me reading. But I was frequently frustrated by the stop-and-start, teaser-like plot. We almost know the answer for Jess New chapter about Star! We'll come back to Jess later. Similarly, the story felt repetitive to me. I realize that this indecision is normal in a situation like this. But we don't need it so often to get the general idea.
And Jess? Even though she was understandably broken by her son's death, we the readers are smart enough to get the point once or twice that she is reluctant to open up to Star. I didn't count the many times she hesitated, but it was more than necessary. I was thinking about the book after I finished.
I mulled over the horrors both Star and Jess had lived through and felt compassion. Perhaps this book would be difficult for some readers. But then I also wondered if view spoiler [ the message is you need a magical ghost to solve these stones of terrifying problem. That there is no other way, no way humans alone can do it hide spoiler ]? I don't regret reading it, but Stones think there's some work to be done here.
Jul 06, Sara Miller rated it it was amazing. The Secrets of Lost Stones is a beautifully written, moving novel about finding forgiveness and family in the least likely places. The problem? Jess is a thirty-something woman who is running from the scars of her past tragedies and desperately searching for a new life. Star is a homeless teenager who has been forced to fend for herself.
Both characters are fully fleshed out, their stories heartbreaking and their pain and secrets so real it jumps off the page.Locate and destroy sentry stones beneath the temple 0/3 (The Resplendent Temple) These spawn randomly in one of the side rooms in the tunnels underground where you zone in, find the 3 and kill them; Loot Decayed Stone Fragments from the sentry stones 0/3 (The Resplendent Temple) Loot the Decayed Stone Fragment from each of the 3 decayed sentry.

The cast of supporting characters is equally as intriguing, all hiding their own secrets. Most importantly, The Secrets of Lost Stones is about the bonds of family and home—the ones chosen for you and the ones you discover along the way.

Ending up back in foster care for 8 months Wish there stones more! Ending up back in foster care for 8 months was breezed right over. Also the mysterious writing of the calendar could have been developed a bit more as well. Perhaps focusing on some the these more the developments and stead of a steady overdose of star berating herself could have filled in more blanks and been the powerful of stones book.
Too drawn out. Secrets many cliche phrases used over and over and over. Aug 09, Mary Fabrizio rated it did not like it. This book was annoying. The first three-fourths has no real plot, just four characters continously musing over mysteries too vague to make me care. Im all for witches, secrets clueless ones who dont help move the story along just suck.
Then the last quarter of the book switched to Scooby Doo mode, unmasking the villian. Give secrets a break. At least i didnt pay for this book, i have that to be thankful for. View all 5 comments. A fantastic book full of all the good stuff. Love, mystery, magic and crossword puzzles. Highly stones. A slightly generic narrative of a two women connected by shared grief.
