The Stone House Legacy by Wanda DeHaven Pyle is the story of Cora, Tessa and a stone house. In 1866 Cora moved with her husband to begin a new life and establish a settlement. This was at the end of the Civil War. The settlement did not last long-drought, illness and fire played a major role in the disbanding. A large stone house had been built in the settlement and it was the one thing still standing when Cora left. Forward to 1966-Tessa and her husband visit what remains of the settlement to begin a Center for Leadership. Tessa finds a small trunk in the stone house - and there begins the story of two women and the struggles each had in their respective places in time. Cora's journal becomes Tessa "light" at times and enables her to cope and understand the things she is going through.|
The Stone House Legacy - a fictional historical account of times of the post Civil War era and the tumultuous 1960's. Both of the women are married to pastors, and not only have to face the usual trying times of pastors wives, but both are married to strong men who are called to follow their beliefs. Cora and Tessa's lives run parallel much of the time - and only the journal can attest to Tessa the things Cora endured.
Simon (Tessa's husband) immediately becomes caught up in the Civil Rights Movement--life for he and Tessa change dramatically. Pyle has done a great job recounting the opinions and stances of the different sides throughout the Movement. The reader will be enthralled with the actions of not only Simon, but other church leaders and members.
The Stone House Legacy is the first of a trilogy. Watch for #2 The Steel Canyon Legacy.
