Stone of Destiny by Mary L. Ball is the story of Taylor Harrison, the youngest CEO of Mugful’s Beverage Company. Taylor has only two things in life she really cares about: Mugful’s and her Granny Kay. Taylor strongly believes there is no room or time in her life for romance and love but Granny Kay thinks otherwise. Taylor cannot refuse when Granny asks her to take some time off to oversee the renovation of the family home and search for a missing heirloom ring that has been lost in the house for over fifty years. On her arrival at her childhood home in Liberty Cove, Taylor begins to unpack, settle in, and reminisce about the loving life Granny Kay provided while her parents traveled the world. Taylor soon meets Brent Roberts, the contractor, and though she finds him very attractive, they do not get off to a very good start. Taylor depends on prayer and God to get her through the next few weeks until she can return to Mugful’s and her all-important career. Granny, on the other hand, is praying that Taylor will realize there are more important things in life than work. When Taylor does find the ring and begins to wear it, strange and unexpected dreams and ideas seem to pop into her head.

Mary L. Ball has written a love story that I read and shared from beginning to end with Taylor and Brent. Stone of Destiny is fiction with a very real-life feel. It is Fairy-tale Romance vs. I Am Woman and I Can Do It All. Stone of Destiny is a good Christian love story that deserves a five star rating. I would love to see this become a TV movie. I highly recommend this book.
