He was abandoned as a baby in a graveyard and his mother was never found—that’s all seventeen-year-old Stone Molony knows about his birth. His mysterious background has never bothered him, though, until a tragic accident changes everything.
That day Stone discovers he has the power to heal others. And it starts a frenzy in his town.
Stone sets out to understand his gift by digging into his past, but soon finds that the past—and the truth—is not as liberating as he hoped. As he grapples with the discovery of who he really is, Stone must make a decision: use his gift to offer healing mercy or use it to for vengeance against people who have hurt him and his family.
Set in Kentucky of 1955, Healing Stone explores the effects of racism and corruption hidden in a small town and the redemptive power of hope discovered in one unique boy.
