about

The Alphabet Stones is about three families, one of them supernatural, and how they intertwine-with each other and with the land, a moody eastern Ontario of communes, music festivals and cedar swamps; stony farms and muddy rivers. This is a story about enchantment-how the land enchants us, how we enchant one another-why it's necessary that we do, and dangerous when we don't. Like 14 year old Jody, we learn not just the names of trees and stars and birds, but also of "the gate between worlds," a place she stumbles across in a forgotten back pasture, both ordinary and powerfully mysterious. "Quietly beautiful, *The Alphabet Stones* is magical and ethereal yet also deeply evocative of, and grounded, in place." -Jan Thornhill "Ursula Pflug's writing is the kind you want to carry around with you for those days when it feels like you're living in a strange and incomprehensible world." -Mathew Cheney
