PRAISE FOR THE STONE CRADLE BY PATRICE CHAPLIN:
"There are clues and references in her work that could lead to
unlocking our own personal enigmas and lead us to find in ourselves
what it means to be human.... It is a truly life-affirming book and
its value inestimable."
"This book is about...the unforeseen in one woman's life that
has given her a new responsibility for which she has been prepared
and is now ready."
