The Stone Carvers

The Stone CarversThe Stone Carvers 
by Jane Urquhart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"In 1867 Pater Archangel Gstir is sent by God to the Canadian wilds. Soon the backwoods are transformed into a parish and Joseph Becker, a woodcarver, is brought together with his future wife. Decades later when an architect plans a memorial to the Canadian dead in France, their grandchild Klara must use her family skills - to carve, and to create." --publishers blurb
This is a beautifully written novel that tells the story of a variety of Canadian carvers and how they intertwined with one another over time. This is the second historical novel I have read by Urquart and I plan to read more. She is a Canadian author and her stories of life in the wilds of Canada are full of interesting details and appealing characters.
This book is one of my 20 Books of Summer; it counts toward the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge; and it counts toward the Canadian Reading Challenge.
