The book is the personal story of the author, Barbara Carole. She writes in detail about her journey in life so far.
Filled with interesting personal relationships and extremely difficult times, her story will relate to your life in some way. The best part of her story is how she comes to a personal relationship with her God.
Although some of the information written in this book was deeply detailed and personal, the whole of the book was an intriguing story.
I was given this book by christianreviewofbooks.com to review.

I found this book to be very intense - her experiences and the way she writes about them, made it hard to put the book down.Barbara shares openly and honestly about her heartache along the path she took to finding God and includes some very personal details of her life such as an unexpected pregnancy and involuntary abortion at the age of 15, a failed marriage, and her life as a single working mother in Los Angeles.Her travels take her various places around the world and include experiences like living in a Muslim village, later working with Jacques Cousteau and eventually ending up in Los Angeles. I found the book easy to read. In fact, it was hard not to get lost in the story as Barbara's descriptions of her journeys allowed me to picture in my mind exactly where she was, what she was doing and the emotions she felt.

Twelve Stones is the memoir of Barbara, a Jewish woman, who came to know Christ. This book will take you through her life, beginning as a young girl, in a family that she didn't often understand, that was split by the divorce of her parents, through adulthood, the raising of her son, and failed and successful relationships. A true story of a woman's life. Barbara was a very artistic young woman, with a great love of art and literature, a Fulbright scholar who lived in Paris, with her first husband, she explores the artistic side of France and other places in Europe. Always interested in spiritual matters, Barbara was on a quest to find God. Her search took her through many avenues, experimenting in some religions, that are non Christian, studying with friends and her husband trying to find the answers of life. This book is a true story of a woman on a search for God, and it is also a story of a single mother, raising a son on her own after her divorce. Years of being alone, or being with men who were not right for her, have made her cautious. An artistic young woman, Barbara finds herself in the position of supporting her son and herself, she was a natural in many fields, working for many years with Jacques Cousteau, as a writer and researcher. She taught French at UCLA, she worked in advertising and also in accounting, she had many talents and excelled in several fields, during her search for God.Your faith will grow as along with Barbara, you find the same answers she found, in the Bible and through Jesus. You will delight in the stories of her adventures in Europe, and her friendships and acquaintances in the many friends she makes in Europe. Twelve Stones, the book is Barbara's altar to the God who protects His people time and time again, are the words that Barbara ends the book with. I highly recommend this book, it is a wonderful story of a life redeemed by Jesus. 312 Pages

This is a jewel of a book with a great story. A beautiful and earthy writer, Carole pursues an intellectual quest for truth, only to discover a world that needs love even more than truth. I found the multicultural settings just fascinating and the story riveting. It was beautifully constructed and surprisingly poignant - a book I can't forget. I laughed, I cried, I couldn't stop turning the pages. "Twelve Stones" carried me to a spiritual realm I dared to visit for the first time. It was an exciting journey from cover to cover.

Compelling and vivid, Twelve Stones is a story not easily put down. The pages fly through adventures in countries around the world, thoughtful query and powerful emotions as a life transforms and is set free.
