"The Stone Giver"
by best-selling author Buffy Andrews
We are so honored to acknowledge that Cause a Ripple was the inspiration behind this beautiful story, which is dedicated to Veterans.
"Zara Peede's growing
feelings for her patient, soldier Jack Quinlan, scare the Walter Reed Medical
Center nurse. Jack, a double amputee, is as wounded in spirit as he is in body.
Jack's pain reflects her own grief for her lost brother, a fellow soldier who died
in Afghanistan. Does she truly care for Jack, or are both of them just
searching for someone to hold onto through their pain? To find out, and in
search of her purpose, Zara flees, leaving Jack with only a note and a gift she
doesn't fully understand herself. A stone."
