"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it." –Michelangelo

So far, it’s taken 48 years to build the medieval Cathedral of St. Stephens, and there’s only the west tower to finish. Laurel has grown up with the cathedral as her playground because her father is the architect overseeing the building project. She loves the massive stones and the stone masons and sculptors, especially the odd men who carve gargoyles.

But the new priest decides there’s no money to finish that last tower.

With her father’s job threatened and her beloved cathedral unfinished, Laurel is willing to risk everything to find a treasure large enough to build.

Impossible. She needs a miracle.

This is a rich, surprising, and sometimes disturbing historical tale of gargoyles, and those who carve the creatures from solid stone. There's darkness in this cautionary tale, that nevertheless pulls off not one, but two miracles, and brings Laurel home to stay.

Follow Laurel's harrowing journey toward miracles.

For SEL discussions, this book is great for identity, fear and anxiety, and overcoming challenges.
