The Girl, the Gypsy, and the Gargoyle

by Darcy Pattinson
“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” —Michelangelo But what if an unscrupulous sculptor could trap someone inside a block of stone, just so he could carve them? Master Gimpel, a deformed stone carver, intrigues Laurel and Jassy, her gypsy friend, when he offers a path to untold riches. Master Gimpel explains that his Troll’s Eye, a red jewel, is a doorway into the stone world where a treasure cave awaits. From the moment Laurel looks through the Troll’s Eye, she and her gypsy companion enter a dangerous race for their lives. There’s darkness in this cautionary tale, that nevertheless pulls off not one, but two miracles, and brings Laurel home to stay.
