Brilliant and intense.
Diana grew up caring for her schizophrenic father and when her own son, Jason, is diagnosed as suffering from the same affliction, she devotes herself to the quietly heroic responsibility of caring for a child who will never be ordinary. A fact that Mark, her husband, finds hard to accept.
Perhaps this is why, when tragedy strikes, Diana can't believe the coroner's conclusion that her son's death was accidental. As she throws herself into building a case against her husband, she turns to her brother, David and his family for support.
As the seductive qualities of Diana's manic energy become impossible to ignore, David has reason to begin to fear for his own daughter's safety and sanity.

Comments about The Murmur of Stones:
This was a completely consuming book, the sort I would wake up to read in the middle of the night. It was so hard not to jump ahead, as I desperately wanted to find out what was going to happen.
