Debut author Sally Chambers shows much promise with The Stonekeepers. This story is intriguing. Secret entrances, hidden artifacts, ancient history preserved through generations--it's all there.

Lexi Christensen is drawn to an abandoned mansion, and devotes her energy to save it from demolition--not realizing the amazing ties she has to this place. Finding a hidden message that had unknowingly been in her possession for most of her life, she is startled to discover that she is intricately linked

I thought I knew where the story was going—a sweet, coming-of-age story of eighteen-year-old Lexi as she discovers her own past while exploring an old house. Lexi is likeable and inspires our sympathy for her feelings of the angst and restlessness that comes when taking the first steps of independence and autonomy. She is searching for something that she can’t quite describe, and her frustration over the romance of her best friend with the boy she secretly loves adds further conflict. However, t ...more

Sally Chambers has given readers a delightful experience in her book The Stonekeepers. Perhaps a Young Adult genre, it certainly can be enjoyed by the 'mature' reader too. Lexi, 18, is determined to save the crumbling and somehow familiar mansion, Northbrick, from its soon scheduled destruction. Little does she realize the mystery and adventure she and her two best friends, Jenni, and Ridge, will unleash when they decide to explore the abandoned building. Old letters, ominous warnings, and odd h ...more

When I agreed to review “The Stonekeepers”, I was unfamiliar with the author and took a chance because I thought the book might be interesting. I did not realize that teens and young adults seem to be its targeted audience. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

From the very beginning the author sets the perfect tone with a mysterious old house that seems to reach out to Lexi Christensen. When she learns that the house is scheduled to be torn down by the city, she and her two best friend

Mystery and romance. What else could one want in a story? Well, The Stonekeepers definitely fits those categories, but it doesn't stop there. It's a sit on the edge of your seat, can't put it down until you finish kind of book. There's mystery, romance, adventure, all entwined with a spiritual message. You will get sucked into Lexi's quest immediately and it will keep you like that up to the very end. The Stonekeepers is one you won't want to miss out on.

Oh my goodness, did I ever enjoy this book. It was so hard to put down. I really enjoyed the parts that talked about Lexi hearing God's voice. She loved hearing His voice and asking Him for protection and guidance in the nitty, gritty parts of her life. I also enjoyed reading about the Muslim and Jewish people who had visions of Jesus.

This book had me from the beginning when Lexi found the hidden compartment in her old trunk. This suspense continued through the whole book. What can I say - I jus

The Stonekeepers is an excellent book that can be enjoyed by all ages. It has the right amount of suspense and mystery along with faith and love to keep you wanting to read more. There are old buildings, letters, mysterious happenings, and travel to the Middle East. It all comes down to trust in the end.
I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

I read this book in a day. It is a very easy and enjoyable read. You will love the matchmaking mothers, the main characters and the description of Puerto Rico.

This book is a lesson in surrendering to God. The visual descriptions in the book helped you to connect nature to God. I loved when Teresa was looking at the beautiful flowers and she commented on how they do not have to worry about anything. God was reminding her that he has not forgotten about her needs as a widow or as his daughter. He

I took longer to read this book than planned because I was reading three others at the same time. When I finally jumped into it, I was pleased with the fast-paced plot and the way Sally Chambers unfolded the story. She wrote it so that I wanted to turn the page to see what would happen next. I'm wondering if this book was written for the YA market as the MC was younger. I think someone in that same age category would love it more and grab onto the page-to-page action. I was especially impressed ...more
