Publisher Comments:

Two Americans, Richard and Sara Everton, are the only foreigners in Ibarra. They live among people who both respect and misunderstand them, and gradually, the villagers--at first enigmas to the Evertons--come to teach them much about life and the relentless tide of fate.

I just finished this book tonight and I enjoyed it, but, for some reason I kept waiting for more to develop. I think it shows that life goes on with its ups and downs even in a small rural place like Ibarra. That life in a community is usally all the same no matter where one goes. That people can grow from their experiences and make themselves stronger in adversity.

Stones for Ibarra tells small tales (wonderfully told) of life in a village/town in Mexico. An American couple move to Ibarra, the husband having inherited the local mine. They arrive knowing that time is limited due to his illness. What this book provides are insights into lives that are common to all and very moving for the reader.
