Old Stone Face


Old Stone Face
Evelynn Gwartney


Inspiration | WINNER

Two young Danish indentured sisters, Maren and Britta, become wise beyond their years, and Maren must decide for herself if forgiveness is real.

Stone Face, an object of imagination, watches Maren, Kirk, Dansel, and Eric get tangled in paradoxes that define their fate and fortune. Are the burdens of personal responsibility, self-control, justice, compromise, temperance, loss, education, forgiveness, healing of mind and body, hardship, and courage worth the efforts for the pursuit of wisdom?
