Dedicated in loving memory to my sister Barbara
Her ways are ways of pleasantness
and all her paths are peace.
Thanks are due to Walter S. Arnold, sculptor, for sharing his knowledge of stone carving techniques; to my agent, Karen Solem, and my editor, Audrey LaFehr, for much patience and support; and especially to Mary Jo Putney, Jacci Reding, Jo-Ann Power, Jean Brashear, Eileen Charbonneau, and Julie Booth for seeing me safely through this one.
