The Patient Stone

The Patient Stone

by Margaret Olivia Wolfson

Wolfson's re-telling of a classic Persian love story has appeal for young children drawn to fairy tale-quest stories and older children who can appreciate the story's messages about patience and bravery.

A beautiful young woman, Fatima, flees through the desert and finds her way to an enchanted garden and a castle, where she discovers treasure, a sleeping young man, and instructions on how to break the spell that binds the sleeper. Before she succeeds she finds true love and faces temptation, heartbreak, and great trial.
