The Carousel

The Carousel by Juliana Stone

An emotional journey of four women connected by blood, love, loss and time.

Pruett Fontaine is at a crossroads. Divorced, she’s lost herself and is struggling to find her place. When her estranged mother dies unexpectedly she’s drawn back to Louisiana, to a family and town she left behind twenty years ago.

With no choice but to deal with her mother’s estate, a father she doesn’t know anymore, and the woman her mother left them for, she brings her teenage daughter to Sweetwater and collides with a past she’s been running from since she was eighteen.

Her mother’s journals open her eyes to a woman she barely knew, and she can’t outrun the sins of the past. Secrets are exposed, tragedies are revealed, and temptation rears its head over the course of one long, hot Louisiana summer.



Praise for The Carousel

“The writing is beautiful and evocative, and the plot is haunting, totally gripping, and very emotional. The depiction of the diverse and complex relationships set in a backdrop of a Southern small town is very well portrayed.” -Mel from Goodreads

“This is a story of forgiveness, self discovery. Of a grown daughter learning things about a mother she thought never loved her. Also about her relationship with her own teenage daughter and rediscovering herself and what is important for herself. An excellent read.” -Suzaan from Goodreads

“A woman who doesn’t know her own strength trying to find her home and her heart again in a town slow-simmering with secrets…The Carousel has a depth of Southern flavor that had me devouring this story about the grace of reconnection and discovery. I was left feeling hopeful about the power of family and love in overcoming a troubled past.” -Author Barbara J Hancock

“So heartbreakingly good!” – Teri from Goodreads
