Laycock launches latest book in Ponoka

Prolific, award-winning Christian author Marcia Lee Laycock of Blackfalds will be launching her latest book, A Tumbled Stone, in Ponoka this week.

Laycock will be signing copies of her novel, which is a sequel to One Smooth Stone, at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Cilantro and Chives Restaurant, (formerly the Blue Ox) at 4213 Hwy 2A.

A Tumbled Stone, published by Word Alive Press, is about Andrea, a young woman dealing with family dysfunction, an unwanted pregnancy, and an obsessive co-worker. God leads her to find employment at the Rocky Road Diner, where she hopes to start a new life. The novel’s predecessor, One Smooth Stone, was winner of the Best New Canadian Christian Book Award.

Laycock has written The Weeping Chamber and 19 other novels, including Spur of the Moment, which won the Award of Merit at Write!Canada Awards in Guelph, Ont. She is also a popular speaker and the author of poetry and short stories.
