A House of Light and Stone
Growing up is never easy, but for young Duffy Chavez, whose childhood is anything but innocent, the journey is particularly painful.
Swimming against the tides of her troubled family as well as her own cultural identity, Duffy struggles with the cards she has been dealt. Buoyed up by the belief of a select few, she strives to achieve the kind of self-knowledge that comes so naturally to the ‘real girls’ all around her. As gaps in the narrative begin to fill, and the truth surrounding Duffy’s birth is unearthed, her determination to succeed is rendered all the more astounding.
Told in uncompromising clarity through the eyes of a child, A House of Light and Stone is at once full of heartbreak and hope, offering respites of warmth in the coldest of places.
“Runyon tells her stories with an unashamed truthfulness–what seems to be almost an unaware truthfulness. The work is edgy, but never for the sake of edginess. At the same there exists a compelling emotional accessibility. If you are willing to risk reading, this will challenge you, capture your attention, and dare you to continue till the very last.” – Catherine Ryan Hyde, acclaimed author of Pay It Forward
