Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A wonderful Historical Fiction novel written from the heart. 25 de agosto de 2013
Por R.M. Prioleau - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I was really excited to read this book upon its release from a debut author, and I must say, it was an amazing read that I couldn't put down.

The story starts out slow-paced up until chapter 7, as much of it is backstory and engrossing the reader of the day-to-day life of Nikaia and her family, as well as the lives of other people in the town of Fort Yale, B.C. where much of the story takes place. Not much really going on pacing-wise, but the author does a great job in going into details about what life was like for people of various races and creeds during the 1860s Gold Rush era.

After chapter 8, however, the story's pacing immediately quickens and things begin to fall in place. Nikaia, a 16 year-old girl, is on a mission to save her family, and attempt to clear her father's name from a serious crime. She ends up finding help in some unlikeliest of places as a result. The story becomes an instant page-turner with action, mystery, some heart-wrenching moments, and even a bit of love. My only complaint about the story was Nikaia's younger sister, Klima. It was difficult to determine her age because sometimes she acts older like a teen (such as handling a boat by herself), and most times she acts like a small child (such as asking a bunch of trivial questions to adults). Whereas Nikaia maintained the same maturity level as a 16 year-old throughout the book.

'Stone & Silt' reads a lot like a cozy mystery, and the author does a great job in dropping a few hints here and there which builds up for the end as you try to guess 'whodunit'.

The author presents some great imagery of the Fraser Canyon during the Gold Rush years as Nikaia's family travels to and from Fort Yale to Lytton. We also learn a lot about the First Nations people (or 'Native Indians' as the author refers in the book) and their rich customs.

'Stone & Silt' is a story for all ages that also leaves behind a great message of the importance and value of family. This story was written from the author's heart, and it shows.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Unforgettable! 1 de dezembro de 2013

Stone and Silt is the kind of book I didn't want to stop reading, and one which I missed once through reading. Mr. Chute obviously did thorough research of the history of the place and time. His craft of storytelling left me anxious to continue reading, always wondering where the journey of the characters would lead. Stone and Silt is a book suitable for any audience. It was an unforgettable story, told with a beautiful voice.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A First Rate Page Turner for Young Adults! 2 de dezembro de 2013
Por David C Jennings - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Well constructed story line and characters. My first exposure to the Canada's First Nations and their interactions with Western culture in the late 1800's. Enjoyed the cultural interactions of the young adult characters while being treated to a well told mystery in a unique geographic and historical setting. Would highly recommend this to any young adult on your holiday gift list!
Looking forward to Mr. Chute's next effort.

This was such a lovely, insightful story. There was no doubt that the author thoroughly researched the time period the story was set in. The characters were well-developed and the story line was well thought-out. Kudos to Mr. Chute.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A engrossing story 25 de abril de 2015

This is a book you won't want to put down until the exciting end. Wonderful recounting of history circa 1860 in B.C. I was swept up at the native healing rituals and weeping with them over their lost sister. Don't miss this one.
