Summary: (Kindle Short Reads – 45 minutes) The next Short Story of The Geneva Project: Prequels is here! Sparrow and Journey are best friends, but they couldn’t be less alike. Journey is the quiet brooding type, while Sparrow has always been the bubbly, hopeful one. But when Sparrow’s floating stone seems to bestow its magic upon Journey, it’s Sparrow who starts having doubts. Is the floating stone really magic? Will it bring Sparrow and Journey what they’ve always wanted? Or will they find they had everything they need all along?
Dive into a maritime legend that predates The Geneva Project. Magic, Mermaids, Soul mates and the dilemma of how long to hold onto hope highlight the beginning of Sparrow and Journey’s friendship and how they forged an unbreakable bond stronger than magic.
This short story gives us a glimpse into Sparrow and Journey’s relationship. Fall in love with them all over again when you find out how they first met and why they fiercely protect each other. It will give their epic roles in the 4th and final book of The Geneva Project series even more significance.
5 Star Review: A Story about Hope and Friendship. Christina Benjamin’s latest Geneva Project Prequel, “The Floating Stone” is my favorite short story so far. It’s the story of Sparrow and Journey. Benjamin delivered a tale full of hope and the promise of friendship. I admired Sparrow’s never wavering belief in a fairy tale about magic. She needed to believe in something amidst the grim reality she faced daily. It took Journey pointing out the truth to her—they were family and had each other. She didn’t need to keep pinning her hope on a myth. A big statement in a small package. I highly recommend reading the Geneva Project Prequels. They provide a nice history to the series.
