No Stone Unturned The Carl and Rosie Story

by Rosemarie Stone

While reading the book title, I thought to myself, let's get this over and done with. Another boring book to read, especially being a University student and having to do a book report while battling other courses at the same time. Boy was I wrong! Little did I know that reading this book was going to change my entire outlook. This book tells a real life story about a professor of the University of the West Indies who finds out that he has AIDS and has given his faithful wife AIDS as well. The book starts off painting a typical family, and then moves to the impact of the dreaded disease on the family, friends and society. It gives the reader insight into the process of dealing with discrimination and the death of one's sexual partner even as the persona gains courage, strength, real family and friends and discovers what true love is. The Author Rosemarie Stone tells it all. Rosemarie bring the important message that it can happen to you since HIV/AIDS is not racial, it does not discriminate, it does not care whether you are rich or poor IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU! This book it worth much more than the price tag.
