the story

about a pebble

Renowned Irish Author Bryan McMahon wrote the story The Pebble for inclusion in an anthology of stories for young adults.

As a friend and mentor of Elizabeth O'Carroll (nee Chute), Dr. McMahon based the story on the explanation Elizabeth provided for the 'interesting pendant' she was wearing during one of her visits from Canada.

Bryan was enchanted that a pebble taken from The River Feale in Kerry, Ireland, as a token of early love, was to be made into a pendant in faraway Calgary, Alberta by 'The Goldsmith' jeweler years later.
