THE STONE HOUSE is the story of a young Irish family in the mid 19th Century seen through the eyes of 14-year-old Christina Dobbins. The family is forced to flee Ireland because the hot-tempered father gets himself in serious trouble with the law. They make their way to Canada West via a ‘coffin ship’. The family barely survives the first winter, but when tragedy strikes, they must fall back on their own courage and determination. We watch as Christina matures in confidence and grace to become a lovely young woman in the military of Perth, Ontario.
