This meditative, perceptive account pairs the experiences of two women, one American and one English, who—a decade apart—each visited the standing stones of Carnac on the Brittany coast and seemed to receive messages from them. Written without consultation from one another, their chronicles share the aura and ambiguity each one experienced among the megaliths, while arguing that the teachings they gathered can provide much-needed guidance in today's troubled world.
"Both authors stress that we must restore the world's balance between rational and holistic thinking, and the stones can play a role. Intelligence in some unknown form may be trying to reach us ... what the authors perceive as the 'frozen music' of megalithic sites."—Richard Wright
