The Henge is a story about the members of the Noble Village of the Arts and their neighbors. It has been foreseen and announced in a prophecy; it is time that Concinnity Song and her two brothers bring home the singing stone once it is located. One of her brothers discovers the singing stone at the bottom of a quarry filled with water. The stone holds magical powers. In order to protect the world, the stone must be harvested and moved to a specific location on the night of the solstice. The magical power of music and the stone’s ability to sing makes transporting it easier but no less complicated.
Among some, there is jealousy and a driven need to possess the huge stone. Time is of the essence. Not only is a battle fought but there is a question as to whether the world will survive the storms and fires that will come if they fail in their quest to raise the stone properly.
Devra Robitaille builds the story slowly but with riveting details. Robitaille carefully weaves the story around the characters, developing both with a realism that enables the reader to vividly visualize both through her words. The message of the story is simple yet timelessly true. Robitaille throws in a few twists and keeps building the action and excitement until the last page.
A must read! I have read several of Robitaille’s book and find them thoroughly engrossing and engaging. She knows her audience and knows how her craft well. I enjoy her talented writing and dexterity in telling stories.
