“In Celtic religion, Stonehenge was a temple to the god of healing. It was built more than three thousand years ago, and do you know why it remains today, Rowena? Because it was built with a sense of purpose, stone by stone, like the pyramids in Egypt or like the Aztec towers in Mexico.
-- Like our abbey?
Yes, my dear, yes, like our abbey.”
