Summer Solstice


Stockbridge is quite close to Stonehenge, and the number of people passing through in order to get there in time to celebrate the sunrise this year was surprising. Some of our most popular titles are Edward Rutherfurd's volumes on historic Britain. His novel 'Sarum' is a steady seller at The Bookmark. But I still love the Merlin trilogy by Mary Stewart ('The Crystal Cave', 'The Hollw Hills', 'The Last Enchantment') - written in 1970's and equally enjoyable today. There's quite a long section about the role she imagines Merlin to have played in the raising of the standing stones. It's officially SUMMER!
