Publisher's Summary

Despite her misgivings, child psychologist Lynn McLeod can't ignore the plea to help 10-year-old Jilly Asche, the daughter of her ex-husband, Stephen. But immediately upon her return to Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, Lynn is drawn subtly into the lives of everyone in the secluded household: Stephen, now an enigmatic stranger; Julian, a mesmerizing family friend who challenges Lynn's ideas of life and death; and Jilly, the beautiful lost child burdened by a terrifying and deadly secret.

The danger that threatens both Stephen and his daughter soon closes tightly around Lynn. And all the while, the soft, hypnotic sound in the wind - the eerie yet beautiful music of the Singing Stones - lures Lynn into a realm of mystery, murder, and dormant passion...and perhaps to the key to her own destiny.

I Love Phyllis Whitneys Books

I Loved the Reading.

I have always loved reading Phyllis Whitney's books since my freshman year in high-school. My eyes are older now... But my ears are great. I thoroughly enjoyed listening The Singing Stones. It is so wonderful to be able to enjoy the story again.

Surprisingly Good Story & Narration

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and the performance by the narrator. The story is unique and has twists that aren't contrived or predictable. With a wide array of character types, the story drives on toward a very interesting and surprising conclusion. This novel definitely doesn't disappoint.

I had never read any novels that were written by this author, so I'll be seeking more by her because I very much enjoy her writing style. I recommend this novel to anyone.

Liked it

I enjoyed this book and the storyline. One thing that is a little disruptive is the narrator also has several other books for this author so it is strange to hear another character voice in this book
