This was an interesting book but I cannot say its good. The ending is weak.

Basically, Ian Graham, a newscaster who recently lost his job, takes on a position of doing investigative journalism and his first report is from Rosyln Chapel, a historic chapel. While in Roslyn, Graham hears a humming sound that no one else hears. While talking to Rob Madison, a guide, he learns some of the history of the chapel and somehow hits his head. When he awakes, he has been sent back in time to the body of his

Ian Graham, an unemployed television interviewer, gets a job offer to do a documentary on the mystery of Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. Ian takes the tour to get a feel for the location. As the guide is talking about the mysterious stone carvings during the tour, Ian starts to hear a humming noise that intensifies as he goes farther.

Not only does Ian hear a humming noise as the guide speaks, he thinks he is hear

Ian Graham, a British television personality, was visiting Rosslyn Chapel to film a documentary when he was transported to Spain in 1307. Perhaps you remember Rosslyn Chapel from the end of The DaVinci Code, if so prepare yourself for more Templar nonsense. The reader follows Graham on his journey across medieval Europe and looks on as he collects biblical treasures such as the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail until he reaches Paris and meets Grand Master De Molay. At that point, an averag ...more

A drift in a sea of Templar inspired fact and fiction and inundated with Dan Brown wannabe's the one that surfaces triumphantly is Walter Hunt's A SONG IN STONE. Inspired by an unusual tour of Roslyn Chapel Walter set out to write a novel that drew on his love of history and Masonic background. SONG is however also replete with memorable characters who grow and change as they are put through a time of trials; a wry sense of humor even when things are grim without diffusing the moment and a story ...more

A rather enjoyable read. Imagine going to work one day and during the course of normal events find yourself thrust 500 years in the past? I enjoyed the journey Hunt took me through though I leave it up to you if he satisfies at the conclusion. If you enjoy mystic journey's and delving into histories unknown traditions you'll enjoy this one.

Overall I liked the book, but honestly it was a slow read for me. I could never quite get swept away in the story line, though I wanted to finish it. The book to me was along the lines of The DaVinci code -- though different enough that it was interesting, and didn't feel as if I had already read it.
Steve
Oh no another Templar's book. This book was slow to start, but the story line kept getting better. Complex story of a 21st century man sent back to 1307 and specifically right before the King of France had Templars killed October 13, 1307.
Candace
A little time travel, a little Crusaders, a little Templars, some old old old cathedrals, monks and murderers. And essential music only one man can hear. Very well written, engaging read!
Rachelle
Interesting in that a modern day man gets transported back to the time of the Templars. Good for people who are interested in learning more about Rossyln chapel, a fascinating place.

I was privileged to blurb this book from and advanced reader copy. Meticulously researched and lyrically written about a subject dear to my heart. Heartily recommended

Walter's best published work. Ask him about mesmerists.
