Margaret W. Jones, travel guide and storyteller, has a deep appreciation for beauty and nature. She both feels and “hears” what the earth is saying on her walks through ancient sacred sites and landscapes.
In this elegantly written and deeply personal travel guide, she takes readers on extraordinary walks through known and not-so-known places in Ireland, England, Jordan, Wales, and Scotland. With vivid and compelling details, she has these venerable lands tell their own stories by her willingness to be open to their messages.
As you travel with her, you too may be curious about your own ancestral connections to sacred landscapes. Whether you’re a seeker of unusual destinations or on a spiritual quest, walk with Margaret on hallowed ground, kneel with her before holy wells, and travel ancient Roman roads. Discover the stories of saints, goddesses, and witches. Enter portals and experience what the ancient Celts called “the thin places,” where all soul journeys begin. It is where you hear the whispers of the ancestors.
Margaret’s devotion to learning about life through listening with her heart shines through these stories like a beacon to lost worlds.
