“Pamela Chartrand has done it again. The Stone of Time is an outstanding sequel to The Herbarium, giving greater texture and depth to the mystical connection between a 21st-century Paige and a 14th-century behind-the-scenes battle between the Vatican, the Crown, and other forces for control of an ancient sacred text.”
- Patrick

- Tami
