About this title

Synopsis:

"The stones are with us once again. Fresh on the heels of the enormously popular The Wisdom of Stones is the next volume in this inspirational series from former Rear Admiral/Assistant Surgeon General, psychologist, and award-winning photographer, Dr. Brian Flynn. Like its predecessor, Flynn's newest book, The Voices of Stones, is born out of his reflections while wandering the stony shores of Campobello Island in Canada's Bay of Fundy. It continues to explore the intersections of nature, human experience, and the teachings of time.
In the mix of inspiring text and fine photography, Dr. Flynn again is able to communicate the powerful lessons learned in his many years as a trauma psychologist. His life's work has taken him to the locations of some of the country's most tragic events--events such as the shootings at Columbine High School, numerous hurricanes, floods, and fires, the bombings in Oklahoma City, and the attacks of 9/11. In the unique format of The Voices of Stone, Flynn shares with us the lessons learned from decades of being with individuals, families, and communities in their darkest hours. The stones give voice to his wisdom as they speak to all of us.
The Voices of Stones is a unique and compelling journey. In its pages we follow an old man returning to walk stone beaches while we listen in on his dialogue with the stones that cover those beaches. These are not frivolous conversations. The old man asks the stones to speak to him about the pain of loss and the search for hope. In this dialogue the old man finds hope and gains new perspective on the world and his place in it.
This book will resonate with those who face loss of all types. They will be reminded that they are not alone and that recovery and hope is possible.
