Olly loves stone circles. Jason loves Olly, and so begins a week’s holiday monument-hopping in Wiltshire. But is it really dangerous to dance among the stones?
When the young couple book into a chintzy, traditional guest-house in rural Wiltshire, they’re set to experience all the delights of a break in the English countryside. For a start, it never seems to stop raining.
Jason doesn’t share his boyfriend’s enthusiasm for ancient monuments – or his fascination with local circle, the Thirteen Maidens – but, as he evaluates what this time means to him, and to Olly, it becomes clear that the stones exert a strange pull over them both.
