Publisher's Summary

The follow-up book to Mrs. Darley's Pagan Whispers. In Mrs. Darley's Moon Mysteries each chapter is littered with poetry and thought provoking "Moonlight Tales", involving the charismatic Mrs. Darley and a selection of her fascinating friends as they impart their lunar knowledge to the author. Finally, the book invites the listener to encounter a Divine essence beneath the beauty of a moonlit sky.
Mrs. Darley's Moon Mysteries by Carole Carlton is a celebration of all aspects of the Moon, from her phases and movement, to her influences both on the earth itself and those who live upon her. Her history, geology, myths, legends and effectiveness in magical workings are explored as each chapter unfolds. Explores the myths, legends and folklore that have, over millennia, become associated with the Moon as well as its place in literature and sacred texts.
Very occasionally, we step out under a Moonlit sky and become bewitched by the beauty which confronts us as we stand and gaze at Earth's only satellite. More frequently, however, we are entombed within our homes and consumed by satellite TV, with very little thought given to the movement and effects of our enigmatic celestial visitor.

I have ! I love her voice, it's so engaging and relaxing at the same time. She has captured the essence of Mrs Darley perfectly. She brings the book to life. I love that you can search audible for narrators as well as authors and books, so I plan to listen to all her books.
