SPOILER ALERT: DINNA read unless you have read "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows".
OK here's the thing. I didn't mean "Why didn't Roger go WITH Jerry through the stones". I meant - Why didn't Roger go through the stones a few minutes after Jerry, in order to get back to his own time. He and Buck were clearly running away the uber-second that Jerry went through. So they didn't want to go through the stones at that point; they wanted to stay in the past. Why? I'm with Tracey on this - I think they're still looking for poor Jem who is wandering around in the mine at this point.
And you know what? I don't necessarily know that the fact that Jerry disappeared near standing stones would have made much of a difference to anyone in the 1940s; stone circles were all over the place in Britain. And most people either didn't know about the superstition, or thought it was just that; superstition. So.. when Claire said she went through the stones, Frank probably never even thought about Jerry's plane being found near stones.
Now HERE'S something odd... last night I watched Tristan and Isolde with James Franco (who I could have sworn was English and is actually from California!) Wow - talk about star-crossed love!!! Truly good flick - I highly recommend if you dig period pieces about the British isles. It was set in the Dark Ages...and the costuming was spectacular.
Haven't read Songs of Love and Death yet? What are you waiting for?!?! :)
