Boyle Abbey

On the outskirts of Boyle, Gwen came upon the ruins of a medieval monastery. As if lost in a dream, she entered through the gatehouse and rambled around. The site was grand and airy with arches spanning rows of stone pillars and fluted columns. High lancet windows looked out on leafy trees. Overhead shone the blue canopy of sky.

(Chapter 14, The Hunter's Moon)

This scene scared the crap out of me. That's one of my fears, getting lost/stuck in the past.
