I read this in grade school so think the book was probably from the 1960s or 1970s.

The (female) protagonist would black out and go back in time. I remember druids and Stonehenge and also there was a deaf/mute girl.


any chance that it was "A Swiftly Tilting Planet" by Madeline L'Engle.

It looks like you can purchase it for slightly more than shipping on Amazon. (link)

    Why do you feel that book matches? Incidentally, An Acceptable Time might be a slightly closer match.

  • I have read the Swiftly Tilting Planet though it has been a while. It has a girl (Meg) and traversing in time including to era of Druids. Madeline also favors use of standing stones (aka star-watching rock) as icons. The book came out in the later 70's so it is in the era. It won a national book award so it would have had some popularity. May 1 '15 at 20:52
  • Swiftly Tilting Planet has Meg's brother, Charles Wallace traveling, and her following with him in a psychic manner. (Kything, per the story.) I don't recall Stonehenge, no a deaf/mute girl, nor does Meg blackout to travel -- she actually has to concentrate to kythe. It's a good story, tho :)
