If you have never read a novel by Michael Phillips, you are truly missing out. From Across the Ancient Waters is historical fiction of the very best kind, and is the first book in The Green Hills of Snowdonia series. Percy Drummond arrived in Scotland as a rebellious and angry teenager. A preacher''s kid, he wanted nothing to do with the church or the beliefs of his parents. He soon discovers more than he can imagine about himself, about God, and even about his upbringing. What he discovers that first summer away from home will set the course for the rest of his life.
What I love about Michael Phillip''s writing is the deep character development. I felt like the characters in this book became like best friends, and I didn''t want the relationship to end. Rich in history, filled with breathtaking imagery and scenery of the hills and mountains in Scotland, I feel like I have been there for an extended vacation. I can imagine riding on horseback, exploring the crystal clear mountain lakes and hidden caverns in the hills, right alongside Percy and his new found friends.
The conclusion of The Green Hills of Snowdonia titled The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle will be published in August 2012, and is at the very top of my summer wishlist.--Janet Hovis"Along the Way" (01/09/2012)
Phillips tells delightful stories that reflect his astute study of human nature and his passion for words.--Kris Wilson"CBA Retailers" (02/01/2012)
As I began reading "From Across The Ancient Waters", my first novel on my new Kindle Fire, I realized that the very first "Christian" novel was "The Heather Halls of Stonewyke". This was soon followed by the "Corrie Belle Hollister" series and many of Mr. Phillips other excellent works. Being a girl of fourteen and new to the faith I am ever so glad that these stories were available. All of Michael Phillips' story lines are interesting and extremely thoughtful. Questions of faith are posed and discussed in gentle and considerate ways, never in a harsh or forceful manner.
"From Across The Ancient Waters" keeps these characteristics alive. The young Percy, sent away to hopefully reform his bad ways, finds faith, friendship, and adventure in the Welsh countryside. The characters draw you in so that you feel the pangs of young love and the heartache of losing someone you care for. I was not ready for this story to end and am happy to know book two will be out in a few months. The only thing missing was a pronunciation key for the Welsh words; I'm a little rusty on my Welsh.--Tracie Coffey"Coffey Reader" (01/31/2012)
