Another Delightful Michael Phillips addition not to be missed!
HEATHER SONG By Michael Phillips When you remember a dream what do you do? Do you let it die or do you fulfill it? Marie has just turned 40 when she remembers a dream from long ago. Feeling a pull she packs her harp and heads to Scotland. In Scotland Marie travels until she gets to Port Scarnose which overlooks Moray Firth and the North Sea. Here she finds friendship and love.But in Port Scarnose not all is as it seems. This ancient land is under the power of old superstitions that are perpetrated by Olivia, the hateful younger sister of the Duke. Marie realizes that she is in love with both Alasdair and Iain and flees back to her home in Canada. But you cannot run from love or decisions they follow you. When Marie goes back to Scotland she marries Alasdair and becomes the Duchess. But before they marry Marie insists on a prenuptial agreement so everyone would know she married Alasdair for love and not position and wealth. As Marie becomes more involved in the community she manages to break Olivia's hold on many, but not all. Marie and Alasdair are happy in their life and because of Marie, Alasdair becomes very involved in the community helping those that need help. They open the estate to the people, sharing what they have with those around them. Soon illness rears & as Alasdair is fading Marie receives a letter from her father asking her to come see him as he is dying from cancer. After Alasdair's death Marie returns home and then goes see her father. While they visit Marie realizes that she misjudged her father when she was younger and she was equally to blame for their non-existent relationship. Marie awakening feelings of love for her father result in her staying with him so that he can live and die in his home. But while Marie is away from Scotland Olivia has been busy. She has moved into the castle and is establishing her center of power. With pleas for her to return to Scotland to stop Olivia and with developments in Alasdair's estate that seem to leave everything to Marie she heads back to Scotland. But Marie must sneak into the castle in the dead of night so as to stop Olivia from locking her out until the suit goes to court. But Olivia is not finished trying to lay claim upon the estate and in fact attempts to kill Marie,Olivia is the main suspect when it is discovered that Marie is missing. Marie is locked deep beneath the castle with another of Olivia's victims. Can Marie survive or is buried too deep to hope escape? Publisher provided Digital copy for review purposes.

This is an excellent read, especially if you like a Scottish slant to a story. It would be best to read "Angel Song" first as "Heather Song" is a sequel to it. Both books are very good and I would recommend any books by Michael Phillips. It would probably be good for a book club as there are a lot of topics that could bring some interesting discussion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
