ABOUT THE AUTHOR

While studying at Humboldt State University in the early 70’s, Michael Phillips and his wife, Judy, established the One Way Bookshop—a small Christian bookstore catering mainly to other students. Now the bookstore is an important part of the Christian community in Humboldt County, and Phillips is one of the country’s most respected and prolific Christian authors.

Phillips’ long publication history includes over twenty non-fiction books, including biographies of Victorian author George MacDonald and Olympic athlete-turned-Congressman Jim Ryun. But he’s best known for his fiction—and is considered one of the major founders of the Christian fiction genre. In the past two decades, Phillips has written more than sixty fiction titles, many of which have been best-sellers. Altogether, his fiction, nonfiction, and devotional writings have sold over seven million copies worldwide.

    A touching novel about war, love and God

    This is the first book I have read by this author. I bought it more under the premise of it being a love story with over-tones of WWII. I didn't realize how deep it would get into God, life, and faith but...it was a pleasant extra to an already full story. I think anyone interested in history will enjoy this book as it gives the basics (most accurately from what I can tell) but, doesn't get so bogged down in details that it looses the essence of the real story...the story of courage in the face of great evil, strength in times when everything and everyone is against you and the joy of finding love, faith, family and God in our surroundings if we, but look for it. As did Sabina, Matthew, The Baron and others. I think I got into the story and the content more and more as I read this book. As others noted, the characters came alive in this story - even the bad ones - and there were times you could feel the fear, heartache, sadness, passion and love everyone was feeling in the story. They weren't just characters on a page, they came alive for a few hours each time you read a few chapters. I am glad the story does not end and continues in 'A Rose Remembered' which I am 1/2 way through now. So far...so good. I suggest this book for people of all ages, sex and religion. It is generic enough that anyone with a belief will find something of interest. A surprising jewel of a book I did not expect to find and was happy to do so! Happy reading.

    An Excellent Series!!

    This series is one of my favorite fiction books by one of my favorite fiction authors! I was disappointed when I finished the last book in the series. The setting is historical (pre-World War II and throughout World War II) and takes place in Poland, Germany and the surrounding countries. The book is suspenseful, very involved and inspirational. I appreciate the Christian-based nature of it and think that many Christians could be strengthened by reading it.

    Wonderful reading

    This book opened up my eyes to that personal relationship to god by looking for him in all living things, such as a rose.

    This book iz AWESOME!!

    I read this book a week ago, and I'm in the sixth grade. Ever since I've read it, I've been really interested in things about WW II. And it's not just that, it's that it seems soo, real. I mean, it's like Sabina and Matthew really existed, and that they still might've both lived if not for the events in the last book.

    Great Historical Novel!

    I love historical novels and this is probably one of the best that I have ever read. I love how Mr.Phillips ties in history with personal lives and how his characters grow in God's grace and Bible knowledge every step of the way. Great book for people who would like to read about WWII from the German side!

    Intruging, interesting, and exciting

    I liked the book. It took me a while to get into it but once I was I was attached. Taken in World War 2 it makes you feel like a part of that time.
