Editorial Reviews

Bookloons
"[A Perilous Proposal] touches the heart and helps us to understand the horror behind prejudice and how it affects us all. The characters' ability to trust in God and His protection offers hope and encouragement."
Cheryl Cecil
"Set during the Civil War, Michael Phillips' novel A Perilous Proposal challenges readers with the question of whether a slave can be free within himself.... I can recommend this book to adults and mature teens who are seeking to discover nuggets of truth about relationships and maturity, even when they are wrapped in a fictional story."
Christian Book Previews.com
Romantic Times
"The hodgepodge of perspectives and long conversations interspersed with tense action work because readers will care deeply about the characters."
Aug. 2005
Children's Literature
Set in the mid 1800s, this is the story is of a young black man who is a member of a slave family in the South. Jake's mother is killed while trying to help him perform his chores for their white owner. When freed, young Jake sets out to find his father, who was sold when Jake was only a child. Believing the lies he was told about his father, Jake is filled with anger toward the father he has not seen in many years. He is saved from death by a man named Micah Duff, who is serving in the Union Army. Micah nurtures the body and feeds the soul of this lost young man. Jake is not ready to listen quite yet, though. He leaves his friend behind and travels to the Carolinas where his dad is supposed to be living. He has no idea that his life is about to change forever. He not only finds his father-alive and well, working in a livery—but he also meets his future bride, Mayme. Mayme is a black girl who lives with Katie, a white girl in North Carolina. Their families have been killed, and they are struggling to keep Katie's family plantation from being repossessed by the bank. With the help of Jake, his father, and two long-lost uncles of Katie, the plantation is saved from the bank and opportunists; and Jake discovers that his heart is big enough for everyone. This is a good book to discuss in U.S. History classes. 2005, Bethany House Publishers, Ages 14 to 18.

    Rip off

    I normally read the reviews. But of course since I didn't I wasted $5 to get 260 of 285 pages that were mostly recaps of the first 3 books!! What a rip off!

    Highly recommend

    Love this series and the earlier series called Shenandoah Series: they each continue the story from the first one (Angels watching over me ) to the last one (Miss Katie's Rosewood). I love the historical christian themes, it draws you in with each book, couldn't put them down and eagerly wanted to continue reading the story with each new book.

    A rousing exciting inspirational tale

    During the Civil War slave child Jake detests his yoke and though young shows open signs of rebellion against his master in spite of the warnings from his father. Jake¿s anger explodes when his dad vanishes as he assumes foul play. Out pf control, he kills a white drifter who he caught molesting his mother. Knowing that in the Confederacy, no black can get justice when a white is involved, Jake runs away................... Confederate soldiers capture Jake, but he escapes and joins the Union army. There he meets a kind mentor, Micah, a black soldier, who counseled the lad to let his anger go. Holding a grudge, he deserts the army heading to North Carolina where he is shocked to meet up with his father and a young black woman Mayme who he falls in love with. Even in this southern state Jake goes out of his way to alienate whites who burn crosses on their lawn................... Using the Civil War as a backdrop, Michael Phillips provides a rousing exciting inspirational tale that makes a strong case that racism destroys everyone even the innocent. Jake is a fabulous protagonist struggling with devastating blows to his heart. He knows he must forgive his father for deserting his mother and him, but finds it difficult to do so in spite of the encouragement of several women including Mayme to let it go so that he can move on. The cast makes the tale as readers will obtain a taste of how crippling hatred is............. Harriet Klausner

    A wonderful book and series. I loved them all.

    This series has become my favorite, and I read them with such enjoyment. I had forgotten what it was like to bury my nose in a book and rarely come up for air. With these books, I have become lost in the written word again. Thank you Mr. Phillips for such a great Christian series of books.

    I have enjoyed Michael Phillips' books since my daughter and I read the Secret of the Rose series. I also enjoyed Shenandoah Sisters series, although it was purely escape fiction. The few parts of Civil War history that were accurate were interesting in that Mr. Phillips can take such creative license and weave a wonderful story. I have been somewhat disappointed in The Carolina Cousins books so far. There is many episodes rewritten from the previous series. I would say that is good for readers who have not indulged in the Shenandoah Sisters, but I felt like the book itself has been a bit disappointing since I have already read the first. I have recommended these books to some of my middle school students as good escape fiction. I will continue to do so. Mr. Phillips writes good, wholesome books, something that is so lacking in literature today. He also bases much of the plot in historical content. That I can truly appreciate.

    I have already the previous books that started this series and I just love them. I love how Mary Ann and Katie over come it all. It is a hard time to look back on the cruelty that happened. But this family showed the world a thing or too.
