Editorial Reviews

Along the Way - Janet Hovis

Stories like this simply have me longing for more. I love the history, the scenery, and the passion showed through the delightful characters created by Michael Phillips. If it were possible to demonstrate a standing ovation in a book review, this one definitely deserves it! 
Journey Sojourner - Rachelle Sperling

This series stirred my soul and challenged my thinking while it entertained.  That’s one of the highest praises that I can give to a book.  Would you love it?  I’m not sure.  It really depends on whether you can slow down, breathe deep and read slowly and thoughtfully.  If you can do that then I’m certain that these books will not disappoint. 
Irene's Christian Reviews - Irene Grove

I gave this book 5/5 stars. There was nothing about this book I did not enjoy. I loved the setting, liked most of the characters and the story was intriguing. This book definitely held my attention and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a story that is more then a few chapters long!
Eclectic Reading - Glenajo Shambeck

This story is heart wrenching and beautiful, running the gamut of emotions. I loved it. This is the first Michael Phillips novel that I have read, and I will definitely look for all his others. I would recommend this for people who enjoy a novel that captures their hearts and strives to lift them up while it weaves a beautiful story.
Kingdom Airwaves - Victor Gentile

Mr. Phillips has given us quite a story and it is filled with the wonder of countries that I have not been to in a time before industry took over.  I liked this book and really did not want it to come to an end.

Book Pleasures

From beautifully describing the Welsh landscape, exploring the Celtic history and explaining every-day living and hierarchy of personal status, the book’s consistent reminder of God’s love, forgiveness and truth plays a precious part in reconnecting broken relationships among the characters. With many twists of events, introduction of several interesting, unassuming and heart-felt characters, Phillips intertwines the lives of the Westbrooke manor into a wonderful love story of mercy, compassion and spiritual growth. One is kept guessing if Percy finds his true love, if Florilyn actually marries a man who wants her money, if the dead uncle’s wishes are followed through or is the true treasure the triangle between God and specific people and not a place.

Without a doubt, this author should be added to the bookshelf of exceptional, understanding and wonderful novels where all loose ends are concluded yet there is a yearning for more and more.

My Shelf

Although this is the second book in the author's Green Hills of Snowdonia series, Michael Phillips’ writing had me hooked from the very first page. The author’s excellent writing and attention to detail involved me immediately in the period and setting, and especially the plot. His characters’ motivations and emotions were deftly revealed, including the inner turmoil they each faced. This is a story of young friends who must overcome personal obstacles in their search for growth and, eventually, the love they seek. But it is more than a simple period romance – it’s a return to the beauty of classical writing at its best. Though I have not read the first release in the Snowdonia series, this book stands on its own as an excellent and highly recommended read.

    Michael Phillips in his new book, ¿The Treasure of the Celtic Tr

    Michael Phillips in his new book, “The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle” Book Two in The Green Hills of Snowdonia series published by Barbour Publishing Inc. takes us into the life of Percy Drummond.

    From the Back Cover: A quest for the truth leads home

    Having accepted his uncle’s dying request to restore the missing heir to the Westbrook estate, young Scotsman Percy begins an unforgettable journey. But as his search leads him to Ireland, circumstances in Wales threaten the future.

    Percy’s engagement to beautiful Florilyn Westbrooke hangs in the balance when Florilyn fears they are moving too quickly. Childhood friend Gwyneth Barrie disappears unexpectedly and Percy begins to feel his heart pulled toward the mystifying lass. Meanwhile, cousin Courtenay Westbrooke devises a scheme destined to rip the family and estate apart once he inherits his late father’s title.

    As Percy’s quest continues down many circuitous paths, the key to the mystery seems forever to elude him… unless he can discover the greatest treasure that was within his sight all along. Will he find the true reward before it fades into the misty Celtic past?

    The quest is on. Percy sets out to fulfill his dying uncle’s last request and that involves a journey that takes him through Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. While he is on his quest there is treachery at home as Courtney moves to take the title and destroy the estate. Then the romance between Percy and Florilyn seems to be dissolving while it may be beginning with Gwyneth, however she has mysteriously disappeared. Deceit, treachery, mystery and romance fill the pages of ”The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle”. Mr. Phillips has given us quite a story and it is filled with the wonder of countries that I have not been to in a time before industry took over. I liked this book and really did not want it to come to an end.

    Treasure of the Celtic Triangle by Michael Phillips 5 STARS Thi

    Treasure of the Celtic Triangle by Michael Phillips
    5 STARS
    This is the second book with these characters,but it stands alone. I
    have not read the first one but I am going to read it soon.
    No bedroom scenes or swearing in the book. Lots of caring for
    others.
    The book starts in 1872 Courtenay is the heir to Viscount but he
    will inheirit when he turns 25. In less than 2 years he has come back
    home because he spent almost all of his money. Thier has been no
    money added to his account since his father died. He is very spoiled
    and greedy.
    Viscountess Lady Katherine is the last wife of the Viscount. She is
    mother of Courtenay and Florilyn. She is caretaker of the estate till
    her son turns 25. She has money of her own where their is not a lot
    of money with the lands.
    Florilyn is the younger than her brother. She is engaged to her cousin
    Percy.
    Percy is engaged to Florilyn. Has been coming to Wales to stay with
    his Aunt since age 16 when he kept getting into trouble so his parents
    thought that might help. He is just finshing collage and is thinking he
    wants to go into law. Percy was with his Uncle when he was dying and
    his Uncle asked him to look into a matter of his past for him. If he can
    find something or someone than tell his Aunt Katherine the truth but if
    proof can not be found don't hurt his family
    Florilyn and Percy are reading the same book and writing letters back and
    forth to discuss it. Florilyn soon see herself in the book along with Percy and Gwyneth. She thinks that maybe they got engaged too fast and need to
    pray and think if that is Gods will.
    Percy is hurt but feels it would not hurt to slow down and make sure that they are right for each other. He also has to look into his feelings of the
    missing Gwyneth.
    Stephen was a shepard but Viscountess asked him to manage the estate for her. Stephen is a well read man. He follows God and cares for the families
    that live on the property. He knows how to take care of the horses. Has been friends with Percy and Florilyn. His cousin is Gwyneth and his family don't know where Gwyneth ,her father and Granny moved too.
    Lots of secrets and plans that go behind each others back. It kept my attention in the book. I hated to put it down.
    I was given this book to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
