About the Author

Michael Phillips is one of the renowned Christian novelists of our time. He has penned sixty fiction titles of great variety—historical and contemporary; romance, mystery, and thriller. The breadth of Phillips’s audience is a testimony that his writing is universal in its appeal, with thought-provoking spiritual themes known as his “spiritual tunes.” Phillips’s name is often linked with Scotsman George MacDonald, the man whose books helped lead C.S. Lewis to Christianity. Along with his own writing, Phillips’s passion is to make the links between MacDonald and Lewis more widely known. Phillips and his wife, Judy, divide their time between homes in California and Scotland.

I highly enjoyed everything about this book except one thing. It may be personal preference, but I greatly dislike reading all the way to the end of a book only to have so much left unanswered. I know that there will be sequels but I really would prefer not to have SO MUCH left hanging until the next sequel. Maybe if I knew before I purchased the book, then I could wait until all of the sequels were out.

From Across the Ancient Waters by Michael Phillips 4 STARS I actually read the second book of the series first. So a lot of the mysteries or decisions I knew the answers and it answered the things they talked about in the second. I would recommend reading Across the Ancient waters first than read The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle. I enjoyed both books. They do talk about Gods Love and doing right. To me it just talking about doing the right thing and being a good nieghbor. The book starts with a pirate ship going down in a storm with two surviviors but not for long. Gwyneth is a young girl who is small and people always thinks she is younger by a couple of years. She has white hair and never knew her mother. Gwyneth has a love of God, nature and a way with animals. People treat her mean and she in returns offers them flowers on thier doorstep. 16 year old Percy Drummond son of a rich vicar Edward Drummond was got stealing in Scottland. His parents did not know what to do with all his rebelling so they decided to send him to live with his Aunt in Wales. Hoping that a change from city to country would do him good. Percy's Uncle Roderick and Aunt Katherine welcomed him into thier home at least till summer was over. Courtenay 18 did not. He was a spoiled young man and would one day inheirit his fathers title and land. His mother has the money in the family. Florilyn at 15 was also spoiled and did not think anything of making fun or hurting people. Percy finds that he is changing little by little with the help and friendship of Gwyneth. He is also reading uplifting books and following his father's teachings much to his surprise. When Percy goes home he has left a lasting change to himself and his friends and family he left in Wales. Percy goes to collage and after 2 years absent he comes back to wales and its not the last time. You can't help caring about the characters in this book and wanting to know if the problems ever get settled and how did they. Its a nice uplifting read and I look forward to reading more of Michael Phillips books after I finshed these two novels. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 02/01/2012 PUB Barbour Publishing
