    The author's lovely, detailed description of an unique time and place immediately drew me into the storyline.

    I was made to feel like I there with the characters--smelling the sea, feeling its mist, seeing the waves crashing against the rocks. And in the midst of all of this I found myself being carried along with its great action scenes!

    Appreciated was the way Gwyneth had a positive affect upon Percy, an unusual answer to prayer. Also well brought out is the spiritual experience of some of the book's other characters.

    Everything is very real and was kept within the context of what a good Christian novel should be!

    I love George MacDonald books, and so also love Michael Phillips who writes in the same genre. He has done his research, and I feel like I'm part of the story. The enchantment of the Isles if also a draw - love the culture and historical setting. Of course, defintely read the 2nd book of the series. Like many others, once I start reading, I'm up late!

    Do not buy this book unless you also plan to get book #2 of the series! Wonderful, suspenseful book but the ending left too many loose ends and questions! The author tells you there are secrets and then he does not reveal them!

    I am ordering book #2 right now because I have to know the outcome and what the secrets are!

    This review was written for From Across the Ancient Waters - eBook.
    With the prodigal son type story line as well as how some of the wealthy and nonwealthy treat their help and fellow man, it shows that we all should look at how we treat others. I Could not wait to read the next book.

    This is another great book written by Michael Phillips. The particular book is the first in the new series The Green Hills of Snowdonia. I have to admit I had some late nights while reading this book. I did not want to put it down and walk back into reality! There is so much great detail in this story that you feel like you are right there with the characters.

    The author does an excellent job at description and character development. How the settings are described helps you feel like you are right there! The two main characters in this book, Percy and Gwyneth both change and grow as their story progresses. You can read some books and not really see this but this author in this book does it flawlessly.

    I liked the adventure, romance and drama found throughout the story. I especially look forward to reading the next in the series. I gave this book 5/5 stars as it is one of the best books I have read this year!

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
