As I began reading From Across The Ancient Waters, my first novel on my new Kindle Fire, I realized that the very first “Christian” novel was The Heather Halls of Stonewyke. This was soon followed by the Corrie Belle Hollister series and many of Mr. Phillips  other excellent works.  Being a girl of fourteen and new to the faith I am ever so glad that these stories were available.  All of Michael Phillips’ story lines are interesting and extremely thoughtful.  Questions of faith are posed and discussed in gentle and considerate ways, never in a harsh or forceful manner.

From Across The Ancient Waters keeps these characteristics alive.  The young Percy, sent away to hopefully reform his bad ways, finds faith, friendship, and adventure in the Welsh countryside.  The characters draw you in so that you feel the pangs of young love and the heartache of losing someone you care for.  I was not ready for this story to end and am happy to know book two will be out in a few months.  The only thing missing was a pronunciation key for the Welsh words; I’m a little rusty on my Welsh.

Phillips tells delightful stories that reflect his astute study of human nature and his passion for words.
