SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Newly married, Marie and Alaster Reidhaven's life seems idyllic. But things start to fall apart when the Duke's sister's curses and spells start to plague them. Alaster dies and again Marie is widowed. Marie returns to Canada to visit her dying father. The reunion is tender and healing for them both.

Unexpectedly months later, Marie is astonished to learn that back in Scotland, her deceased husband Alaster never signed their pre-nup and had instead undertaken the legalities necessary to insure his estate would indeed go to Marie. Olivia is furious and full of threats and attempts to kill Marie and then disappears. Marie inherits and again assumes the title and role of duchess.

But now the other half of her former "love triangle" bubbles up from out of her past. Marie and Grahm begin seeing each other "as friends" awaiting God's leading.

Olivia reappears and again tries to kill Marie. Olivia eventually dies of cancer, unrepentant. The Reidhaven family line is at an end, the legacy of their memory to be carried forward by Marie who loved, in the end, all of them.

****NOTE**** I did not sign up for this tour although I wanted to. I read book one and LOVED it. Book one is called Angel Song. Michael Phillips is a brilliant writer and I was whisked into a small town in Europe as his main character fulfills her dream of traveling.

This book is on my wish list. I'd love to see where this author takes his main character next! This is a thick book and I could not fulfill the requirements in the time they needed it. But I definitely have this book on my read soon list!!

  1. I love Michael Phillips' books!! I believe that I come close to having all the books he has written:) I first found him through the George McDonald books that he edited and published and then found his own writing. I have NEVER been disappointed in anything I have read that he has written. I have Angel Song and Heathers Song is on my wishlist!! Thanks for sharing one of my all time favorite writers!! margie at mijares dot net

  2. Margie; Thanks for sharing your love of Michael Phillips. I'll definitely have to check out his other books. Angel Song was the first book I've read by this author.

    Thanks for stopping by and letting me know.
