Heather Song, Michael PhillipsI hope you are a fan of the novelist, Michael Phillips. His legacy as one of the most talented and successful writers of Christian fiction is well established, and in his new book, Heather Song, a companion novel to Angel Harp, I promise, you’ll say that this book is one of his best. In it Marie Buchan’s story continues when the Reidhaven family legacy comes back to haunt her.

Newly married, Marie and Alaster Reidhaven’s life seems idyllic. But when the Duke’s sister’s curses and spells start to plague them, things begin to fall apart for the happily married couple. 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.

Angel Harp, Michael PhillipsBut 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.

FaithWords published Angel Harp in January 2011. Heather Song will release in September of 2011. In his long and distinguished career, Phillips has written and co-written over 50 original novels with combined sales of over 4 million. His current fiction series includes Shenandoah Sisters, Carolina Cousins, and American Dreams.

His loyal fan base in the U.S. has been well established over thirty years as well as his bestselling books and series. His unique style of interweaving expansive and thought-provoking spiritual themes with dramatic story lines, memorable characterizations, and rich historical settings has long set him apart in the world of Christian fiction.
