The Cottage (Secrets of the Shetlands #2)


Title:  The Cottage (Secrets of the Shetlands #2)

Author:  Michael Phillips

Pages:  416

Year:  2016

Publisher:  Bethany House

My rating 5 out of 5.

The story is of Loni’s inheritance and her learning of the language and people who inhabit a little island called Whales Reef.  She has a confusing relationship with an upcoming man who is in the political arena and the people she meets in Whales who are as different as night and day.  The people view Loni with an attitude of skepticism, except the island chief named David.

Slowly Loni is beginning to understand the island’s view of her and the nefarious attempts to steal her inheritance by Hardy who is a man from Texas and currently on the island.  There is a whole lot of ancestry history being uncovered that surprises Loni.  She becomes enamored with the chief, David, as he is so much more than what he first appears.  He is more authentic than Hugh, which takes Loni by surprise.

There are many threads, characters and depth to the book than I can convey in a review.  However, I loved the continuing story that Michael Phillips crafted for readers such as myself to enjoy.  After a while, some of the written dialect in the book became easy to read and understand as I became familiar with the pronunciation.  I loved the blossoming spiritual legacy that is slowly being revealed in the series and how that affects or effects different characters in the tale.

Don’t let the length of the books cause you to rethink reading them; the time is well worth it as the enjoyment is beyond measure!
