Book Review: The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle by Michael Phillips

For six months, I’ve been looking forward to reading The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle.

I even had a calendar notification set to remind me to purchase the e-book on the first weekend after the book was released.

And I’m happy to say that it was well worth the wait.

When we last saw Percy Drummond, he had just been commissioned with a very sensitive mission. On his deathbed, his beloved uncle had revealed to him some secrets from his past…and his desire to right some very old wrongs.

For Percy, this is quite the challenge. His uncle’s revelation threatens to change the lives of everyone at Westbrooke Manor. Should he finish his schooling and then pursue this adventure? Or should he attempt to uncover the mystery before his cousin Courtenay inherits the estate upon coming of age?

In the midst of this, he still has questions about many things. Where did Gywneth and her family disappear to unexpectedly? Should he still marry Florilyn or does a certain white-haired lass still hold the key to his heart? And what about the gold and the skeleton in the cave?

Over the course of eighty-two wonderful chapters, Michael Phillips brings to a close the magnificent saga of the Green Hills of Snowdonia series. Best of all, in typical Phillips fashion, the solid plot is interspersed with spiritual lessons that will stay with you long after you close the cover.

Overall, I loved the book. I was challenged to think, as usual, and was quite delighted to see the surprising addition of a minor subplot involving the evangelist D.L. Moody.

The book isn’t a short read, but it is a charming one. I had a hard time putting it down and thoroughly enjoyed my trip to the highlands of Wales, Ireland, and Scotland through the pages of Michael Phillip’s latest novel.

My Favorite Quotes from The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle

“I have always considered green the color of growth and life and energy and hope,” Steven said as they went. “It must be God’s favorite color, don’t you think, since so much of his creation he painted with so many interesting and varied shades of green.”

“Listen to the heavenly nudges. As they grow within you, move one step at a time into the light of their leading.”
