Review: The Inheritance
`The Inheritance` ,written by author Michael Phillips, is a historical fiction novel. The two main themes in this novel are land claimed by Hardy Tulloch and an orphaned girl, Loni Ford. The series is dedicated to the author's three sons and men of spiritual stature. The contents are divided into months and seasons. The topic is generational legacies that extend in both directions. There is a well-formed family tree at the beginning of the book, and a well-designed map of Whales Reef, Shetland Islands.
The author goes into full detail as he tells of each time period and character, past (1924) and present, with dramatized narration. I like the full description the author gives of each scene. There are eight parts and each part has several chapters.
I recommend this novel to all history buffs interested in Scotland. Author Michael Phillips and his wife visit Scotland yearly, which helps give insight to this novel.
Michael Phillips is a bestselling author with more than 70 of his own titles. In addition, he has served as editor/redactor of nearly 30 more books. He is known as the man responsible for the reawakened interest in George MacDonald of the last 30 years. In addition to the MacDonald titles adapted/edited for today’s reader, his publishing efforts in bringing back full-length quality facsimile editions also spawned renewed interest in MacDonald’s original work. Michael and his wife, Judy, spend time each year in Scotland but make their home near Sacramento, California.
