Reviews - What do customers think about Hope (Green Integer)?
Two for the price of one. Dec 31, 2007
Two entwined stories that takes the reader from the the time of early Catholicism to reveal a startling and intriguing secret to a contemporary tale of a briliant but confused poet...a strange and frightening love triangle. The author has cleverly brought the characters, both ancient and present day, into a "back and forth" scenario that kept me fascinated until the final, rewarding conclusion. Phillips is a polished storyteller and word master! His ability to research and his attention to detail gave his novel a fulfilling sense of reality.
