Publishers Description Let Michael Phillips and Judith Pella Transport You to a Time of Romance and Danger
The fascinating world of nineteenth-century Scotland will become your home-away-from-home when you enter The Stonewycke Trilogy. This special value-edition book contains three novels ( Heather Hills of Stonewycke, Flight From Stonewycke, and Lady of Stonewycke) under one cover. Combining all the excitement and romance you'd expect from lavish historical fiction, with the strong spiritual message characteristic of authors Phillips and Pella, the trilogy will sweep you across generations and open doors to a world you will never forget.
The story at the heart of The Stonewycke Trilogy has lost none of its romantic and exciting edge. A sweeping saga of three generations in the lives of an aristocratic Scottish family, the trilogy revolves around Margaret Duncan and the rest of her clan. Though only seventeen, Margaret feels the distance between her parents is increasing and that she is becoming alienated from her beloved father. Into this tense family circumstance arrives Ian, a spoiled distant cousin who gains a good influence among the believers living in this idyllic Scottish community.
Woven around the touching family drama are all the trappings of great fiction. A secret excavation, an evil conspiracy, an unannounced wedding, and an unsolved murder are all part of this epic trilogy written by a talented and beloved writing team.

A beginning for me Apr 30, 2003
I have a romance with Scotland. It's music, it's history, the land itself. My love for this land, and subsequently it's neighboring Ireland, first began as teenager when I read this trilogy. The story itself is simple....a young woman coming to maturity and her love for the land. The loss of a relationship with her father and the new love for a young man he despises. Her decision to leave her homeland and the tragic events that unfold. But, over the course of the series, God's providence in showing her a Father's love she couldn't imagine and being reunited with the one she loved and the land of her birth. The six books of the Stonewycke Trilogy and Stonewycke Legacy are a great beginning for historical fiction set in Scotland. Phillips' later Caledonia works show even greater writing skill and development (And a great introductory course to Scottish history). All good reading.
Stonewyck Trilogy Feb 18, 2001
CAN ANYONE OUT THERE TELL ME: What happened to the stand-alone "Lady of Stonewyck", published in 1985? It is NOT the same story as the final section of this compilation! In "Lady", Maggie & Ian are reunited and return to claim Stonewyck as their rightful heritage. In the "Trilogy", the story skips from Maggie as a young "widow" in America down two generations to her granddaughter, snd substitutes a totally different story line for the intervening years. I feel saddened and cheated.
Great Historical Fiction Jan 2, 2001
This was my favorite series as a teenager. I devoured each novel as it was published and waited impatiently for each sequel to come out. Phillips and Pella masterfully wove a plot that kept me on the edge of my seat, spellbound by the characters and the mystery. It is clear that the authors have researched Scottish history and culture. I learned more about that region through these books than from any history class. These books take the reader into the culture, allowing him or her to experience what it was like in that time, as well as into the heart and mind of each character. I became Margaret as I read.
The development of spiritual themes is well worked into the plot and appropriate for the audience for whom it is written. I recommend this series and the sequel "The Stonewycke Legacy" highly and without reservation.
Unpleasant Aug 24, 2000
This series looked like it would be great. It was in 19th century Scotland and there seemed to be a good plot. These books are awful. Not only is the series boring and slow, it is incredibly Depressing. I can almost guarantee that as you read the first book you will be fustrated and depressed, and by the time you finish it you will want to shoot many of the characters and burn the book. The Christianity is either so serious and wrong it's sick or it is just a joke. The Scottish people were portrayed as solemn, dull, and sometimes sullen. For most of the series, the theme appears to be that life is bad, many people are evil, good people do stupid or selfish things, and God isn't any help. What fun books. Hah!
Definitely not a waste of time! Dec 14, 1999
I have read this series several times and will never get tired of it! The story that unfolds grasp your full attention from beginning to end. I hated to finish the last novel for fear of leaving the lives of Ian and Maggie! A great adventure to all!
