The Eleventh Hour (Secret of the Rose) Feb 7, 2007
I so enjoyed this book...It started a little slow, but then it was wonderful. The history, christian thoughts, and characters are so very real...The pleasure I got from reading this book was wonderful.
Only the beginning.. Jan 15, 2003
A first step in the journey of a deeper understanding of the Father's love.
A must "read" for those who enjoy historical fiction from a Godly perspective.
Just finished the last of the Secret of the Rose series..."Dawn of Liberty." A lot of spiritural digestion to do. Will stay with me forever.
Love, Obedience, Forgiveness and more Love = all action words.
Wonderfully Inspiring Apr 24, 2002
I am a fan of Michael Phillips and his talent for taking historical facts and weaving faith building stories around them. He had done another wonder with this story of WWII and I have loaned my copy out several times.
highly to recommend!! Jun 20, 2001
I read this series a couple of years ago and I absolutely loved it - my husband was fascinated as well and he usually doesnýt read fiction at all. It is fascinating how the author combines history, fiction and christian values. Myself I was deeply touched and moved by the different characters - I lived right with them. Since reading these books roses are even more special to me. After finishing one book I couldnýt wait to start with the next one!
Excellent book! Truly engulfing--I couldn't put it down! Mar 3, 2000
This is one of the first Christian fiction books I have read--it was a great first pick. Michael Phillips has a great way of setting the stage in this story--giving just enough details for the reader to get a firm grasp of the setting and characters without being overly burdensom. The historical background was extremely interesting as well. I was actually transported back in time. I was also truly amazed at how Michael Phillips intertwined the gospel of salvation into the story in a realistic and relevant way. After reading this book, I feel compelled to read every other book from Michael Phillips--especially if they are this good! I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
