Présentation de l'éditeur

Two years have passed since the conclusion of the Shenandoah Sisters series, and Katie and Mayme are young women with big dreams, running Rosewood with the help of their two uncles and their friends Emma, Josepha, Jeremiah, and Henry. Jeremiah proposes to Mayme, but she is hesitant to accept. She loves him but does not want to give up her life at Rosewood. Local whites are furious at the Daniels brothers for harboring blacks at Rosewood and treating them like equals. The newly rising KKK kidnaps Jeremiah and plans to hang him. Will the brothers rescue him in time? Or will Mayme live to regret not saying yes to Jeremiah when she had the chance?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good storytelling and excellent writing make this a delight to read 23 mai 2006
Par Michael Dalton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In A Perilous Proposal, Michael Phillips does the hard work to make it easy for the reader.

The good storytelling and excellent writing make this a delight to read. There are few unnecessary words. The smooth flow effortlessly carries the reader along.

Phillips can turn a phrase with the best of them. He writes, "It was a time of the year when the earth seemed fresh and alive and full of hope, and when you just couldn't help thinking that no matter what happened, somehow everything was going to turn out all right."

The realism gives a glimpse of life through the eyes of a runaway slave. The cruelty and hardships that Jake Patterson experience as a boy leave him with deep-seated anger and resentment. He blames his father for leaving when in reality his dad was deliberately sold to separate Jake's family. After his mother dies from an attack by a drunken white man, Jake flees out of fear that someone will find out about a terrible secret that he carries. It's one that haunts him on his journey to reconnect with his father and find himself.

Jake begins to soften when he experiences the kindness of others. He learns that not all white people are oppressors. Along the way he meets two young women, one white and one black, who struggle to keep a plantation going. The black woman, a former slave, takes up the narrative half way through the book. This is a classic coming of age story in the post-Civil War south.

It's also the first book in the Carolina Cousins series, which is related to the popular Shenandoah series.

Occasional reflections are especially rewarding. One character offers an observation on an overlooked response to hardship. "Anger's not a pretty thing. It makes people miserable inside. Then there's other folks that get sad and discouraged at all the hardships that come in their lives. Maybe they don't get angry, but they go around being sad and miserable and letting people know it. They want people to feel sorry for them, and that's not too pretty to see either."

Another section includes an insight on what it means to be a man. "Most men go through life trying to prove how brave and tough they are. But a real man is one with courage to face what's inside where no one else sees. Growing into a man with that kind of courage is a hard thing. But it's the only way to be a whole man."

Phillips has honed his writing skills to near perfection. He is at the top of his craft, which is why I enjoyed this as much as any of the books that he has written. It's a light, pleasurable read.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A Perilous Proposal (Carolina Cousins book 1) 28 octobre 2013
Par Ann Suit - Publié sur Amazon.com

I liked the first series called Shenandoah Sisters, but reading this book was just like reading those books again, Word for Word in most places. I was looking for a continuation of the first series. A little of the first series would have been fine, but it was way too much.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A sorry sequel 12 mai 2013
Par Granna S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Very disappointed in this book. Up until this, I've very much enjoyed any book by Michael Phillips. The 1st and last quarter were his same standard of fully developed characters with exciting story lines, However, fully half of the mid section offered no more than cut and pasted dialogue from the previous book. What a let down by one of my former favorite authors. A lazy exercise by the author just going through the motions.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 word-for-word repeat of the first series 1 décembre 2014
Par H. Hicks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I really, really enjoyed the Shenandoah Sisters series, so I purchased this book to continue the story. However, most of it is exact, word-for-word, repetition from the first series. You do learn a few new details of Jeremiah's life, but everything to do with Katie and Mayme is repeat. Phillips helpfully puts the copy & paste parts in italics, which does make it easier to skip. But by the time you're 60% of the way through the book, all of it is repeat.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 exciting inspirational Civil War tale 17 août 2005
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
During the Civil War slave child Jake detests his yoke and though young shows open signs of rebellion against his master in spite of the warnings from his father. Jake's anger explodes when his dad vanishes as he assumes foul play. Out pf control, he kills a white drifter who he caught molesting his mother. Knowing that in the Confederacy, no black can get justice when a white is involved, Jake runs away.

Confederate soldiers capture Jake, but he escapes and joins the Union army. There he meets a kind mentor, Micah, a black soldier, who counseled the lad to let his anger go. Holding a grudge, he deserts the army heading to North Carolina where he is shocked to meet up with his father and a young black woman Mayme who he falls in love with. Even in this southern state Jake goes out of his way to alienate whites who burn crosses on their lawn.

Using the Civil War as a backdrop, Michael Phillips provides a rousing exciting inspirational tale that makes a strong case that racism destroys everyone even the innocent. Jake is a fabulous protagonist struggling with devastating blows to his heart. He knows he must forgive his father for deserting his mother and him, but finds it difficult to do so in spite of the encouragement of several women including Mayme to let it go so that he can move on. The cast makes the tale as readers will obtain a taste of how crippling hatred is.
