Présentation de l'éditeur

It wasn't because of the stranger that such sudden and unexpected danger had come to Rosewood, but the fact that he was there sure changed how it would turn out. . . .

When a wounded buffalo soldier rides into town, life around Rosewood changes in ways Katie, Mayme, and Emma could never foresee. The soldier is an educated, spiritual man who turns heads and riles the local townspeople. Everyone at Rosewood is taken with him, but one young woman will be especially touched by his gentle presence. Through his encouragement, she will learn to recognize her value as a child of God . . . and as a lady.

On a nearby plantation an ambitious man plans to do away with evidence of his past indiscretions. Can the Rosewood family save the life of one it holds dear? Or will they be too late?



Historical Novels Review

"Phillips writes an enjoyable tale about healing, prejudice, and salvation in the aftermath of the Civil War."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing Post Civil War Inspirational 11 mai 2006
Par M. Rondeau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Never having read this author before I picked up this book for two reasons; 1) the lovely cover art work and, 2) the brief synopsis provided from the back cover. The setting of this is in North Carolina in the period after the Civil War, and is the second book in the `Carolina Cousins' series. It documents more of the challenges which were faced by the young women of Rosewood and their extended and unusual `family' made up of whites, blacks and half-negroes who emulate what it means to be a true Christian family.

Even though the story is oftentimes told in the first person voice of Mayme Daniels the illegitimate child of a black woman and Katie's Uncle Templeton it is really the story of another young black woman, Emma Tolan whose self esteem had been sadly de-moralized while a slave on a neighboring plantation. Emma was portrayed as a slightly scatterbrained young woman who had arrived pregnant when cousins Katie and Mayme aided her in the delivery of her now four year old son William. After escaping from a cruel white master Emma had found sanctuary and love within the generous and loving Templeton extended family. When the bedraggled and wounded soldier, Micah Duff found his way to Rosewood he too would find that same safe sanctuary as he was soon embraced by and invited into the `family'.

Micah was a remarkable black man from the north. Spiritually aware, educated and speaking more like a refined white gentleman than even some of the Southern men which of course did not endear him to the powers to be in the `new South'. As Micah's wounds healed he became more and more aware of the beautiful black girl Emma, and before he knew it he'd fallen in love with her. Unfortunately, a white man with political aspirations couldn't afford to have his dirty laundry aired in public, and have a black son show up to ruin his chances of glory. While plans were progressing to eliminate his annoying indiscretions, Micah would battle in order to keep both Emma and William safe in order to save his dreams of them becoming a real family.

The story was simple yet complex with numerous secondary characters that took some time in having to sort out the relationships between all of the various members of the `extended' Templeton family. The author kept the lively pace moving briskly along with the intrigue and suspense of the dangers that dogged Southerners who treated former black slaves as equals. If at times my reading slowed it was in trying to decipher the Southern negro patois the author utilized that while adding a level of natural flavor to the story, was at first difficult for this reviewer to understand. Otherwise, I found this to be a well written and well researched novel for the period showing the bitterness and turmoil of the population from those defeated Southern states. More importantly, it was a novel showing true Christian values and of faith in God and how that faith could sustain a body when the most horrible tragedy of loss of a loved one threatens to rip a person's life apart. This was a beautiful story of love and faith both profound and insightful that is sure to please most fans.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Look at Racism and Relationships in the Post-Civil War South 23 juin 2006
Par Michael Dalton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Reading a novel set in the post-civil war south about blacks and whites learning to live together is a good thing. How many Caucasians stop to consider how terrible and difficult life was for slaves. Even after the abolition of slavery, it was a long hard road. Books like this provide that awareness and give whites an appreciation for the struggles faced by blacks even today.

This is the second book in the Carolina Cousins series. This new series doesn't suffer from being an offshoot of the popular Shenandoah series. Just like the novels of George MacDonald, a man who has served as a mentor to Phillips, character development is primary. The focus is on relationships and issues.

Phillips follows MacDonald's lead in emphasizing the fatherhood of God, our relationship to him as children, and obedience as the primary way to know and follow God. Though this might be considered light reading, it contains thoughtful spiritual content. Like MacDonald, Phillips provides keen insights into human nature and the nature of God.

He is not afraid to challenge traditional thinking. His views, which are slightly unorthodox at times, can be a little unsettling, but they are also thought-provoking. Some may find them refreshing.

Particularly interesting are the romantic relationships. Jeremiah starts to wonder if Mayme, the woman he planned to marry, is interested in his long lost friend Micah, who comes to live with them on the Rosewood Plantation. Jeremiah begins to wonder if he has more in common with Emma, an uneducated former slave, who has a son named William. Phillips effectively portrays the insecurities and uncertainties typical in romantic relationships. He keeps you guessing as to what will happen.

Blacks and whites living and working together in the post-Civil war south may seem far-fetched but the good writing and storytelling make it believable. That's not to say that this group doesn't experience hostility and danger from others. They do. The story starts with an act of evil and then backtracks to fill in the events leading up to it.

This is a pleasant read, and since it's been shown that whites and blacks have different perceptions on racism, books like this can be a bridge to a more realistic perspective and promote empathy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a strong book, but ok in series. 21 avril 2006
Par Christina Lockstein - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Soldier's Lady by Michael Phillips is book two in the Carolina Cousins series, which is itself a sequel to the Shenandoah Sisters series. Micah Duff, the buffalo soldier last seen in A Perilous Proposal, shows up tired and injured at Rosewood, the North Carolina plantation that has became a haven for both blacks and whites. He meets Emma Tolan, a former slave, and sparks fly. I really enjoyed the first series, but I've been disappointed by the Cousins books. They start with a chapter without names throwing the family into distress. Then the book backs up a few months and tells the story preceding the disaster to come. I don't like books that use this technique; it feels like blackmailing the reader into finishing the book. Mayme telling the story in the Sisters series felt natural, but the jumps between narration in this book seem awkward at times. When Micah tells the story of his childhood, it feels unnatural and a bit forced. The premise of McSimmons wanting to get rid of Emma and William also seems contrived considering that it (I won't go into detail because of spoilers) was common practice in the South before the War. I've really enjoyed reading about the Clairborne family, and it's obvious that there will be more books in this series. I just hope that the others are more rooted in history and plot.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Michael Phillip's Books 4 septembre 2010
Par Tabitha - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Carolina Cousins series is an excellent collection for adults and young teen readers. It has some wonderful spritual lessons and it has some incredible motivational properties. Although it has elements of wholesome Christian values, it is very tasteful and it does not over state these elements. It is not a fanatical series. This series would be great for secondary grade students. I'd like to see this type of reading in our school system and not so much goth or mystical mayhem. I have the full series of the Carolina Cousins. Each book is best read in sequence. I read the first book out of sequence and then I wanted more. The book had a list of the series so I ordered all of the books on Amazon. I've just started reading The Soldier's Lady and I cannot put it down. Lots of energy and twists. Wonderful historical fiction. This is good wholesome Christian literature. The story takes place in the post-Civil War era. African Americans are trying to find their way in a society that diligently tries to hang on to the slave system that made any White man with a dream a wealthy baron.
