How many of you have read this series, and what was your enjoyment level of it? Some of the thrilling escapes seem a bit far fetched, but besides that, I really enjoyed these books.

I read this series many years ago. I was a a young adult when this series first came out. As with all the books Michael Phillips has written, all the things to make a wonderful story are there. What I feel whenever I think of his writing is tenderness. His work did a lot in guiding me in my spiritual beliefs.

I have not read this series yet. The author's name caught my eye, because I have read his Shenandoah Sisters series, which is worth the read. Thank you for the recommendation.

I've not heard of the series before but I've just looking it up and I'm quite curious about it! I will definitely be looking into it at some point soon.
