Join Percy Drummond on a search that takes him from Scotland to Ireland and a treasure that is closer than imagined. Having accepted his uncle’s dying request, Percy begins an unforgettable quest to solve the hidden mystery of the Westbrooke estate. Meanwhile, circumstances in Wales threaten his success—and the future. As the key to the mystery seems to slip further from him, will Percy discover that treasure is closer than he imagined?
Michael Phillips is one of the renowned Christian novelists of our time. He has penned sixty fiction titles of great variety—historical and contemporary; romance, mystery, and thriller. The breadth of Phillips’s audience is a testimony that his writing is universal in its appeal, with thought-provoking spiritual themes known as his “spiritual tunes.” Phillips’s name is often linked with Scotsman George MacDonald, the man whose books helped lead C.S. Lewis to Christianity. Along with his own writing, Phillips’s passion is to make the links between MacDonald and Lewis more widely known. Phillips and his wife, Judy, divide their time between homes in California and Scotland.

Very good in keeping the reader's interest in following the characters and looking for the outcome of each.
Would like to see a 3rd book in the series as it was hard to leave the families.

From the Back Cover: A quest for the truth leads home
Having accepted his uncle's dying request to restore the missing heir to the Westbrook estate, young Scotsman Percy begins an unforgettable journey. But as his search leads him to Ireland, circumstances in Wales threaten the future.
Percy's engagement to beautiful Florilyn Westbrooke hangs in the balance when Florilyn fears they are moving too quickly. Childhood friend Gwyneth Barrie disappears unexpectedly and Percy begins to feel his heart pulled toward the mystifying lass. Meanwhile, cousin Courtenay Westbrooke devises a scheme destined to rip the family and estate apart once he inherits his late father's title.
As Percy's quest continues down many circuitous paths, the key to the mystery seems forever to elude him_ unless he can discover the greatest treasure that was within his sight all along. Will he find the true reward before it fades into the misty Celtic past?
The quest is on. Percy sets out to fulfill his dying uncle's last request and that involves a journey that takes him through Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. While he is on his quest there is treachery at home as Courtney moves to take the title and destroy the estate. Then the romance between Percy and Florilyn seems to be dissolving while it may be beginning with Gwyneth, however she has mysteriously disappeared. Deceit, treachery, mystery and romance fill the pages of "The Treasure of the Celtic Triangle". Mr. Phillips has given us quite a story and it is filled with the wonder of countries that I have not been to in a time before industry took over. I liked this book and really did not want it to come to an end.

FayeAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Classic TaleOctober 18, 2012FayeAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A lovely novel that evokes the classic writing styles of years gone by.
Percy has grown up and become a man, having accepted his uncle's dying request, Percy embarks on a quest to resolve the mystery of the Westbrooke estate, and hte answer might be closer than he ever thought.
Michael Phillips has written another memorable addition to his The Green Hills of Snowdonia saga. This book is written in a style and plot reminiscent of the late George Macdonald, which I believe was totally intentional.
I loved how the characters were carefully crafted, and there was mystery to the plot. But the thing that I most loved was that this was the kind of book that you might find on the shelves of a home 100 years ago, because of the values represented and solid biblical foundation.
The descriptions were detailed and I like how the characters interacted. Florilyn was a wonderful character who continued to grow, and I like watching these young people grow into the people that they were supposed to be.
Overall a wonderful book that I found very enjoyable.
I received this ebook from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
gjo50TexasAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful story that uplifts the readerSeptember 30, 2012gjo50TexasAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The is a beautiful novel written in a similar manner to those of Louisa May Alcott in that it creates in the reader the desire to live a better life with a closer walk with the Lord. On his deathbed, Percy Drummond's uncle requests that Percy attempt to locate his never acknowledged first born child from Ireland. Since the location of the heir will change the current lineage, Percy takes on the task while his wedding plans fall apart, and his cousin threatens Percy's aunt. This story is heart wrenching and beautiful, running the gamut of emotions. I loved it. This is the first Michael Phillips novel that I have read, and I will definitely look for all his others. I would recommend this for people who enjoy a novel that captures their hearts and strives to lift them up while it weaves a beautiful story.
