Michael Phillips in his new book, “Inheritance book coverThe Inheritance” Book One in Secrets Of The Shetlands series published by Bethany House Publishers introduces us to the community of life of Whales Reef.

From the Back Cover:  Change is coming to Whales Reef

The death of clan patriarch Macgregor Tulloch has thrown the tiny Shetland Islands community of Whales Reef into turmoil. Everyone assumed Tulloch’s heir to be his much-loved grandnephew David. But when no will is discovered, David’s calculating cousin Hardy submits his own claim to the inheritance, an estate that controls most of the island’s land. And Hardy knows a North Sea oil investor who will pay dearly for that control.

While the competing claims are investigated, the courts have frozen the estate’s assets, leaving many of the locals in dire financial straits. The future of the island–and its traditional way of life–hangs in the balance.

Meanwhile, Loni Ford enjoys a rising career in a large investment firm in Washington, D.C. Yet, in spite of outward success, she is privately plagued by questions of identity. Orphaned as a young child, she was raised by her grandparents, and while she loves them dearly, she feels completely detached from her roots. That is, until a mysterious letter arrives from a Scottish solicitor. . . .

Welcome to the tiny Shetland Islands community of Whale’s ReefGet ready to become engrossed in the lives of David Tulloch and Loni Ford in particular, and in the blend of the past and the present, and become anxious to find out how the Court Case with David and his cousin will resolve. Past and present collide as Mr. Phillips presents us a story of generational legacies that extends in both directions. Deceit, treachery, mystery and romance fill the pages of  “The Inheritance”.  Mr. Phillips has given us quite a story and it is filled with the wonder of the Islands that I have not been to in a different set of times.  I liked this book and am really looking forward to the next book in this series
