Angel Harp

It is a terrible thing when dreams dies.

Everyone wants to be happy, I suppose. I don't know if I would call that a dream.

My husband is gone now. The circumstances aren't important. At least I don't dwell on them. They're too painful. Suffice it to say he is gone.

I knew that it was indeed a terrible thing when dreams dies. I had bien in to lethargy and despondency and loneliness. I had let hope slip away. I had allowed my dreams to fade.

As I stood looking out on that bright sunrise, I thought to myself that maybe it wasn't too late. Some of my dreams were gone forever. I could never get my husband back.

But I could not let them all die. There were still dreams worth dreaming. When you let your dreams die, however, you also lose your ability to dream. You don't only lose the dreams themselves, you stop dreaming altogether. You forget that it's possible to dream, and that life's dreams are good things. After making what I call I decision, I found I couldn't even think of a dream I wanted to do something about. That scared me. Had I really sunk so low?

If that were true, then I hadn't only let my dreams die, I had allowed a part of me to die with them. I wasn't willing to accept that.

I was determined to dream again.

These are just the beginnings of a new adventure that Marie Buchan is about to undertake. She remembers a time when her and her husband made plans to venture to Ireland and Scotland and just lose themselves in the land. Really experience something beyond the tourist towns and sites, but to gain a sense of community.

Being an avid harp player and teacher, she brings along her harp, she calls Journey, interesting enough and begins an adventure that will teach her dreams are alive if we are but willing to take a step to make them come true.

In the latest book Angel Harp, by Michael Phillips, he takes readers on a journey along Scotland's beautiful shores. He tells the story of one woman's talent, passion and dreams, set in stunning Scotland. He brings the country to life as no mere tourist can. This book will captivate readers as it shows in brilliant detail that dreams do come true when faith never fades.

I received this book compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and in doing so, something changed within me. I found it within myself to begin dreaming again and realizing that no one dream is ever too silly to begin to make come true. This book is a classic 5 out of 5 star ratings.

Michael Phillips


Michael Phillips has been writing in the Christian marketplace for 30 years. All told, he has written, co-written, and edited some 110 books. Phillips and his wife live in the U.S., and make their second home in Scotland.


Widowed at 34, amateur harpist Marie "Angel" Buchan realizes at 40 that her life and dreams are slowly slipping away. A summer in Scotland turns out to offer far more than she ever imagined! Not only does the music of her harp capture the fancy of the small coastal village she visits, she is unexpectedly drawn into a love triangle involving the local curate and the local duke.

The boyhood friends have been estranged as adults because of their mutual love of another woman (now dead) some years before. History seems destined to repeat itself, with Marie in the thick of it. Her involvement in the lives of the two men, as well as in the community, leads to a range of exciting relationships and lands Marie in the center of the mystery of a long-unsolved local murder. Eventually she must make her decision: with whom will she cast the lot of her future?
