Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
Angels Watching Over Me
By: Michael phillips
Amazon | Goodreads
I read this whole series a few years ago. This is the first book in the series, and the girls are barely teenagers, so I would say that it can definitely appeal to younger readers while still containing some hard truths that existed in the time period. When I read them, one of my sister-in-laws who was 14 at the time, read them along with me and really enjoyed the series as well. Michael Phillips also wrote a second series that follows the girls after they’ve reached adulthood, and I would recommend that series also.
About the Book:
Book 1 of SHENANDOAH SISTERS. Two young Southern girls, one the daughter of a plantation owner and one the daughter of a slave, barely survive the onset of the Civil War and the loss of both their families. When these tragic circumstances bring them together, they join forces to discover if they can make a life for themselves. As their preconceptions give way to experience, they gradually learn to value their contrasting and complementing strengths and skills as they face the formidable task of keeping body and soul together in the aftermath of this devastating war. But is it possible the Lord they have come to know has something bigger in mind for the plantation than either of them can imagine?
About the Author:
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.

Hi Becca! Happy Monday! I’ve never heard of the book or series you are highlighting today but they sound good.
You should check them out! Especially if you like historical fiction particularly post-civil war
I read this series when it first came out and loved it.
