From the Mom: I appreciate this book because it is fantasy book, which my children like, but it has no sorcery or magic in it. There are Christian themes throughout the book that only add to the story and are not a distraction. I would recommend it to others and we have bought the series to give as gifts. Susan - Mom
The Annals of Wynnewood include Shadows and Secrets, Annals of Wynnewood: Cloaked in Secrets, and Annals of Wynnewood: Beneath the Cloak, which make up the adventure-packed trilogy written by Christian author, Chautona Havig, for kids ages 9-12.
The first book in the series, Shadows and Secrets, introduces you to Philip, a boy of extraordinary character and integrity. Unwilling to accept the town's superstitious tales about the Ge-sceaft, he sets about to befriend the creature. Soon, Philip and "Dove" are fast friends who set out on a series of adventures together. Interwoven into their adventures are Philip's recounting of the stories and characteristics of his God, who is not fully accepted in an area filled with polytheistic beliefs. From answering the question about whether or not dragons exist, to embarking on an adventure to save the village lord's daughter, Philip and Dove find one adventure after another.
The characters in this Christian adventure series are engaging and believable. Parents will appreciate Philip's loyalty, work ethic, unfailing integrity, and faith in his God.Read more ›
We used it as a family read aloud and all ages enjoyed it. As soon as I finished the book, the children quickly grabbed it to read on their own. It has been read over and over again. I do need to give a warning. Once you finish Shadows and Secrets, you will want the other two books in the Wynnewood Trilogy. Annals of Wynnewood: Cloaked in Secrets and Annals of Wynnewood: Beneath the Cloak
This story is appropriate for all ages but I think would be most interesting to middle school through young adult although I know adults in the 50-65 age range who really enjoyed it. There are Christian themes as Philip is mentored by the village priest and lord who are both believers in "I Am." Philip, in turn,teaches these beliefs to Dove who has been raised with the pagan beliefs of Bertha, the midwife who saved her life and raised her.

An interesting series. I don't really lean towards fantasy books, and struggled with the fact that it was better suited to young teenagers than adults. Read morePublished 21 months ago by odie
It took me a while to get into the characters. Maybe it was because the setting was so different from her other books. But once I did I couldn't put it down.Published on July 5, 2014 by thebeloved
