    After reading a review I bought this book initially intending to give it as a gift When it arrived I couldn t resist it I loved the cover and was drawn into the story from the beginning in Australia with Chris Norman, a commercial pilot After crashing his plane Chris encounters Raberaba, an Aboriginal man surprisingly in possession of a Celtic cross, which ends up in Chris possession.Grief stricken at being blinded in one eye and unable to fly and after the death of his grandfather, Chris travel [...]

    Well written and engrossing, especially the opening chapters that painted the outback scenery with deft touches But this raised tantalising questions I waited for resolution and definition of the indigenous link.How did a Celtic cross come to be around the neck of an aboriginal saviour at the other end of the world Yes, links were uncovered but remained ill defined, shadowy hints.However, the Scottish scenes and characters were well realised and provided a good contrast to the Australian openin [...]

    Wow I just finished reading this fabulous book and I loved it I am not a very competent or fast reader, so a book needs to be interesting and compelling all the way through for me to finish I was just amazed at how much knowledge of the differing cultures this book weaved into the story, along with its numerous anecdotes and fascinating insights on history, people, law, theology etc etc Obviously Nick Hawkes understands well what he writes about, and he writes a wonderful story of love, adventur [...]

    Two reviews from our CALEB reviewers This is a novel that could only have been written by one who has intimate knowledge of the both the harsh Australian outback and at the opposite ends of the earth the isles of the Scottish Hebrides Nick Hawkes weaves a story where these two places mesh together in a tale of intrigue, romance, loyalty, revenge and murder All with a connectedness that will fascinate and hold the reader s attention well into the night and the next morning.Chris Norman believes h [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Celtic Stone by Nick Hawkes Protagonist Chris s physical, emotional and spiritual journey from outback Australia to the wild Scottish Isles was believable, engaging and gently inspirational, with just enough mystery, intrigue and romance to keep me turning pages Plus the language and setting descriptions expanded my horizons and made both locations sing their music, and their magic, to me.Recommended.

    A well constructed tale that spanned several continents very convincingly I was particularly impressed by the thoroughness of details most convincing knowledge of the world of flying, sailing, the Australian outback, the Scottish islands, crofting a writer who really knows his stuff The Celtic world is brought to life in a fluently written tale, that achieves some moving moments e.f when Morag s sight returns My only reservation was the rather too pat series of happy ever after endings with vill [...]

    Loved this story from the first moment I picked it up It was, in many ways, reminiscent of the better novels by Michael Phillips Yet with its unique Australian flavour, blended with so much Scots history, it was entirely different Having spent time in both the Australian outback west of Alice Springs and on the Isle of Skye, I felt the book had just the right touch of authenticity about both locations I can t answer for what it s like to sail down the Inner Hebrides from Skye to Iona but Hawkes [...]

    Mary Hawkins
    An intriguing story Having ancestors going back to Scotland centuries ago, anything Celtic is intriguing for me I particularly enjoyed the Celtic connection to Australia A very entertaining read.
