Crown and Covenant Series - Book 3
The Crown & Covenant series follows the lives of the M'Kethe family as they endure persecution in 17th-century Scotland. Douglas Bond weaves together fictional characters with historical figures from Scottish Covenanting history.
- Duncan's War: Young Duncan M'Kethe finds himself caught in the web of Sir James Turner, the former Covenanter turned military leader of the persecutors. Duncan is torn by his hatred of Turner's dragoons, who have treated his friends cruelly, and his father's instructions to love them. He must be true to Jesus Christ while attempting to rescue his father from enemy hands.
- King's Arrow: Angus M'Kethe, a ready archer, guards sheep from scavenging crows. Loyal to his family, Angus must match wits in a life-and-death struggle against Highlanders. By faith, Angus turns his beloved game of chess into a tool of victory. But desperate fear grips the Clan with an unexpected murder! Will Covenanters be found guilty? Angus's true test of manhood and marksmanship will come at the Battle of Drumclog!
- Rebel's Keep: In Scotland in 1679, the beleagured Covenanters continue to endure religious persecution at the hands of King Charles II, and Angus M'Kethe and his family begin to think of leaving their country.
