Crown & Covenant Series, Book 1
First book in the outstanding Crown & Covenant Series, Duncan’s War is set in 17th century Scotland! Young Duncan M’Kethe find himself caught up in the web of Sir James Turner, the former Covenanter who has turned traitor to lead their opposing persecutors. Duncan is torn by his hatred for Turner’s Dragoons, who have treated his friends cruelly, and his father’s instruction to love one’s enemies. He must be true to Jesus Christ while attempting to rescue his father from enemy hands.
These stories, drawing from a heroic time in church history, will help your young reader be grateful that we are free from tyranny, with liberty bestowed by God.
The Crown and Covenant Series Includes also:
Book Two: King’s Arrow
Book Three: Rebel’s Keep
In the series, Duncan and his brother Angus team up again to stand for the Covenanter’s cause and fight the king’s injustice. Will they be compelled to flee to America, forced to leave their beloved homeland? Or will God help them to deliver the nation they love from tyranny? The Crown & Covenant series are historical fiction, following the lives of the M’Kethe family, as they endure persecution as Christians in 17th-century Scotland. Bond skillfully weaves together true historical figures from that era with fictional characters.
“Douglas Bond has introduced a new generation to the heroics of the Scottish Covenanters, and he has done it in a delightful way. A gripping tale full of action, purpose, principle, and character.”
