About the Series
Guns of Thunder is set in the 1740s in the upper Connecticut valley during the rising tensions between the American colonists and the French and their Indian allies. Told from the point of view of Malcom M’Kethe’s grandson Ian, the book comes to its climax during King George’s War at the incomparable colonial victory at the Battle of Louisbourg.
Guns of the Lion is set during the same time period as Guns of Thunder but returns to Scotland and Ian’s cousin Gavin, grandson of Fiona M’Kethe. The Jacobite Rebellion is brewing and Gavin must sort out conflicting political loyalties–and attempt to survive!
Guns of Providence moves ahead a generation, and opens with the siege of Boston in 1775. Sandy M’Kethe, great-great grandson of the patriarch in Duncan’s War, is befriended by African-American hero of Bunker Hill, Salem Poor. Ready yourself for a flurry of historical conflicts on land and sea, and in Sandy’s heart and mind.
