These works of historical fiction follow the M'Kethe family in Scotland. It is the 17th century, and persecution abounds towards those who refuse to recognize King Charles II as head of the Church. The author, Douglas Bound, weaves together fictional characters with historical figures from Scottish Covenanting history to create these high-intensity adventures. The three books are written with some Scottish terms intermixed, but a glossary of those terms are provided at the back of the book. There is also a detailed timeline of Scottish Covenanting history provided at the end of the books. A map showing all the important events is also displayed at the beginning of each book. - elise
