P & R Publishing Duncan's War: Crown & Covenant Series #1

This book is historical fiction set in 17th century Scotland, when the persecution of faithful Christians (known as Covenanters) led to the battle now called Pentland Rising.

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 the English, who have treated his friends cruelly, and his father's instructions to love his enemies. He must be true to Jesus Christ while attempting to rescue his father from enemy hands.

The first in the Crown & Covenant series, this book emphasizes the sacrificial loyalty to biblical Christianity that so many of our Christian forbearers displayed. Recommended for ages 10 to 14.

This is a great book! I bought it for my two boys ages 9 and 11. They both loved it too. It has adventure, history and good morals. We all learned a lot about history and I loved the underlying Christian messages. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. We read all three books in this series. Matter of fact I'm back online looking for more of his books.

Inspiring heroes, cruel English villains, a courageous uprising, and a secret tunnel will draw readers of all ages into this engaging story. We first meet fourteen-year-old Duncan M'Kethe as he is, in his father Sandy's terms, "playacting" instead of watching his sheep. However, increasing oppression of his own and neighboring families for their religious convictions forces peace loving Sandy M'Kethe, along with Duncan, into a bloody conflict that ends in devastation. Duncan must mature quickly as he sees the price others have paid for their religious devotion. And in the end he has to take an extreme risk to keep his father from paying that same price. Infused with historical fact, "Duncan's War" makes us believe, for a short time, that we are truly in Scotland. And it accurately depicts the struggles our predecessors faced to follow their convictions.
