DUNCAN'S WAR, by Douglas Bond
First in the Crown & Covenant Trilogy . Young Duncan M'Kethe finds himself caught in the web of Sir James Turner, the former Covenanter turned military leader of the Royalist persecutors. Duncan is torn by his hatred of Turner's Dragoons, who have treated Scotland 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.
"Here is the ideal book to curl up with on a rainy day, or to read on a dark winter night or on a long journey. Duncan's War will lift you out of today right into the seventeenth century and onto the wild moorlands of southern Scotland. It is a world inhabited by evil, danger, death, courage, and faith--a story not to be missed." Sinclair B. Ferguson, minister, Church of Scotland
