"Make one move," he said, cocking the gun, his voice low, "and I'll slay ye with yer own weapon."
The M'Kethe clan finds itself in pre-Revolutionary War Connecticut weathering a storm of religious and political upheaval. Ian M'Kethe is forced to make a choice in the face of enormous odds, as tensions mount between the colonists and the French with their Indian allies. Forging an unlikely friendship with Watookoog, an Indian, Ian risks everything and gains something he thought he had lost forever.
The Faith & Freedom Trilogy, sequel to the Crown & Covenant Series, chronicles new generations of the M'Kethe family who find freedom in 18th-century America. Adventure is afoot as Old World tyrannies clash with New World freedoms. Douglas Bond weaves together fictional characters with historical figures from Scottish and American history.
Douglas Bond is author of more than twenty books of historical fiction, biography, devotion, and theology, including two adult novels translated and published by Dutch publishing houses. Bond and his wife Cheryl have been married for more than thirty years and have two daughters, four sons, and two granddaughters.
"Douglas Bond is a rising star in the historical fiction genre for both older and younger people." - Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews
“Here comes Douglas Bond—again—to say that those of us who love the truth, are not consigned to live lives of boredom and dullness. In Guns of Thunder, he’s got action from beginning to end. I wish I’d had this kind of book to read when I was a kid.” — Joel Belz, Founder, World Magazine
