About the Book

Can a sister’s love endure the ultimate betrayal?

A year has come and gone since Jamie McKie fled for his life and arrived at Auchengray in search of sanctuary and a bonny wife. Young Rose McBride, as fair as any lass in Scotland, dearly loves her handsome cousin, Jamie McKie—but so does her older sister, Leana.

Desperate to have Jamie all to herself, Rose is unwittingly aided by Lillias Brown— a wutch, some say, who’s still keen on the old ways. Leana cherishes her newborn son and clings to her hard-won sense of peace by a slender thread of faith.  Jamie, meanwhile, longs to return home to Glentrool, yet is thwarted at every turn by his uncle Lachlan’s deceitful ways.

All three points of this thorny triangle soon grow as sharp as a Scottish dirk. Och, such heartache! And yet, amid the conflicts, hope burns bright.

Since Fair Is the Rose is based on the biblical story of Jacob, Leah, and Rachel from Genesis 30, you might find the following study of interest (found below in the Book Club Resources section).

"Living, breathing people with heart-wrenching conflicts. Have a box of tissues close at hand.”
– Francine Rivers, author of Redeeming Love
”A first-rate, fascinating historical saga…as big and bold a story as the Galloway landscape.”
– B. J. Hoff, author of An Emerald Ballad
“Fair Is the Rose is an absolutely stunning sequel to Thorn In My Heart. I was transported back in time to my ancestral Scotland and relished every moment. An exceptional work!”
– Linda Lee Chaikin, author of Yesterday’s Promise
