A Prodigal Hero Returns . . .
Och, what a finale! Jamie McKie’s long-awaited return to his ancestral home of Glentrool tests the depth of his courage, the strength of his sword, and the tenacity of his vow to honor the Almighty, no matter the cost.
To claim his inheritance, Jamie must first outwit his devious uncle, Lachlan, then confront the two men he fears most: Evan, the brother whose blessing he stole, and Alec, the father he once deceived.
Jamie faces a perilous journey of the heart as well: The two women in his life, Leana and Rose McBride, each stake a tender claim on his affections. Quiet, gentle Leana is the mother of his firstborn, Ian. And Rose, her spirited younger sister, is expecting his second child. Honor and duty prevail but not without heartache. By the last page, tears of sorrow will turn to tears of joy as the story ends on the happiest of notes.
Historical detail and ageless truth are woven into a colorful tartan of a tale in Whence Came a Prince.
Since Whence Came a Prince is based on the biblical story of Jacob, Leah, and Rachel from Genesis 30-35, you might find the following study of interest (found below in the Book Club Resources section).
