In the Kingdom’s Name

About the Story: Can history rewrite itself? As the time of treachery draws near, hope is but a fleeting whisper.

After his success at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, William Wallace becomes Guardian of Scotland and is thrown into the machinations of court. But when disaster strikes, the love of his life, Eva MacKay, is hurled back to the twenty first century. Frantically she tries to return, only to face failure with her every attempt. In this tale of breathtaking love and heartbreaking farewells, destiny twists and turns until all hope expires…But does it?

My Thoughts: I truly believe this is the best story I’ve read from the pen of Amy Jarecki.  I’ve always enjoyed her books, but readers, this one wrung and twisted my heart so many times, there were chapters I had a hard time reading for all the tears!

To be caught up in a greater cause, the freedom of the Scottish people, William Wallace gave it his all.  He was a powerful man, very spiritual, led with his heart and intellect.  Author Jarecki has written so profoundly the plight of the man entangled with his hope for his people, it wrenches the emotions as even now a day after finishing the story and as I write these words, tears full of emotion come to me.

With all the passion this man had for his country, Ms. Jarecki further entices the reader with time travel, total crazy love which should not even be considered and finally hope when this reader can hardly continue.

If you are a fan of Ms. Jarecki, this is her best.  If you are a fan of medieval times, this one shouldn’t be missed.  If you are of fan of love with pure sacrificial acceptance — do not—I say, do not let this one pass you by.  If there were greater than 5 stars on the ratings, this one, dear reader, is one which surpasses the lot. Amen!

    Beautiful review! The book is on my list to get. I haven’t read/listen to a book by Ms. Jarecki that I didn’t love.
