MacLean, Isabelle McCall The Oath and The Covenant - The "Killing Times" in Scotland - an historical novel
The latter part of the 1600’s in Scotland has become known in the annals of time as the ‘Killing times’. The Oath and The Covenant is a story based on the lives of these brave Scottish Presbyterian Covenanters, their object being to release their beloved Scotland from the strangling grasp of an English king, who claimed he had a ‘Divine Right’ to rule both church and state. The Covenanters never relinquished their determination to gain what they viewed as a God given right to worship freely. They endured inhumane treatment leveled upon them by King Charles II’s armies in his attempt to subjugate them.
