Child of Awe

by Kathryn Lynn Davis

[From the back cover:] Scotland 1497. At this novel's center are Archibald Campbell, the powerful, cunning Earl of Argyll--driven by ambition for his family and dedication to his King; Muriella Calder, heiress to Scotland's richest lands, and ward of the ruthless Earl; John Campbell, the Earl's proud, swift-tempered second son, commanded to wed the beautiful Muriella; and Elizabeth Campbell Maclean, the Earl's beloved daughter, whose gentle heart was sacrificed in an alliance with her father's bitter enemy ... Rich, romantic, utterly enchanting, Child of Awe takes us from the splendor of mist-covered glens to the brutal terrors of war, from the blazing hatred of ancient feuds to the glory of a new love unfolding ... captivating us, heart and soul, with the master touch of a true storyteller. Based on fact, the harsh realities of early life in the Scottish highlands are portrayed in vivid detail in this sweeping family saga of battling Scottish clans who barter their women to cement alliances, gain wealth and property, and stave off outright warfare. Thirteen-year-old Muriella, who is to be wed when she turns fourteen is kidnapped by her betroth's father and held prisoner in his castle, never to see her mother again. Before she is taken away, her thumb is slashed to the bone, marking her so she will be recognizable if she ever returns to her childhood home. This is the first of many hardships she suffers as the years pass and she battles the terror brought on by her true visions of conflict and death in the future. Helped by compassionate servants and a gypsy harpist, and taught the high price and nobility of love and loyalty by her abused sister-in-law, she comes to terms with her dour but adoring husband and her responsibilities as a Scottish lady representing his Campbell clan. The novel is written with heavy use of early Scottish dialect.

A Child of Christian Blood

by Edmund Levin

A Jewish factory worker is falsely accused of ritually murdering a Christian boy in Russia in 1911, and his trial becomes an international cause célèbre. On March 20, 1911, thirteen-year-old Andrei Yushchinsky was found stabbed to death in a cave on the outskirts of Kiev. Four months later, Russian police arrested Mendel Beilis, a thirty-seven-year-old father of five who worked as a clerk in a brick factory nearby, and charged him not only with Andrei's murder but also with the Jewish ritual murder of a Christian child. Despite the fact that there was no evidence linking him to the crime, that he had a solid alibi, and that his main accuser was a professional criminal who was herself under suspicion for the murder, Beilis was imprisoned for more than two years before being brought to trial. As a handful of Russian officials and journalists diligently searched for the real killer, the rabid anti-Semites known as the Black Hundreds whipped into a frenzy men and women throughout the Russian Empire who firmly believed that this was only the latest example of centuries of Jewish ritual murder of Christian children--the age-old blood libel. With the full backing of Tsar Nicholas II's teetering government, the prosecution called an array of "expert witnesses"--pathologists, a theologian, a psychological profiler--whose laughably incompetent testimony horrified liberal Russians and brought to Beilis's side an array of international supporters who included Thomas Mann, H. G. Wells, Anatole France, Arthur Conan Doyle, the archbishop of Canterbury, and Jane Addams. The jury's split verdict allowed both sides to claim victory: they agreed with the prosecution's description of the wounds on the boy's body--a description that was worded to imply a ritual murder--but they determined that Beilis was not the murderer. After the fall of the Romanovs in 1917, a renewed effort to find Andrei's killer was not successful; in recent years his grave has become a pilgrimage site for those convinced that the boy was murdered by a Jew so that his blood could be used in making Passover matzo. Visitors today will find it covered with flowers.(With 24 pages of black-and-white illustrations.)From the Hardcover edition.

The family's past begins rising to the surface when a mysterious fire takes the life of young Ophelia Boten's infant son. The tragedy sets the family in motion, its members on a quest for self-discovery that will lead them to the drug world of inner-city Detroit, a midwestern college campus, the jungles of Vietnam, and back again. Ophelia sets her own course, one that will ultimately bring her into the arms of a caring and benevolent lover. But before she can embrace her new life and begin a family of her own, she must fully understand and accept the Boten clan's tormented legacy. Inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet, Child of God is a story of family bonds, of forbidden love, of sacrifice and redemption.
