STORY OVERVIEW

The beautiful yet deceitful Rossalyn McDonald had twisted the knife deep in David Adam MacDougall’s big heart.

Jackson Keene may be the only author to have The Boxer Rebellion and the beginning of basketball in one book, all tied up with lots of romance... and do it so well that readers are pulled in so quickly that you realize that you are reading a very satisfactory ending! I enjoyed this historical novel immensely!

David Alan MacDougal was born in 1882 and, as with many of us, learned about the kirk, the church, and God from his parents, especially David's father. Jonathan, as they worked their farm, w

Beautiful historical romance novel. The central character, David Adam MacDougall, is a very special man -- extremely handsome, rugged, yet with a kind heart and soul. The book is so well written, most readers would probably think it to be a true story. With the drama, action, breadth of plot, and romance, I could really see this book being made into a movie! When I finished reading it, I closed my eyes and thought to myself . . . What a great story!

WOW! Talk about a diverse set of characters, situations, and fundamental story elements. This historical romance touches on just about everything that could occur to a young man in his prime who feels the need to pursue a spiritual calling in a foreign land. David MacDougall is a strong man with a big heart. He proves equal to the challenges he faces, but not without experiencing pain, deprivation, and danger. The historical setting adds to the exotic flavor and opens a whole new realm to ...more

Sarah Quanli follows David's hastened journey to China as a missionary after a painful betrayal from his loved one. There were some dangerous situations which David were in. I'm happy to read that he overcame all of those situations and there's even something about basketball!

The story was enjoyable, even though I find it difficult to follow for the first part of the book due to the slang used by the characters. It got better after David left for China and things started picking up from there, w

I very much enjoyed the book, i liked the way it was written in the style of a true story. It reminded me of the Autobiography of "Tisha" The story of Anne Hobbs who was a young teacher who went to the wilds of Alaska make a difference. It also reminded me of the story of the nun who worked as a missionary in China, sh led 100 children to safety and was part of the unbinding of the women's feet. Forgive me if i can't recall the name of the book or the lady it was about.

I very much like reading a
