Award-Winning Fiction Author
TO CROWN A KING
I am thrilled to share my latest novel, To Crown A King, with you. Set in medieval Scotland, it is my first work of historical fiction and recently won a Next Generation Indie Book Award. I hope you enjoy the story!
Scotland, 1295. The kingdom is on the verge of rebellion. John Balliol wears the crown but even his powerful Comyn kin cannot break King Edward of England’s insatiable desire to conquer the northern realm.
For Christina Bruce, neither man is worthy of being called King of Scots. Born into the influential Bruce family, the only noble house to rival the Comyns, she is expected to obey her father and side with England. But when a chance meeting with an outlaw named William Wallace brings her into the conflict, she risks everything to get what she wants most – freedom.
From award-winning author Raedene Jeannette Melin, To Crown A King is the empowering tale of Christina Bruce and her struggle between family loyalty and Scottish freedom. Discover her untold story and follow along as she takes her destined place in history.
PRAISE FOR RAEDENE JEANNETTE MELIN AND TO CROWN A KING
"Melin is masterful in her portrayal of Scotland's family clans during a chaotic time when family names and alliances mean everything. Excellent imagery, dramatic landscapes, impeccable editing, and hypnotic storylines... this exciting story brings Scotland's complicated struggle for peace and independence to life."
Reedsy Discovery Reviewer
"Little is documented of Christina but Melin has taken what there is and made it into a wonderful story, reminiscent of many of the Wallace and Robert Bruce stories already written, but from a new perspective... I recommend this book highly for any lover of history or of Scotland."
