A KINGDOM ~ A CLAN ~ A YOUNG MAN
Celebrated son Justin McBride revels in his father’s favor and disregards his brothers’ fiery contempt... until the moment he goes too far. After being cruelly exiled from his beloved Ireland and lost in the streets of Queen Victoria’s London, Justin vows to forswear the McBride clan and never look back. Armed with little more than Irish charm, sharp wit and a mysterious dream, he stumbles into the home of famed British statesman Robert Peel, and over the next four years Justin defies the haughty English bigotry climbing the ranks and believing he’s witnessing his dream come true. He finds an ally in Peel’s compassionate and intelligent daughter Julia, but his ambitions are shattered when he is wrongly accused of violating her precocious sister, Penelope. Tensions are boiling over on both sides of the Irish sea when Peel’s son, Nathan, is sent to keep the peace in British-controlled Ireland, and he finds himself entangled between the contemptuous McBride brothers and their beautiful sister, Deirdre. Years pass. A devastating blight ravages Ireland’s potato crop and the McBride clan sinks into desperation. Justin serves a life sentence in the tower of London, where dreams of his homeland serve only to torment him. When Queen Victoria is troubled by unexplainable nightmares, answers come from an unlikely Irish prisoner. As he rises to power, Justin McBride faces his greatest challenge of all. Inspired by the Biblical story of Joseph and set in the Victorian era, McBrides Call tells the emotional story of a family in need of healing and the call on one man’s life to mend his broken family and change the plight of his nation.
