Summary

The trilogy The Winslow Breed serves as a prequel to the author#x19;s highly successful House of Winslow series (published by Bethany House).#xA0; As the Sparks Fly Upward#xA0;is the final book in the trilogy. Young Colin Winslow grows up feeling altogether different from the rest of his family. Not bold and rough like his charismatic brother, Adam, or headstrong and spoiled like his sister, Adara, he is a gentle soul with a special love for natural things. His interest in animals, medicine, and healing brings him in contact with a strange woman who lives in the woods, Meg Caradoc. She teaches him the fine art of using a variety of herbs to quell sickness and pain. When Colin studies at Oxford, an eccentric but brilliant professor, Dr. Phineas Teague, guides the young man to a career in medicine. The formal knowledge Professor Teague imparts, combined with knowledge of Meg's herbal remedies, make Colin an insightful and successful doctorone with the approving eye of Queen Elizabeth on him. Colin#x19;s skill quickly earns him many patients, some highly placed in the courts of both his queen and her sister Mary Queen of Scots. This once shy and uncertain young man finds himself in the midst of court intrigue and a key player in quelling assassination plots and passing vital information to the queen#x19;s court. When Colin faces his most difficult casecuring the wounds his brave brother suffered in battlehe must confront his attraction to Adam#x19;s wife, his unsteady faith in God, and his command of medicine: will he abandon his noble role and succumb to temptation, or will he take his place as the new hero of the#xA0;Breed of Winslow?
