THE KING’S DAUGHTER tells the sweeping tale of four Irish fishermen who journey from Ireland to America in search of a new life. When they settle on a remote wilderness island in Lake Michigan, their peaceful and promising refuge suddenly becomes a battleground of religious conflict and social unrest. A colony of Mormon settlers takes control of the island and James Strang, their charismatic leader, declares himself to be “King of the Mormons.” Centered on a forbidden love affair between King Strang’s daughter Sarah and Andy, a young Irish fisherman, the novel explores the tensions that existed between immigrant groups and the dramatic impact of the Mormon presence on Beaver Island, Michigan. As escalating conflict consumes the island and Strang’s kingdom crumbles, Sarah and Andy must fight for their love, leading the novel to an astonishing conclusion.
