Events in the overall family saga do not occur in the same order as the books' release dates. The book published seventh, モRebellionヤ (1988), takes place first, in 1745, and focuses on MacGregorメs ancestor Serena. モIn from the Cold,ヤ a novella that appeared in the 1990 anthology モHistorical Christmas Stories,ヤ takes place in the late 18th century and tells the story of what brought the MacGregor family from Scotland to England.

モFor Now, Foreverヤ (1987) moves forward in time to recount how Daniel MacGregor met and wooed his wife, Anna. モPlaying the Oddsヤ (1985), モTempting Fateヤ (1985) and モAll the Possibilitiesヤ (1985) tell the stories of how MacGregor plays matchmaker to ensure his three children find appropriate mates. In モOne Manメs Artヤ (1985), MacGregor plays matchmaker to his daughter-in-lawメs brother, Grant Campbell.

The remaining books focus on the next generation.
