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

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

The remaining books focus on the next generation. In ���The MacGregor Brides��� (1997), Daniel MacGregor makes sure three of his granddaughters find spouses, and ���The Winning Hand��� (1998) is the story of Grant Campbell���s son finding a wife. In ���The MacGregor Grooms��� (1998), MacGregor is matchmaking again, but this time for three of his grandsons, and in ���The Perfect Neighbor��� (1999), Grant���s daughter Cybil falls in love.
