By Wisdom and Courage Part Two: The Reckoning is the continuation of the sequel to No Hand Can Destroy. In Part One: The Legacy, the selection of Lee Edward Harris, a.k.a. John Hartford, the brilliant young American physicist murdered in 1983 by a KGB assassin, as recipient of the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics, catalyzed events. As The Reckoning opens, Jennifer and her small daughter, Lea, continue to live quietly and anonymously in the West Highlands of Scotland. Lea is a miracle child endowed with extraordinary abilities. Jennifer finds herself inescapably bound to her late husband through the power of his gold talisman, which had been lost for four years and miraculously recovered. Events that now unfold demonstrate how profoundly a single life can affect the lives of others. In the shadow of Beinn Dearg, all hell breaks loose as the main characters come face to face with their destinies. Those who survive this reckoning will forever be changed. It is a time for beginnings and a time for endings.
