ABOUT THE BOOK
Irish immigrant Seamus Hanley is a lost soul, haunted by his past as a U.S. Army deserter and living alone in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains in 1849. But after witnessing a deadly stage coach crash, he finds purpose in the scattered wreckage -- a letter with a picture of a beautiful and captivating woman named Ashlyn living in San Francisco at the height of the Gold Rush.
Moved by her written plea for help, he abandons all and sets out on an epic journey across the wild and picturesque American frontier. While being pursued by those who want to hang him, Seamus encounters fascinating characters including a young Pauite Indian who makes the ultimate sacrifice in helping Seamus to cross the snowy Yosemite Valley.
Battered but changed for the better, Seamus reaches San Francisco on Christmas Eve as the city burns in the tragic fire of 1849. But there is little time for rest, as an even greater, more harrowing adventure involving Ashlyn is about to begin.

MY REVIEW-I was honored to be able to review the first book in this series, Flight of the Earls. And I knew then that I was hooked! Michael Reynolds weaves a story that draws you in and leaves you enthralled. I have to admit, I am a lover of all things Irish so that might have a little bit to do with it, but that definitely isn't everything. These characters are people who have flaws and real life problems. They struggle with things we might be facing and that makes me love them. Of course not all of them as you have to have a couple people to dislike. But overall a great book that leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for the next book in the series, Songs of the Shenandoah.
