Michael K. Reynolds is the writer and producer of Emmy and Telly Award-winning film campaigns and has more than two decades of experience in fiction, journalism, copywriting, and documentary production.

It’s 1846 in Ireland. When her family’s small farm is struck by famine, Clare Hanley and her younger brother, Seamus, set out across the ocean to the Promised Land of America. Five years prior, Clare’s older sister Margaret and her Uncle Tomas emigrated in similar fashion and were not to be heard from again. But Clare must face her fears as she lands in the coming-of-age city of New York. There she discovers love, adventure, tragedy, and a terrible secret which threatens to destroy her family and all she believes. Flight of the Earls is the first book in a historical novel trilogy based on Irish immigration in the 1840s.

Flight of the Earls is the first book of the Historical Novel trilogy.

This story captivated me, full of trials, hunger, prayers, betrayal, journey's to the unknown and romance...

I have no Irish heritage what so ever, but found myself feeling every bit Irish as those in the story, this is a series that I am going to follow, this book was the perfect beginning for the New Year! 

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from CFBA
