Last year I tried a new author and discovered one of the most enjoyable and memorable historical series I've ever read. I don't usually take the time to publicize a bargain-priced book or series by itself, but these novels are well worth the effort if more readers discover the writing of Michael K. Reynolds.
Michael is the author of a three-volume series of Irish historical novels entitled The Heirs of Ireland - three chapters of one epic story that captures the indelible spirit and hope of the Irish people, beginning with Irish immigration to America in the 1840s and ending shortly after the Civil War. And you can tell from Michael's picture that he just might have a little Irish connection from which to draw!
My emotions were engaged from page one of the first book, Flight of the Earls, and the connection only strengthened with the deepening of characterization and plot throughout the series. I really can't say enough about these novels, and hope many new readers will discover these stories. All three volumes are currently available for Kindle readers at great prices. Links to my reviews and Amazon pages are below.
Volume 1, Flight of the Earls
Volume 2, In Golden Splendor
Volume 3, Songs of the Shenandoah
Please don't be thrown off by Songs of the Shenandoah's $2.99 price, for this concluding novel is powerful, one I designated as having the WOW! factor.
