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.

Impressive! by Nancee on 2/2/14

Disheartened, oppressed, and impoverished, Irish potato farmers sought deliverance from the plague of the potato famine by sending family members to the land of plenty. Illusions of wealth and the promise of plentiful jobs in America lured countless numbers of Irish immigrants to New York City. Unknown were the unpleasant conditions found on board the ships en route to America, and a false sense of security that was literally shattered upon arrival in the "land of plenty." Deceived and destitute, the revelation that they had exchanged one wretched situation for another was disheartening.

Michael K. Reynolds has created a compelling masterpiece of legendary historical fiction! Powerful and dynamic, the details in this novel reveal the depravities experienced by Irish immigrants upon arrival in a country that represented promise and hope. What lay ahead for the characters in Flight of the Earls was deception, the scarcity of productive jobs, lack of adequate housing, filth and squalor in the streets, and danger lurking in the darkness of the city.

I experienced the impoverished countryside and the rotting potato fields of Ireland, endured the gut wrenching travel by ship overseas to America, and the gutters of New York City through the voice of this powerful author. Flight of the Earls is an impressive full length novel to be experienced and appreciated for its richness in detail and the depth of character represented. Penned with incredible depth and rich detail, this novel is an experience in reality. I highly recommend this captivating novel, and recommend that you allow yourself to become immersed in the diversity highlighted in this creation. Descriptive and compelling, this novel is outstanding!
