In Golden Splendor

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 Thoughts On The Book: If you are a fan of reading about Ireland and its rich history, the history of immigration to America and America in the early to mid 1800’s then this is definitely the book for you. It is one of the most well written books I have read in a long time. I could not put it down and you won’t be able to either. The characters and settings are so life-like that the reader feels as if they are actually in the story. Michael Reynolds is an awesome wordsmith! He story unfolds with rich detail and color that actually breathes life into the characters and setting. I cannot wait for his next book to make it to the shelves and I plan to read the first book of this series. This book is a 5 in my book and a must read!
