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.

My thoughts:  I enjoyed reading this book.  I have always loved all things Irish as it is my heritage.  I loved the twists and turns and the suspense of the book.  This book is very well written and definitely makes you want to continue reading.  While spots are sad it is very true to what the Irish went through with the potato famine.  I highly recommend this book and hope you'll give it a try!

I received a copy of this book for free as part of the CFBA.  All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own and not influenced in anyway.  I was not paid for this review in any way except for the book. Pin It Now!
