ABOUT THE BOOK
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.

A wonderfully written imigrant tale set during Ireland's potato famine. Great characters that go through many struggles throughout their travel to America. Clare takes her brother with her against her wishes and things get interesting. Well paced, a hint of romance, and the second book in the series will continue Seamus, Clare's brother.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
