Delighted to share the news of the new release this week….Mahoney by Andrew Joyce...the book is on offer at 99c/99p for a limited period so I suggest you take advantage.
In this compelling, richly researched novel, author Andrew Joyce tells a story of determination and grit as the Mahoney clan fights to gain a foothold in America. From the first page to the last, fans of Edward Rutherford and W. Michael Gear will enjoy this riveting, historically accurate tale of adventure, endurance, and hope.
In the second year of An Gorta Mhór—the Great Famine—nineteen-year-old Devin Mahoney lies on the dirt floor of his small, dark cabin. He has not eaten in five days. His only hope of survival is to get to America, the land of milk and honey. After surviving disease and storms at sea that decimate crew and passengers alike, Devin’s ship limps into New York Harbor three days before Christmas, 1849. Thus starts an epic journey that will take him and his descendants through one hundred and fourteen years of American history, including the Civil War, the Wild West, and the Great Depression.
An early review for the book
Passion, drama, love, courage, fear and wisdom. If you want a story with all that and MORE, then order this book, and prepare to enjoy yourself. These characters and their stories are so real, one truly believes you may have met them at some point in your life. Especially, if you have family who traveled here from other parts of the world to build a new life for themselves. Gee, that would be most of us, right? Want to know what they went through? Want to deepen your appreciation for your own life? Want an exciting, page turning read that will defy you to find a reason to put it down before you get to the end? Here it is! Andrew Joyce’s Mahoney is the book you seek. Oh, I am not ashamed to say, that I destroyed a box of tissues while reading this.
