Irish Immigrant, Seamus Hanley is trying to live life like a mountain man on the run. He the living on the run down, but not quite so much living like a mountain man.
When a US Army supply and mail wagon crashed before his eyes, with one horse dying and one escaping, Seamus makes good on the spilled provisions…including the living horse. He soon finds himself on the run again. First for deserting the US Army for Mexico in the war, and now for stealing.
Will he make it to California? Will he find the woman, Ashlyn, in the picture? Will he be able to help her find her father? And what about his own family, will Devin be found? Will they strike it rich in the California gold rush?
Well now, you’ll just have to read the book for yourself to find out.
In Golden Splendor is authored by Michael K. Reynolds and is an “Heir of Ireland Novel”. The story is captivating, yet predictable. I would have liked to see the plot move along a little faster. The characters (and plot) are well developed and remain “true”.
It’s a great book. I give it 4 out of 5 Turning Pages, only because I would have preferred a quicker plot.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to give a good review, just an honest one. All opinions in this review are my own.
