Tears of the Mountain chronicles a single day
in one man's life July 4, 1876 along with a
series of flashbacks that all lead up to an eventful
Centennial Independence Day celebration in
Sonoma, California. Over the course of this
surprisingly pivotal moment in his life, Jeremiah
McKinley prepares for the celebration and for a
reunion with old friends and family.
However, as he reflects on past love, the
hazardous pioneer journey of his youth across
the continent from Missouri, and the many violent
conflicts of the West, voices of the long dead
come to him, while old wounds and enmities
resurface, threatening everything he holds dear.
Furthermore, a series of mysterious notes and
messages follow him throughout the day. When
a visiting senator is found dead, suspicion leads
to his old mentor, Professor Applewood, whose
sudden disappearance from the festivities makes
McKinley a suspected accessory to a fugitive.
John Addiego fills this tale of America’s coming of
age with wit and lively prose, seamlessly moving
back and forth through time in a novel that
recognizes both our darker side and our promise.

About the Author:

John Addiego was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. He now lives with his wife, Ellen, and daughter in Corvallis, Oregon, where he teaches students with special needs. He has published numerous stories and poems in literary journals and is the author of a previous novel, The Islands of Divine Music.

From Publishers Weekly:

One man stands up against injustice and ignorance in a frenetically plotted if rangy novel from the author of The Islands of Divine Music. The large crowd that arrives in Sonoma County's Santa Rosa to celebrate Independence Day in 1876 contains a charismatic utopian minister, a snooty newsman, harmless libertine professor Elijah Applewood, blow-hard Senator Morris, and levelheaded Jeremiah McKinley, our honorable protagonist, who is led on a wild goose chase as he struggles to discover who is menacing his family. The plot takes a few wobbly turns as Senator Morris is found poisoned in his hotel room--for which Jeremiah's beloved mentor, professor Elijah, is blamed and arrested--and Jeremiah's wife and children vanish. But the biggest trouble comes as Elijah disappears and Jeremiah is accused of assisting in his escape, leaving Jeremiah to prove his innocence before he's hanged. Though Addiego is no high prose stylist ("He was naked and joined to... his wife's back by the effluence of their loving"), and many of the characters read like they moseyed out of an old dime novel, fans of western fiction will appreciate the setting, fast pace, and Jeremiah's sheer moral doggedness.
