About this title


Michael Forester returns. The origin of the Flat Creek boy's grit becomes clear in Recapturing Lisdoonvarna, the prequel to Good Fortune Sweet Journeys. This is the story of a grieving Michael finding peace and also Sean Kelly, his red-headed ancestor, whose tenacity during the Civil War earned him the beautiful and isolated land Michael today claims as his own.Michael's early forbearer is a poor but honorable young Irishman, who in 1859 escapes conflict and injustice in Ireland only to find flourishing evil on the streets of New York City. Sean then joins the Union Army as a horse soldier and serves under General Sheridan. In 1866 he musters out of his cavalry regiment in Saint Louis and journeys through the wild forests of the Missouri Ozarks intent on delivering a fallen soldier's effects to his family. His travels become a lonely man's odyssey to gain acceptance and love. Along the way several women seek his trust, and lay open their hearts. Sean's political and religious tolerance shines in stark contrast to the hatred so prevalent during the times. The Irishman also plays an extraordinary fiddle, and his joyful tunes are a tonic for all who listen. Modern while at the same time compellingly nostalgic, two stories from different centuries pleasingly join to propel the reader's quest for justice, love, and decency to a higher level.

About the Author:

The author's roots lie in the Missouri Ozarks. His passion for storytelling surfaced with Good Fortune Sweet Journeys, continued in The Sand Mountain Armadillo War, and delivered world class intrigue with the publishing of Sailing the Blue Green Line. His imagination and enthusiasm shine bright in Recapturing Lisdoonvarna, the eagerly awaited prequel to his first book. A world traveler with a keen interest in the past, the author has creatively laced adventure and romance in his novels and historical fiction. His rousing tales are constantly interwoven with threads of determination and decency, and his rustic lifestyle along with his advocacy of duty, honor, and country are rarely far from the storyline.Although leaving rural Missouri repeatedly over a forty year span, his love of the land and family have always drawn him back, and consequently his stories of courage and love have gained a keener edge.
