The Book

ShantyGoldFront-675x1012

Shanty Gold is an historical novel which will immerse you in a wild ride of discovery, romance, and bravery.

Not without terror, its heart is a story of character.

Thirteen-year-old Mary Boland trusts a stranger and boards a ship to Boston, leaving behind her beloved Ireland.

With her mother dead from the famine and her “da” disappeared in the mists of New England, Mary is desperate.

This is her only chance.With peril at every turn, Mary needs a comrade. She finds him in African slave boy, Kamua Okafor, who becomes her ally in survival.

The two teens combine Celtic and African superstitions to defeat the evil crew, save the starving Irish in the hold and create a new life in Boston.

The author’s wish is to demonstrate to today’s young people that not all heroes exist in a dystopian future. Some were our ancestors.

Shanty Gold is available in all digital formats and at local bookstores.
