Liberty for the Lion Shield

Joanne Kathleen Farrell Sharing about my novel, Liberty for the Lion Shield...

It is the story of the Irish coming to America and the lives of those who followed them. Each generation gave it all and found the will to survive when all odds were against them. They were a huge contribution to American culture and society.

The story begins with a couple caught in the middle of war. They loose their daughter and are bonded andĀ sold into slavery as prisoners of war. In America they are blessed with the fact that their daughter has survived and is still alive. Can they make it through an escape with her?

Patrick stands by his cousins through the great hunger. Their mother died and grandmother. They have no one. Will he see them to America or will he save himself?

Dr. Farrell sees his family torn apart by disease. He marries his nurse and brings her to Saranac Lake, NY to care for patients with this horrific incurable disease. When old folks are homeless and in need of care will the doctor risk it all and let an elderly woman in his home?

Find out the answers to these questions and many others by reading Liberty for the Lion Shield by Joanne Kathleen Farrell. The novel is available @ amazon.com. Powell's.com. barnes and Nobel. Borders, and a book store near you.

Sounds interesting! It's really incredible how families interweave and express themselves in human geography, places, road names, towns, etc. when you think about it. Everyone's standing on the shoulders of their ancestors all the time and it seems to hardly even matter in daily life. I'd like to know more about my own family history, and everyone has their own story to tell. This one sounds interesting!
