Book blurb: On Distant Shores by Wes Snowden

1847. Bellyclaven, Ireland. A terrible famine has ravaged the land. That means there’s hardly any food to eat. 18-year-old Jonathan Flynn is struggling to stay alive after losing his parents and baby sister in the course of a single fateful night.

Life is already bad, but Jonathan’s pride and youthful temper make him a dangerous enemy in his ruthless landlord, Lord Cavanaugh, who wouldn’t rest until he sends the young lad to gallows. Waiting to board a ship to Boston, America, Jonathan finds a temporary hideaway in the infamous Scartagg workhouse, only to realize that the sinister warden of the workhouse is just one of the many villains fate has thrown his way.

Jonathan’s dream of escaping to America becomes a horrendous journey of never ending physical and mental torture. It’s his will to survive and a burning desire for vengeance that keeps Jonathan alive. And revenge is a dish best served cold…

More than a century later, when old secrets surface, threatening to unravel Flynn family’s present, Rory O’Flynn must decide if he should let sleeping dogs lie.
