Flying with Angels (The Angel Mountain Saga Book 5)

by Brian John

The Angel Mountain Saga has now accumulated sales of over 70,000.  This is Part 5…â?¦

Get your copy now, and enter the enchanting world of Martha Morgan, a VERY imperfect heroine.

This is a tender, compassionate, poignant novel about the joys and agonies of growing old disgracefully.  It is 1845, and Martha Morgan, Mistress of Plas Ingli, is feeling her age. She receives warnings that she should “take care”. Her beloved estate collapses, and she has to call upon her deepest reserves of strength in order to survive. But her misery is lessened when she meets a travelling evangelist on the summit of Angel Mountain. It turns out that the fate of Amos Jones Minor Prophet is inextricably bound up with her own. A single indiscretion in Tycanol Wood splits the community and tests the loyalty of friends and family to the limit, and starts a drift towards the final tragic episodes of Martha’s life.

 

While Martha is dealing with these personal crises, she is also drawn to help the peasants caught up in the Irish Potato Famine. A shipwreck on the coast near Newport gives her the opportunity to do something practical, but in the process she offends the secret Society of Sea Serjeants. Her family tries to protect her from evil men who are driven by ancient family animosities. But her fighting spirit is stronger than her body, and she takes them on. It becomes clear that Martha will not die in her bed; nor does she, but in the final act of her exciting life there are breathless twists and turns which confound her enemies and leave her undefeated. 

This is the author’s  favourite book within the Saga – maybe because it deals with the approach of old age! “Another masterpiece — real, full of passion and substance, guts, love, life and death — and more — in all their beauty.”  “Pacy, racy and full of dramatic and romantic incident.”  “As ever, the narrative moves along at a cracking pace.”  “Brian John is just a wonderful writer.”  “A magnificent achievementâ?¦.”  “The final pages could have been sentimental, but I found the writing sparse, economical and very effective. I wept.”

This book was planned to be the last novel in the Angel Mountain Saga, since death is the only certain thing about life..  But with Martha Morgan, nothing is certain��. 

When he finished writing this story, the author was exhausted, having invested all of his emotional resources into the telling of the tale.   Now he feels that the pain was worth it â?? try it and see if you agree!
