ONE OF THE BEST STORIES I’VE EVER READ

Reviewed on December 28, 2020 Verified Purchase

I just finished this outstanding multi-generational saga and I can’t begin to express how I feel right now. The language, the imagery, the historical accuracy about the largely unknown fate of the persecuted Irish Catholics in the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, the universality of human struggles with revenge and religious beliefs—what a stunning and life-changing piece of literature. I could compare this story to the Poldark series in some ways, but in other ways it made me feel like The Thorn Birds and even North and South a little bit? Everyone should read this! How have I waited so long to find this book and this author!

I am so blessed to live where I do. South Alabama gives easy access to the beautiful Florida and Alabama Gulf Coasts. In the last days of 2020, my husband and I took advantage of that closeness. Not only were the beaches gorgeous, but we were privileged to see two fighter training jets from a nearby air force base streak the blue sky with white smoke, twisting and turning in the air as if playing with each other. Of course, they were loud. So loud, some children walking alongside us on the beach put their hands to their ears to block out the noise.  But their grandmother was there to see that they did not keep them there long. She pulled the hands away and sternly said to the children, “That is the sound of Freedom. Listen. And do not forget, or else you may lose it!”

In the past months—maybe years—many of us seem to have forgotten what freedom sounds like. And, out of a certain caution, because of Covid, we have been forced to accept the lack of it. As politicians react to the corona virus outbreak, more than a few seem to be following the old adage that you should never let a good crisis go to waste. This especially works for the Democrat’s lean toward socialism. A look at their platform shows that we will be losing our valuable freedoms–our right to a fair election, our right to bear arms, our right to worship, our right to work in our own businesses, our right to protect our own property, and maybe even our right to own property, our right to the honest education of our children in public schools, and the God-given right to life of our children before, and now, even after birth.

The list of rights being taken from us goes on and on. Of course, you will not see this if you watch the main stream media, another freedom being taken from us–the right to the truth. But they have kept the truth from us through their absolute cover-up of facts we should know, or should have known. So, see for yourself. Go to: https://democrats.org/where-we-stand/party-platform/ and be sure to download the pdf for the truth.

Here is the definition of Socialism. 1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. 2: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property. 3: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be controlled by the state. I want my America back!

Because of a rigged election–and I truly believe it was not a fair election–the Democrat ticket is ready to begin implementing its socialistic agenda. And unless we wake up, and make our own loud noise of Freedom, that agenda will bring about the funeral of our America. Sad. So very sad.
