About the Series: Ryan's Journey
Born in Ireland in the early 19th century, the fates cast Ryan adrift into a world and life of turmoil. While his heart’s desire is to settle and raise a family, that goal eludes him. His own principles, the currents of history and the will of others—people of both high ambition and men of malevolent intent—place detours, temptations and perils before him. War, rebellion, and assassination all threaten his life. Powerful friendships and fleeting glimpses of love make his life worth living and give him the strength to carry on.
