Veil of Secrets: Shannon Etheridge & Kathryn Mackel

_225_350_Book.1269.cover America is fascinated with media. Digesting every tidbit that the press delivers has become as American as apple pie. Hollywood celebrities aren’t the only targets, of course. During election years, we’re slammed with the latest mud-slinging & catch phrase as quickly as we can absorb it.

In ‘Veil of Secrets’, we encounter a group of people who are in the middle of a Presidential election bid.  Candidates are examined all the way back to their years in diapers during a campaign. However, this campaign story involves an ultra-conservative candidate & his inner circle. We join them beginning the third week of November.

Each member of this inner circle has something to hide. One has a long-held secret involving a prostitute while another is dealing with a surprise pregnancy. Alcoholism & marital woes are being dealt with as wives try to maintain marriages & control of their daughters. Some of the characters have a deeply rooted Christian faith; others have no interest in God & it shows.

At the heart of it all, we have families in crisis who must bare it all to fix their problems. Can any of them survive the displaying of dirty laundry? Better yet, can any of them last this campaign?

‘Veil of Secrets’ presents a very interesting plot that isn’t often tackled: a Christian Presidential candidate. While it revolves around the inner circle, there are a lot of characters all together. At times, readers may become a bit befuddled. I had this issue due to two main characters with similar first names.

While the plot is fresh & well-done, it becomes a little wordy in spots. I felt it dragged a good bit. Regardless, if you are looking for a good piece of contemporary fiction with depth, ‘Veil of Secrets’ is for you. I give a 4 star rating.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Mercy Row Clann: Book 2 in the Mercy Row Series: Harry Hallman

mercybanner

mrclannCOVER

The Byrne family fights two wars. One for the freedom of the world and the other for the survival of their family. It’s 1943 and America and its allies are at war with Germany and Japan. As World War 2 rages, the Byrne family must send their sons to war in Africa, Europe and the Pacific, while they fight a war at home instigated by old enemies, internal greed and new foes.

The Byrne children’s ability to protect and grow the family, and the North Philadelphia K & A Gang, is tested with violence, sorrow and love.

Harry Hallam’s family drama is certainly dramatic. Our author travels back in forth over events & time periods in order to tell his story. There are a significant number of characters in the novel who also flip flop through these events.

If done properly, this can be an exciting format. In this particular work, it became cloudy & distracting. Another major distraction in this work was the excessive amount of foul language. No one expects people to speak pleasantly while at war, there is a point where it’s just too much.

Violence isn’t contained to war scenes either. These are very angry characters & there is an intense amount of violent actions taken in ‘everyday life’.

I suppose I expected a ‘Godfather’ type novel based off of the synopsis. However, I was drastically let down. Although this is the second in what is apparently a series, I’ll be skipping any further novels in this series.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Author’s Biography – Harry Hallman

Hallman was born in 1944 and raised in the Kensington section of North Philadelphia. That was a year before World War II ended. He was influenced by the stories told by returning servicemen and the proliferation of war movies that were shown on the then new invention of the television. With the influence of movie heroes such as John Wayne, and real heroes like Audie Murphy, he gained a healthy respect for his mother and father’s generation and their sacrifices. His uncles on his mother’s side both served in WWII, one in the Army and one in the Navy.

Hallman’s father was Harry Hallman, Sr., a champion billiards player who also owned a poolroom called Circle Billiards, located at Allegheny Avenue and Lee Street. The younger Hallman spent many hours after school at his father’s poolroom and watching his father play in other poolrooms in Philadelphia and New Jersey. The people he met, some belonging to the real K&A Gang, influenced his writing of the Mercy Row series.

He served four years in the U.S. Air Force, including two tours in South Vietnam, as a photographer. He is married to Duoc Hallman, whom he met in Vietnam, and has two children, Bill and Nancy, and one grandchild, Ava.

Hallman is a serial entrepreneur who has created several marketing services and digital media companies and continues to work as a marketing consultant.

Look for the continuation of the Mercy Row and Mercy Row Clann story with book three in 2015.
