Overview

Meet The Irishman. In 1847, Aidan Moore has become a man of two worlds. In Ireland, the land of his birth, he had to survive hunger and hardship. In his new American home, he finds promise and fulfilment. But where do his loyalties truly lie?

Meet The Devil. Renny Quinn is sworn to a vow of revenge, hatred and destruction. He uses his ill-gotten weath for vengeance - no matter the place, the price, or the souls he must take with him.

Meet Sister Clair. She is a woman without allegiance to any earthly boundary. She strives only to serve justice and struggles to do what’s right, no matter the sacrifice … to herself or others.

The three know each other well and blend their new lives in America with the rich and colorful history of Vermont during the 1800’s. These hearty immigrants experience the Gold Rush, the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, the Know-Nothing Party, quarry labor and a patchwork of joys, memories and challenges. It all ends in a desperate dilemma after their lives and seasons unfold during their Visitations.

About the Author

Kathleen Lonetto has loved writing throughout her life. Her interest is history and fiction. Of course, traveling to sites, reading and researching history is a passion. She began as a staff reporter and provided years of local coverage for a weekly town newspaper. Later, she became a feature writer for a Community Newspaper chain. As a freelance writer her articles were published in numerous national & regional periodicals.

Writing accurate history articles meant doing a lot of research. She found her way around libraries, archives and museums and enjoyed interviews with historians and curators. She also worked as a Public Relations Consultant for historical networks and museums.

Her interest in history led her to become the founder and publisher of the Long Island Chronicle, a regional history periodical funded by grants and advertising. Here, her labor of love kept her busy handling all aspects of publishing. Compared with this work, she finds that maintaining a website is much more pleasant.

In spite of success in presenting history to the public, her love has always been in writing fiction. Much time was spent in writing and researching DUTCHMEN - A Tale of New Netherland, The GUIDE Encounters with a Native Spirit, and VISITATIONS.

Years ago, while serving as Director of local Writer's Guild, she tapped into the small press movement and a limited edition of DUTCHMEN was published. To her delight, the book received excellent reviews from the press and much acclaim from readers. Copies are now sold out. But thanks to advances in epublishing and POD, all of these works are available for a new as well as a faithful number of readers. Her readings for special events from Manhattan to Alaska have provided overwhelming praise for these works.

After living in New York for decades, she relocated to Washington DC and finally, to Williamsburg VA. However, for all American History buffs, she has selected a few articles for your enjoyment. These were published in Long Island history publications several years ago. But since history remains the same, they are still relevant enough to be of interest. If you have time, take a few minutes to visit the REPRINTS page and read them. Along with reprints, her YoreAmerica.com website contains a wide array of multimedia entertainment that combines accurate historical fact with imaginative fiction.
