While I found the overall arc of the story to be an interesting look at the war in South America I thought the author would have been better served focus on a smaller set of characters and a smaller portion of the history The books follows a large number of characters some interesting than others through their individual roles in the liberation of South America from the Spanish The sense of timing was difficult for me to follow as some chapters would cover one afternoon in one character s life and then the next chapter of eual length would cover a multi month military campaign including pivotal battles dealt with in a paragraph or two Many of the events in some characters lives that we learned about again often in detail than any of the actual battles of the war ended up just being anecdotes unrelated to what happens to the character later in the book Overall the book kept my interest but I think there was a much interesting and better written book that the author missed the mark on I do appreciate the list of references the author included at the end I will likely read some of the histories of this time period to better understand the events

A Storm Hits Valparaiso Download ´ 100 Catalina Flores de la Peña's tongue got her in trouble than any other part of her body even though there were far likely candidates But when a storm rolls into her sleepy port town she finds herself embroiled with a gang of adventurers mercenaries and prostitutes on a journey to free South America from the Spanish Empire A Storm Hits Valparaíso is an epic historical adventure starring two brothers torn apart by love; a slave running for his. Once I started this book I just wanted to be left in peace to finish it and everything else including preparing Sunday dinner became an annoying distractionWe have all heard of Sim n Bol var a leader in the struggle to free Hispanic America but A Storm Hits Valparaiso introduces a host of other characters some real some fictional that contributed to the liberation of South America from the SpanishThere are many unsung heroes and heroines in any war of independence and Gaughran introduces the reader to a few of them The escaped slave Z and freed slaves of South America seeking to consolidated their freedom Mar a de los Remedios wife of San Martin who encouraged the women of Argentina to raise funds buy guns and sew uniforms for the soldiers Diego and Jorge brothers who have lost all and become embroiled in the war Pacha a native enslaved in the mines of Peru by the Spanish seeking to free his people and get home to his family Madam Feliz whose gambling housebrothel provided distraction from the ravages of war for the soldiers Lord Captain Thomas Cochrane the disgraced British naval officer and MP seeking to clear his name and revive his fortune by enlisting as a mercenary and of course Jos de San Martin a deserter from the Spanish army who ends up commanding Argentine forcesThis is far than a historical novel about war It is an account of the lives and loves of a large cast of disparate characters and the circumstances that led them to be in that part of the world at the height of the struggle for independence Gaughran s deft touch seamlessly blends all the characters together into the heart of the storyIf I can single out one character Catalina sent by her father to stay with her pious spinster aunt in Santiago to avoid the rising dangers at their tavern in Valparaiso The headstrong Catalina escapes the boring old woman s clutches But as the war unfolds tragedy leaves Catalina displaced and desperately trying to forge a new lifeI loved this book and highly recommend it I googled the characters and searched out the locations on google earth and you ll be doing the same This is an interweaving of history and fiction at its best
