Apalachicola Gold

There is no doubt he is evil! Could he be responsible for Pearl’s missing friends? Is knowing her a sentence of death? To the North, the Civil War rages on, but in Apalachicola, Florida, the greatest threat comes from men who stay behind—men of questionable conscience calling themselves the Rebel Guard. At the age of seven, Pearl places upon herself the burden of ending this evil man and the Rebel Guard he commands. She knows the man all too well and calls him Father.    What might happen to Pearl if she is successful in her quest? The key to her future might lie in Miss Caroline, a woman who loves her, and the unsuspecting Michael Brandon Kohler, a good man who just needs a nudge in the right direction.   Pearl remains steadfast to her purpose. Does she possess enough gold? Is there enough gold in the world to free the four million slaves she considers her black family? The truth lies within these pages. This is the story of Pearl.

About Michael A. Kinnett (Tallahassee, Florida Author)

Michael A. Kinnett

I left the family farm in central Illinois at seventeen and began a working career, eventually owning my own business. After raising two daughters, my wife and I moved to the Florida Panhandle. It was in the historic town of Apalachicola that I began creating and caring for the Orman House State Park Museum. Immersed in local history, I now enjoy sharing Apalachicola’s rich heritage with thousands of visitors from around the world. My novel Apalachicola Pearl was born from my passion for the town’s history and its unforgettable people. My sincere wish is for you to enjoy reading Apalachicola Pearl as much as I enjoyed writing her.

“If years ago you had told me that this Illinois farm boy, who started writing at age 59, would have two award winning novels by 61, I’d have said you are crazy. It is an exciting moment when a publisher calls to say your manuscript is about to become a novel and surreal when you see your name on the cover of the first book. It was an honor to be recognized at Florida Authors and Publishers Association awards banquet with two silvers and one bronze medal but the real honor comes from those who have invested their time reading my novels and find value in my work.” Apalachicola Pearl and Apalachicola Gold are the first two books in a three part series and it is my pleasure to be working on the final book.

Both books are available at SYPPublishing.com, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com.
