A Storm hits Valparaiso

A Storm hits Valparaiso

Author(s): David Gaughran

Location(s): Buenos Aires, Lima, Mendoza

Genre(s): Fiction, Historical

Era(s): Early 19th Century



In 1810, José de San Martín deserts the Spanish Army and returns home to Buenos Aires to lead a bloody revolt against his former masters.

Struggling with an increasing dependence on opiates, San Martín forms a secret army of thieves, mercenaries, slaves, and prostitutes to free Argentina from the Spanish Empire.

A Storm Hits Valparaíso is an epic, 400-page historical adventure with a huge cast of characters whose stories gradually interweave, including: two brothers torn apart by love: a slave running for his life, a disgraced British sailor seeking redemption in a foreign land: an Indian trapped in the death mines of Potosí: and a Spanish general who deserts the army to raise the flag of rebellion against Madrid.

Lead Review

The real strength of this novel lies in how the author pulls together the stories of a wide range of individuals. A huge feast of characters (Ellie Beck)
