"Counter Currents" is the story of Irish immigrant Ryan Lone Pine, who is caught up in Canada's Wars of Independence in the early 19th century.

Author Shaun J. McLaughlin has peopled his book with both historical figures and fictional characters. By telling Ryan's story, he tells the stories of both the United States' early years and Canada's struggle for independence from the British. His characters are well-drawn and interesting, and his book is informative without being didactic.

As we read about Ryan's involvement with smugglers, patriots (on both sides of the argument) and his growing love for an infamous man's daughter, we see the history of the North American continent growing and changing.

I enjoyed the book a great deal and would recommend it without hesitation to historical fiction fans.
