Michael Brady, young, naive and afraid sets foot in a strange city, intent on surviving. His story will resonate well with anyone who has had to reexamine the direction of their lives while readjusting to the realities of lifes challenges.

The Captains Coin is a fictional account of Michael Bradys journey from Ireland to America in 1848 aboard a coffin ship to New York City at the height of the Irish Potato Famine. Once aboard, Michael wins the respect of the captain who gives him a token good luck coin and a letter of recommendation to a leading New York businessman. This opening allows him to rise up the corporate ladder, marry an abolitionist only to suffer the loss of this young wife at the onset of the Civil War.

Volunteering his services to offset his grief, he saves the Union at the Battle of Antietam, his lucky coin, deflecting a life-threatening wound and thus saving his life. He returns home a hero and is elected to the NYS Assembly, rising to Speaker and running for Governor in 1888. Michael Bradys journey is a journey from destitution to the pinnacle of political power. His story will enrich those who have had to cope with sudden and catastrophic challenges. It is a story of strength and hope and the ultimate will to survive.
