Praise for Shane Dunphy:
'A heart-warming reminder of the endurance of the human spirit.' Torey Hayden
After the death of his best friend, Shane Dunphy runs away from his life working at a special needs crèche. However, when a part-time journalism job in rural Ireland leads him to three siblings crying out for protection, Shane cannot stand idly by and watch . . .
Little Emma Blaney lives with her siblings in an ancient farmhouse with no running water, electricity or contact with the outside world. While covering a land dispute between Emma's father Tom and his powerful brother Gerry, Shane discovers that there is a lot more wrong with the family than just a feud. The children are filthy, nervous and undernourished.
In order to protect them, Shane finds himself at loggerheads with the church, local government and big business. But Shane must discover the truth before it is too late, even if it might cost him his new life.
