1.0 out of 5 stars Family does not endorse book, full of "factual inaccuracies", 12 Jan 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Nothing But an Unfinished Song: Bobby Sands, the Irish Hunger Striker Who Ignited a Generation (Hardcover)
In response to an article headlined 'New Book is First Study of Bobby Sands', which appeared in a recent edition of the Andersonstown News, I wish to put the record straight.
According to the article, the author of the book, Denis O'Hearn, "thanks the hunger striker's sister Marcella for her help with the book." This suggests that I had "helped" or participated in some way in the compilation of this book and, therefore, endorsed it. This is misleading and untrue.
I wish to state categorically that neither I, nor any of my family, helped Mr O'Hearn with his book in any way, nor does my family endorse the book. Indeed, the opposite would be the case as his book contains numerous factual inaccuracies.

I would welcome it ,if you were to commission someone to write a book which you feel is factually accurate.

Ms Sands,
Thankyou for taking the time to post your comment. This has also put me off buying the book. I cannot believe the audacity of the author to be honest.
Best Wishes
Amy Ward
