Product description


Professor Alan Carr, University College Dublin: "A coming of age novel with a difference - what makes this an exceptionally memorable novel is his empathy for his characters and his thoughtful storytelling - a masterpiece." Anita Atkinson, Editor, The Weardale Gazette: "The advertising blurb cannot do it justice. This is the most gripping and memorable story I have read - I thoroughly recommend it to everyone." Chris Lloyd, the Northern Echo: " - weaves a dramatic story from his wife's family, about the strange secrets of life during the Irish troubles, with other exciting tales from the second world war era - " John Foster, BBC Radio Tees: " - an amazing book - a fascinating story" Elizabeth Taylor, Librarian: "Describes the journey of two Irish lads from the trouble torn Ireland of the 1920s to the end of the Second World War; plus, the decisions they must make in loyalty and love. A great read for book groups."

About the Author

Ian had a productive and well-respected career as a child psychologist before writing fiction. He wrote two books about children and families, worked as a trainer for Newcastle University and represented his professional group at a national level. But most important, he spent twenty years helping children and their families deal with trauma, illness and other dilemmas. Hearing the secret lives of others, listening to their internal worlds, thoughts and feelings, and seeing how these impact upon a person's life and external world teaches you a lot about life. And learning how to put the heart of the matter into words is pretty useful for a writer, too.
