The year is 1954 and Daniel Dorsey learns at the age of eight the intimate meaning of death when his parents are killed in a car crash. Taken in by his colorful, at times mad, and always tender and caring extended family, Daniel learns that even the deepest sorrows and hurt can be healed.

Michael Raleigh's In the Castle of the Flynns is about a young boy growing up Irish in a vibrant 1950s Chicago neighborhood. Now grown and looking back on those years, Daniel recalls his bouts with grief and fear of abandonment as he learns to adjust to his new surroundings amidst his oddball family. It is a time of wakes and weddings, conflicts and romance.

Above all, it is a time when Daniel comes to understand both his own loss and the dark places in the lives of his loved ones.

In the Castle of the Flynns is a poignant, often hilarious story of hope, passions and unforgettable memories. It is a novel that will make grown men weep, women cry and cause both to break out in great guffaws of laughter.

From AudioFile:

CASTLE OF THE FLYNNS is a novel of the resilience of an Irish-Catholic family in Chicago in the 1950s. The story is told in the voice of a young boy who has lost both parents in a car accident and is left in the care of his grandparents, with the support of his aunts and uncles. Patrick G. Lawlor narrates as if the the story were his own and he remembers well what it means to be 8 years old. The "first generation" retains Irish accents, which offer local color without being overbearing or strained. The younger characters are more Americanized in their speech and attitudes. Lawlor's apparent fondness for his characters adds an extra dose of warmth and reality. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
