This is the story of a young boy saved from unspeakable despair as he is embraced by Irish love.
The year is 1954, the setting a vibrant Chicago neighbourhood. Daniel Dorsey learns at the age of seven the intimate meaning of death when his parents are killed in a car crash. Taken in by his extended, at times mad, and always tender and caring family, Daniel learns that even the deepest sorrows and hurt can be healed.
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.
