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.
