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. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
