Review by Eleanor Lambert; Bermuda. I just read "Find Firinn" and enjoyed it immensely. It brought back a few memories of my own and of course thought immediately of my sister-in-law. Anne,who was from Scotland. I gave this story 5 stars.
From the Author
The relationship between Uncle Farlan and his young niece is enduring. Yes, he taught her to respect and always remember their Scottish heritage but even more important is the loyalty and love the two share throughout life up to the day of his death. Alzheimer Disease is a terrible thief. But even Alzheimer could not steal Farlan's memory of the secret he shared with his niece.
