About the Book

A heartfelt narrative of fear and faith from a man who is experiencing a trauma that is inextricably linked, not just in coincidence, but in his heart, to a hurt he’s been carrying for thirty-one years. We share his journey through his back story of his Irish widowed father left with six children to raise on a Birmingham council estate to amusing West of Ireland summer holidays.

It’s one such jaunt as a young man that changes the course of his life forever when he becomes stranded on Irish shores, unwilling at first, till a tale of romance dovetails with the modern story. Told with honesty and humour THE WILL OF ANNIE is a thoughtful moving memoir from an engaging aspiring writer.
