About the Book:


 “He banished the snakes son, but he could do nothing about the ghosts.  They still ramble and roam at home.”  ‘Home’ is a place called Cavan, Ireland, where seven-year-old Gerard sets out to find the identity of the tall-man, a ghost who visited his father when he was a child.

However, his quest is thwarted by adult-whisperings and secrets that turn Gerard’s search into a frantic race to save his siblings from his own sinful secrets.

‘Secrets and Styes’ is a coming-of-age memoir, set in an Ireland many think has long gone.

But no, remnants always remain.
