A Son Called Gabriel

by Damian McNicholl
£7.99   paperback  Legend Press Ltd (2008)

A Son Called Gabriel by Damian McNicholl Set in the hills of Northern Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s, A Son Called Gabriel is a deeply felt and often funny coming of age novel that is ultimately unforgettable.
Gabriel Harkin, the eldest of four children in a working-class family, struggles through a loving yet often brutal childhood. It's a turbulent time in Ulster and, in the staunchly Catholic community to which Gabriel belongs, the strict code for belief and behaviour is clear. As Gabriel begins to suspect that he is not like other boys, he tries desperately to lock away his feelings, and his fears. But secrets have a way of being discovered, and Gabriel learns that his might not be the only one in the Harkin family.
