‘There’s a nice pub there. Shall we stop for a bite to eat?’
‘You have not reached your destination. Take the next left.’
Altogether now: ‘Shut up!’

I’m delighted that ‘The Barra Boy’ is now available in the US , Canada and around the world through Amazon, as well as from many booksellers in the UK. If you’re interested, you can find all the information for getting a copy HERE.
