Brian O'Boyle, only 17 years old, kept vigil as his baby sister and little brother, mother and father, one by one, weakened by starvation, caused by the potato famine, succumbed to the dreaded fever and died. Now they lay cold and dead. With an aching heart, hopeless and afraid, utterly alone and more dead than alive, he yearned to quickly join his family in Heaven. But God had other plans for him and his guardian angel tried to help him find the "high road." Did he accept the angel's guidance?
The O'Donnell family, Liam, Sarah, Paddy and Bridgid were a well-respected and successful merchant family but, because of their Catholic faith, they were shunned, banished and mercilessly compelled to leave their home and business. How did they deal with the challenges of being forcefully uprooted? Did they connect with Brian O'Boyle? Would their guardian angels bring them together on the "high road?"
Meet the Author
Lincoln has been told many times; “you should write a book.” But busy in his 40 year career as a psychotherapist, time and energy were not available. He is a graduate of Wheaton College in Illinois and the UCLA School of Social Welfare. He maintains state licensure as a Clinical Social Worker and as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
Now, in retirement, time and motivation are both available and with the help of mentors, support of his soul-mate wife and the grace of God, his first book of the Irish Odyssey series is complete.
Lincoln is married and living in Fairfield, California. He has three grown children, four grown stepchildren, twelve grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. He is active in his local church parish.
