About the Book

"Award-Winning Finalist in the "Religion: Christian Inspirational" category of the 2011 International Book Awards"

This is a remarkable story. A newly retired schoolteacher goes to live in the countryside in the County of Clare in western Ireland. There he meets and gets to know a recent immigrant, an enigmatic character by the name of Gunna Dan.

The hapless and helpless visitor begs to be told what life is all about in his new adopted abode and what it is that gives meaning and purpose to our existence here on planet Earth.
What follows is a powerful exposition of discussion and argument. We witness a revelation of thoughts and ideas. We experience the pursuit of knowledge close up. We take part in a journey that leads us into new worlds of enlightenment and understanding; of purpose and meaning; of wisdom and kindness; of truth and spirituality; of religion and Christianity.
And all of this happens within a wonderful medley of memory and reminiscence; of history and culture; of art and science; of philosophy and mysticism.

The presentation of viewpoints and arguments is daring and evocative, to the extent that readers will be delightfully challenged to more positively re-examine the great importance of their own personal existence here on planet Earth.
