This collection of short stories and vignettes is at once sad, humorous, and inspiring, set against the backdrop of the Diaspora. Woven from the recollections and experiences of childhood in a society divided by religion, expectations, despair, and hope, it tells the tales of those who crossed the Lagan in search of a better life. This canvas captures the fleeting nature of the Church’s influence and control, and the contempt for its hypocrisy.


Born in Belfast, educated in St. Marys Grammar School until aged 14 when the family left for a new life in Coventry where Frederick attended Ullathorne and Bablake Grammar Schools. On leaving University he travelled around the world, employed in a variety of jobs from teaching to working in mines, and Telecoms in Australia, Africa, Asia and America. On returning to UK, Frederick became sales director in Africa, Europe and Middle East. He was recruited by HRM to work in Poland, Ukraine and Russia.
