Summary

Lynn Strongin's book, "That Glorious Child, Flynn," is a cornucopia of stories about children north, south and Irish. The heartbeat is a special needs child, Fynn. In one sense he is one of the new indigo children, exceptionally gifted as well as otherworldly: smaller than other children, a mystical boy born with milk white curls which mysteriously turn black as coal in early childhood. It is also a love story between two women, Fynn's mother, Megan, who is haunted by her strange child, and Erika, born in post world war II Europe. Primarily, this book is an interwoven theme of how Fynn develops in his very specially imagined world. A poignant sub-theme is the friendship and love between the two women, Megan and Erika, expressed in a series of letters written to each other like bursts of star-fire. Open the pages of this book and fall into a tale that shows what happens to alter Fynn's fate and place in the world as he suffers through a violent event in his mother's life; indeed, a tragedy that alters the course of all their lives forever.
