He’s going to be a great responsibility and he’s not going to change

In his new novelKillarney” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Brian Stuart Pentland presents to readers the story of how an impossible situation can be made possible by love.

The main characters in “Killarney” are Michael and Paul. Michael is dyslexic, and struggles to find his place in society. Paul plays the role of Michael’s savior, who helps him find a place. This aspect, as well as the romances that play out in the book’s pages, are what give “Killarney” its true strength.

An excerpt from “Killarney”:

“‘He’s going to be a great responsibility and he’s not going to change...’

The story of a dyslexic 18-year-old, who just happened to be gay, and how with love he did change, not only his own life but the lives of those around him.”

Pentland hopes that his book and the experiences he portrays within it will remind readers that “… the disadvantaged can be turn into productive members of society with the right approach.”
