“The author did a splendid job in portraying many diverse relationships, city life, church life, family life, corruption and crime, which makes it an engaging read.”– Hotchpotch
“Born & Bred is part historical fiction, part political thriller and part social commentary. With a bit of magical realism thrown into the mix it makes for a commanding read and a compulsive page-turner.”
– Brendan Landers
Danny Boyle isn't all here. Years of destructive behavior have left him in an alcoholic coma. Meanwhile, his marriage is over, one of his children wants nothing to do with him, and the other suffers by his bedside.
And while the complexities of life swirl around him, Danny, in his halfway state, comes face to face with his demons and struggles to understand them. He must confront the ghosts of his past – ghosts who have unfinished business with him.
No one can be certain of where Danny's road is leading. But where it actually leads is far more surprising than any could have anticipated.
The resounding conclusion to the Life & Times Trilogy, All Roads is a stirring ode to life's resilience and possibilities.
“As the first book in a series, Murphy has created a lasting story with great potential in future installments.”– Savvy Verse and Wit
Examiner.com called Peter Murphy "a natural storyteller," and Savvy Verse and Wit said, "Murphy’s style is as complex as his characters, but readers will be absorbed in the forlorn myths and legends created and expounded upon.” Peter Murphy brings Ireland – both the real land and the land of legend – to life in lyrical, nuanced prose that has a music all its own.
“The author stirred a multitude of emotions with his tale.” – Beth Art from the Heart
