Merry Christmas to Holly Bough readers

If you are a reader of the Holly Bough (2015 Christmas edition) and the Cork evening echo in Ireland this message is especially for you.  The book ‘Crossing the Water’ was mentioned at the end of the article ‘The Big Fella and the little fella’… this described my father-in-law’s meeting with Michael Collins and his involvement in one of the first shoot-outs of the war of independence. The book itself tells the story of the lives of two ‘children of Irish independence’ as an elegy to that generation – and it has had really great reviews from readers – see for yourself.

You can get it half-price as an ebook for your kindle between the 22nd and 26th of December 2015. Don’t worry if you don’t have a kindle, you can read it on any tablet, laptop or computer, if you install the (free) kindle app on your device.

To find out a bit more about the book on this website use the menu above by clicking on ‘Ian’s books’ in the top menu on this page. You can also inspect the amazon listing page and see the reviews by other readers at this link: kindle e-book (this is also where you can get it between the 22-26th).

It can also be ordered as a printed book from Amazon using this link printed book or from Waterstones branches.
