Sean P Gaughan

Sean Patrick Gaughan was schooled by catholic nuns. Later, as a mature student, he acquired the seeds of an education at Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham, graduating with a B.A. Humanities in 1980.

He lives in Nottinghamshire.

Thomas Clancy, son of an itinerant Irish farm labourer and a psychologically damaged English mother, has always been troubled by self-doubt. Having left a seminary because of doubts about the Catholic Faith, and subsequently failing in an attempt to become a schoolteacher, he now stands accused by his zealous mother, a convert to Catholicism, of being the cause of his father’s apparent suicide.

By chance, Thomas comes to know and admire a beautiful and immensely talented artist, older than himself, the daughter of a wealthy business man. So begins a passionate love affair.

What our readers are saying

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel - the sense of people, period and place. The rather bleak, post-war rural setting was utterly authentic.

The opening was gripping, the effects of which dictate the trajectory of both plot and the characters, conflicts and crises, and, for me, has a satisfying resolution.

There is also emotional depth, while the theme of the destructive nature of dogmatic belief and, indeed, the nonsense of such belief, will always be both contentious and culturally relevant.
