Ferry Tales by Brendan Gisby

indie ebook cover

A collection of short stories set in the late l950's and early 1960's and based upon the author's own family whilst living in South Queensferry on the Southern shore of the River Forth in Scotland.

The stories are all beautifully written with the characters brought alive in a colourful and authentic manner. With his usual flair, Mr Gisby has managed to create a compilation of tales to warm and touch the heart of the reader. The tales contain depth, humour and pathos, and as always his characters generate compassion in the reader whilst they hold the interest from page to page.

A nice added touch is the fact that most of them re-appear in the different stories, and it's not until one has almost finished reading that one realises there is a continuing story-thread running throughout.

Equally entertaining as a whole read or as individual reads, this is a most delightful book to add to anyone's bookshelf, and is to be especially enjoyed when curled up in the warm on a Winter's evening.
