Professional football player, Calder
'Fin' Finnegan lived his life believing he was a big
disappointment in his fatherís eyes, no matter how much he
accomplished in his life. Reluctantly, he returned home to
Boston at his father's request, a place he has been to very
infrequently over the past six years. He was needed to look
after the family owned pub so his father could take a
much-needed vacation back to his homeland of Ireland.
Sean Finnegan loved his son, to him a
good father provided for his family even though it meant not
spending much time with them. Now with his health fading due
to cancer, Sean wants to make things right with his son and
hopefully his friend and bartender at the pub, Mick Sullivan
will be able to help.
Finnegan's Promise, was an
enjoyable and emotional story, the term 'feel good' keeps
coming to mind as I think of how to describe it. Through Sean
and Fin's journey to become a family again before it was too
late Carole Lynne showed how actions don't always take the
place of words. I can't decide which touch me more, Mick
helping Fin to realize what a beautiful person he is, and how
he is someone worth loving and capable of giving love. Or Fin
finally understanding that his father wasn't ashamed of him,
that it was the total opposite. His father was more proud than
any father could be of their son, his only shame was making it
known to every one except Fin.
I Joyfully Recommend Finnegan's
Promise, and have kleenex nearby because you will need it.
