The Shepherd and the Morning Star Description

The Shepherd and the Morning Star is a remarkable double biography and autobiography. In the course of it the life of the son, Willie Orr, gradually emerges from under the shadow of that of his father, Lawrence Orr (PB), leading Ulster Unionist politician, philanderer and would-be bigamist, who ends his days in disgrace with his career and family in ruins.Rootless and troubled, Willie himself went through various jobs ? in the Belfast shipyards, as an actor, as a helper in the Iona Community. He suffered a severe nervous breakdown from which he slowly recovered, finding purpose and fulfilment working as a shepherd for many years and then later retraining as a teacher. In between times he wrote as a journalist for the Scotsman and with his wife set up a counselling service for adolescents in Oban.This book is a deeply absorbing and powerful piece of writing, a record of mood and emotional development as much as a detailed chronology. Very funny in parts and with a poet's sensitivity in others, it explores that precarious territory between the public and private lives of politicians. It ends with a glimpse of redemption and healing, a coming to terms with the ghosts of the past.

First experience of an outfit I had never heard of before.

I knew the title and the author of the book that I was looking for, I imagine I chose OnLine because it offered the best value and free postage. But I was apprehensive because I had never heard of them. Being UK based reduced my uneasiness. However I have dealt with Wordery before ---- so my confidence level increased sufficiently to place my order. Book was delivered on time as expected, for which many thanks.

This web site is not clear! I thought I was writing a review on "OnLine" which I have now done. But how was I meant to send it to you? I had thought that the phrase Leave Review with a green back ground would do the trick.

Now it seems you are wanting THREE REVIEWS
1. On "Online"
2. On the seller
3. On the book itself, even though I haven't read it yet.

All in all, this web site needs improvement!
