KIRKUS REVIEW

Young wayfarer Shane, searching for his Uncle Tim, finds shelter with the kindly O'Clery family in Dublin. Where had Uncle Tim disappeared to? The missing uncle appears at a time of crisis for the O'Clerys as their book shop burns and Tim rescues their daughter. This is a turgid tale -- with the ghost of Jonathan Swift reappearing, and the pace makes a dirge of the whole.
