Two American Fairy Tales
by Christopher J. Lawless
In these two tales of the gallant knights of the OShea family, Christopher J. Lawless brings the hope and simplicity of the classic fairy tale into the American South of the 1970s. The gallant knights save their fair maidens, and the brutes and villains get their just desserts. In Pat and T.J. OShea, Lawless continues the age-old tradition of chivalry, perfectly at home in a couple of blue-collar Southern boys who love their dear lasses and treat them as queens.
Inspired to write these tales after witnessing the role strong family bonds can play in a persons success, Lawless presents the OShea family as the American ideal: with family, they can make it through any hardship. While Two American Fairy Tales affectionately recalls the authors home of Southern Georgia, the settings are universal. They are small-town U.S.A. in all its glory. As you read these fairy tales, you can look at your window and envision that the stories are taking place right there, in your own hometown.
