In Back of the Shamrock
By: Doug Lowe
About the Book
East Durham, a small Irish resort town in upstate New York, was the backdrop to an innocent childhood for a tight-knit group of friends.
From sledding adventures in the winter to endless summers at the ball field in back of the Shamrock, Frazer, Doc, Ranker, Whiz, and more shared childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood experiences that shaped who they became as men.
As the boys become men and eventually go their separate ways, a tragedy brings them together once again and reveals the true strength of their lifelong bond and their unyielding loyalty to one another.
