Spanning three generations of women and one century, In a Place Apart is about love, loss and family, but most importantly it is about the human spirit's ability to find peace after travail and to find a home, not just among people, but in place as well. It concerns the physical and emotional geography that describes all our lives

Praise for Phil Young's previous book, Patricia Lynch, Storyteller

'This is a beautiful book written with intelligence and understanding. It is immensely readable and gives a valuable insight to the background that influenced the stories of one of Ireland's best loved writers.'
(Teresa Doran, Books Ireland November 2007)

'Young lovingly chronicles what, in effect, was quite an extraordinary life."
(Colette Sheridan, Irish Examiner 18th Feb. 2006)

"The real achievement of this most welcome(and beautifully produced) study lies in the totally correct focus throughout on story and on the lasting influence on her work of traditional storytelling."
(Robert Dunbar, Irish Times 5th Nov. 2005)
