Frankie Ryan's Inheritance
by Don Myrick

Frankie Ryan leaves behind a small Newfoundland fishing community to study for the priesthood in Toronto. Within months seminary life begins to take a toll and he finds himself going through an intellectual and spiritual crisis that he can’t seem to work himself out of. He eventually finds that he has no choice but to leave the seminary. Rather than face the embarrassment returning home as a failure, he decides to make a life for himself on the mainland and following a series of misadventures and dead-ends he finally hits bottom. When a possible fresh start presents itself, Frankie is determined to make peace with his past and grab hold of the second chance life has presented him. A mysterious image in his hometown piques his curiosity and sends him on a journey to discover the truth about his hometown, his ancestors . . . and inadvertently a path forward for himself.

Don Myrick grew up in Newfoundland but spent his most of his adult life in Ontario where he worked as a cartographic technician for Natural Resources Canada in Ottawa. He draws upon a lifetime of experience in writing about Frankie, mixing plenty of “real fiction” in with the story. He was inspired by the spiritual journey of John Main and the monastic movement as it spread through Europe. He is retired and lives in Ottawa. Frankie Ryan’s Inheritance is his first novel.
