Passionate Arthur Flynn
Arthur has always clung to the notion of having one woman in his life, but dangerous liaisons, amorous women and a sprinkling of witchcraft conspire to confuse him in Derek Reid’s Passionate Arthur Flynn. With the love and help of his mother, Arthur has earned a place at Cambridge to work toward fulfilling his long-held ambition of becoming a doctor. But between paying for university and his daily expenses, finances are a struggle, so Arthur takes a job as an early morning milkman. Delivering the milk early in the morning won’t interfere with his studies ... or so he thinks. Very quickly Arthur finds himself doing more than just delivering milk. He becomes a listener, adviser, confident and, reluctantly, the heartthrob of the local community. And there are even more complications bubbling away in the deep recesses of time awaiting Passionate Arthur Flynn.

I found this book to be an interesting read for many reasons. The first is the rock-n-roll years historical value. Ever wanted to know what 50's youth really got up to? now's your chance. I am a bit of a stickler for historical accuracy, so I checked Cambridge City out to make sure the facts in the book were right, I am pleased to say they were, and a fun day I had as Cambridge is beautiful, King's college is awesome and the copper kettle tea rooms across the way do a mean black cherry cheesecake.
Being a woman, I was both fascinated and frustrated by the antics of Arthur Flynn, men can be so dumb at times when it comes to romance. Best of all, there is a twist to the tale.........
I can recommend this book as a very good read.. It would make a great film or even a TV slot..
Anyway check it out you will not be disappointed.
