Cracking read
The Skipping Verger and Other Tales
Long time Island Connections readers may remember the often whimsical stories of one of our established writers, telling tales of Tenerife in times gone by.

30.09.2012 - Those tales and several new ones have been gathered into a book of short stories which is now available in paperback from Amazon. John Reid Young is a very talented writer whose family has been connected with the Canaries for many decades and he has drawn on personal experience and legendary family stories to tell some marvellous tales which interest, intrigue and entertain. Anyone who has a soft spot for Tenerife, especially the island as it was a few years ago, will love this book. A perfect fun read whether for home or holiday, a grand gift (looking ahead for Christmas) and as John says, If my eccentricity appeals, then why not tell your friends about it too? A tip from the author - Amazon Spain offer this book quite a bit cheaper than Amazon UK if you are ordering it from the Canaries.
