Leah, Lennox and Paula Flynn

Eleven-year-old Leah Flynn and her parents, Lennox Flynn and Paula Flynn, tell the story of Lennox’s stroke just two days after he and Paula were married, how it prompted him to be Leah’s stay-at-home dad and music teacher, and the experience of discovering and nurturing Leah’s significant musical talent.
