    an engaging look at a rural Northern Ireland village circa 1965

    In the mid 1960s in Ballybucklebo, Northern Ireland, Dr. Fingal Flaherty O'Reilly has taken care of the villagers' health needs for years without much regard for his personal desires. Now he and his beloved Kitty O'Halloran are starting over. However, that blissful reunion leaves O'Reilly's housekeeper Kinky Kincaid fearing she will be unemployed soon.

    At the same the older general practitioner is re-finding love, his junior partner Dr. Barry Laverty is reconsidering becoming a full partner in a few months after a relationship fell apart; in fact he thinks he should just move on and start elsewhere. At the same time that Laverty struggles with what to do, town councilor Bertie Bishop cheats his irate employees.

    The latest Ballybucklebo historical tale (see An Irish County Girl) is an engaging look at a rural Northern Ireland village circa 1965. Although the two doctors and their personal relationships are the lead, the fun in this tale is to compare how far women have come in four and a half decades. Leisurely paced, fans of the Irish County saga will enjoy a trip back in time to Northern Ireland.

    Loved it!

    All of the Irish Country Series are great reads! Patrick Taylor is a wonderful story teller and I look forward to reading the next in the series. He will make you laugh and cry and you can't wait to see what happens to all the wonderful and colorful characters of Balleybucklebo.

    A warm and funny read, as always.

    Once again Patrick Taylor has opened up our little window into the lives of the residents of his sleepy little Irish village. Full of emotion and hilarity, the book pulls you in until you find yourself not only cheering for your new friends, but wishing you lived beside them! If you can read Dr, Taylor's books and not fall in love with them, "you've got no heart in your chest, so!"

    Delightful!

    Dr Laverty grows up and moves on and Fingal finally says goodbye to his long deceased wife to seek a new and loving relationship with an old flame.

    The rest of the Ballybucklebo folks offer many laughs as usual.
