I won't spoil the story, but if you have read any of Patrick Taylor's other stories you'll meet some old friends,discover the back story for several secondary characters and generally have a great time spending an evening in Ballybucklebo. If you've never read any of his stories, it's a delightful little tale to introduce you to his Irish Country series. I think you'll enjoy your time in this small Irish village.

A very good short read. This short eBook fills in the time right after the Irish Country Doctor returns from service in World War II. For fans of this series it is a must read. My wife and I have read the complete series and cannot wait for the next book to appear.

Love is story but unhappy that I had to get it as a eBook. I love finding my books walking around a bookstore. That is how I found this author.

Sadly, I'll never know about this book by one of my favorite authors. I like having a book in hand, and don't plan to pay for some stupid electronic device just to read a book. Please, please print this one, " Home is the Sailor", Not everyone can afford a Nookbook.
