Publisher's Summary

Love is in the air in the colourful Ulster village of Ballybucklebo, where Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly has finally proposed to the darling of his youth, Kitty O’Hallorhan. There’s a wedding to be planned, but before O’Reilly can make it to the altar, he and his young colleague, Barry Laverty, M.B., must deal with the usual round of eccentric patients—and crises both large and small.
Being a G.P. in a place like Ballybucklebo often means more than simply splinting broken bones and tending to aches and pains. It can also mean helping a struggling young couple acquire their first home, clearing the name of a cat accused of preying on a neighbor’s prize pigeons, and encouraging a bright working-class girl who dreams of someday becoming a doctor herself. And, if you’re Barry Laverty, still smarting from a painful breakup, there might even be a chance for a new romance with a lovely school teacher, if her passionate political convictions don’t get in the way.
Much has changed in Ballybucklebo, and bigger changes are in store, but the lives and practices of these Irish country doctors remain as captivating and irresistible as ever.

A delightful visit to Ballybucklebo Ireland

This has turned out to be one of my favorite series. The story is what I call a feel good story, that leaves you with a smile on your face and the desire to visit Ireland. In this book Dr Fingal O'Reilly and Kitty O'Hallorhan are getting married. Dr.Barry Laverty is leaving the village to get more training to specialize in Ob-Gyn. The life in the village continues and the doctors heal the sick and help to solve peoples problems. The author informs one of little bits of information about Ireland that might be difficult to learn in the normal course of visiting Ireland. Such as, the people from county Cork put SO at the end of each sentence. In this book there is a bit of ancient history of the Ulster area. I do hope that Patrick Taylor will continue this series. I read the first two books in large print hard back but when I switch to audiobooks it was so much more enjoyable. John Keating with his Irish accent is great and he can pronounce the words I was trying figure out how to pronounce. I had to keep reminding myself the story takes place in the late 1950 and early 1960's and that was the state of art of medicine at the time and of course no cell phones etc. Great book and series I am sure you will enjoy it as a break from your busy day.

Wonderful Story, Fabulous Narrator

I've purchased most of the books in this series and am always amazed at how entertaining the series can be. Theses are wonderful, wholesome, charming and at times funny stories about life in a small village in Ireland as seen through the eyes of it's two doctors.

The narrater made the stories come alive. His Irish brogue was perfect and at the same time understandable.
