An Irish Country Village by Patrick Taylor


5 STARS. An Irish Country Village by Patrick Taylor is a sequel to An Irish Country Doctor. It continues the humorous saga of doctors Fingal O’Reilly and his young assistant Barry Laverty as they provide general pratice to the villagers of fictional Ballybucklebo in Ulster. A light- hearted, enjoyable tale, with colorful local characters. The antics of O’Reilly’s dog, Arthur Guinness and his cat, Lady MacBeth, contribute to the Irish flavor of the story. Kinky, the housekeeper, makes sure the doctors eat well, serving kippers, toast and marmalade for breakfast, mock turtle soup for dinner and sherry trifle for desert. The story has plenty of conflict and suspense that keeps the reader turning pages until the end. A thoroughly entertaining read. Amazon link:
