An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor


61. An Irish Country Doctor - first in the Irish Country series
by Patrick Taylor
fiction, 2007
library copy
unabridged audio cd, read by John Keating
finished, 12/23/09




After enjoying An Irish Country Christmas so much, I listened to the first in the series, An Irish Country Doctor, which chronicles the coming to Ballybucklebo of young Doctor Barry Laverty. I am completely smitten with these books, and am now listening to the second in the series. I love the characters, and how they connect to one another in the village. I find the medical treatments in this small place in the mid-1960s fascinating. And it is lovely watching this young doctor fall in love with the place and its people. And now, I'll let the author speak for himself.

  3. Love this series too! My Mom is from Ireland and reading these books brings me back to the summers I spent there with my grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.

    I haven't read Irish Country Christmas yet but the first two were great! Wonder if Patrick Taylor has anything else in store?

  4. Booksnyc, Lucky you spending time over there! And yes, there is a new one about Kinky! And the publisher is sending me a copy to review. I'm thrilled.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
