In the summer of 1965, doctors O’Reilly and Laverty can be found working comfortably alongside each other in idyllic Ballybucklebo, Ireland. Sharing a general practice in the small village means lots of aches and pains and the occasional emergency, but there always seems to be time for a predinner Jameson. When their loyal housekeeper is suddenly sent to the hospital with a mysterious pain, the peace at their place is interrupted by visiting hours, burnt dinners, rowdy pets, temporary help, burgeoning romance, wedding plans, and a possible career change. In the latest installment in the Irish Country series, Taylor continues the adventures of the much-loved doctors and the Ballybucklebo villagers, complete with a glossary of authentic Irish slang. While longtime lovers of the series will enjoy this episode, new readers might want to start with an earlier entry. Fans of Frank Delaney, Jan Karon, and Gail Fraser will appreciate Taylor’s humorous, dialect-tinged take on small-town drama. A spirited and compassionate story filled with pastoral Irish imagery, cheerful village life, and heartwarming romance. --Stephanie Turza
