Great Continuation of Irish Country Doctor Series,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Dublin Student Doctor (Irish Country #6) (Hardcover)
I have to say that Patrick Taylor has done it again!
We have the newest book in the Irish Country Doctor series, this novel, A Dublin Student Doctor that focuses on Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly.
The novel begins with the aftermath of An Irish Country Courtship: A Novel (Irish Country Books) with Doctor O'Reily newly engaged to Nurse Kitty O'Halloran and with Kinky Kincaid and his possible partner in his practice Doctor Barry Laverty.
Riding along and coming upon an accident with one of Taylor's favorite characters causes Doctor O'Reily to ride along to see to his patient in Dublin.
As Doctor O'Reily goes back to Dublin the readers are treated to hearing about his history and that of Nurse O'Halloran.
I have to say Taylor is very vivid in his writing and we get a glimpse at what conditions were like in Dublin in the 1930s and how far medicine has come. We also get to see Doctor O'Reily as a new residence and hearing how doctors were trained back in Dublin in the 1930s was awe inspiring. I just hope that when we continue with the Irish Country Doctor series we get to see more glimpses of Doctor O'Reily's past.
I was deeply disappointed when I got to the end of the novel since I really wanted it to continue on and I don't know if I will be able to wait another year for the next installment.

I completely relate to the disappointment over the end of a wonderful novel. I hope you recover, and that you find other excellent books to read in the meantime!

Well the latest offering is coming in a few short weeks so I am already planning on splurging on buying it for my Kindle An Irish Country Wedding (Irish Country Books)
