The New York Times bestselling tale of heartbreak and hope from the author of An Irish Country Doctor

Readers of Patrick Taylors books know Mrs. Kinky Kincaid as the unflappable housekeeper who looks after two frequently frazzled doctors in the colourful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. She is a trusted fixture in the lives of those around her, and it often seems as though Kinky has always been there.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Some forty-odd years before and many miles to the south, the girl who would someday be Kinky Kincaid was Maureen OHanlon, a farmers daughter growing up in the emerald hills and glens of County Cork. A precocious girl on the cusp of womanhood, Maureen has a head full of dreams, a heart open to romance, and something more: a gift for seeing beyond the ordinary into the mystic realm of fairies, spirits, and even the dreaded Banshee, whose terrifying wail she first hears on a snowy night in 1922. . . .

As she grows into a young woman, Maureen finds herself torn between love and her fondest aspirations, for the future is a mystery even for one blessed with the sight. Encountering both joy and sorrow, Maureen at last finds herself on the road to Ballybucklebo---and the strong and compassionate woman she was always destined to become.

An Irish Country Girl is another captivating tale by Patrick Taylor, a true Irish storyteller.

Review:

"Taylor (An Irish Country Doctor; etc.) continues his charm streak with this latest dip into Ballybucklebo, Ireland, spinning out the story of Kinky Kincaid. Known to series readers as the housekeeper for the town's two doctors (the protagonists of earlier books), Kinky takes her turn at center stage beginning on Christmas Day as she recounts the story of the St. Stephen's Day ghost to the village children. The story is set in her own childhood in County Cork, where Kinky, then Maureen O'Hanlon, develops the ability to see the future. As the older Kinky unspools a tale of dark fairies, a young Maureen navigates the complicated road from girlhood to adulthood, culminating with a tough decision whether to follow her heart or her career aspirations. Taylor, like Kinky, is a bangup storyteller who captivates and entertains from the first word. With its melodic language, compelling characters, and folklore-rich plot, this installment can stand on its own, though it's best enjoyed in the company of its predecessors."

I love this series, and I have read them all. I was so glad that he did a book about the housekeeper. Her story was engrossing. I can't wait for the next book in the series. A great summer read.
