Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the Northern Ireland village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there. But Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.

At least until he meets Dr. Fingal Flahertie OReilly.

The older physician has his own way of doing things. At first, Barry cant decide if the pugnacious OReilly is the biggest charlatan he has ever met or the best teacher he could ever hope for. Through OReilly, Barry soon gets to know all of the villages colourful and endearing residents and a host of other eccentric characters who make every day an education for the inexperienced young doctor.

Ballybucklebo is a long way from Belfast, and Barry is quick to discover that he still has a lot to learn about country life. But with pluck and compassion, and only the slightest touch of blarney, he will find out more about life—and love—than he ever imagined back in medical school.

About the Author
