Publisher Comments:

Patrick Taylor first charmed readers with An Irish Country Doctor, a warm and enchanting novel in the tradition of James Herriot and Jan Karon. Now Taylor returns to the colorful Northern Ireland community of Ballybucklebo, where theres always something brewing beneath the villages deceptively sleepy surface.

Young Doctor Barry Laverty has only just begun his assistantship under his eccentric mentor, Dr. Fingal Flahertie OReilly, but he already feels right at home in Ballybucklebo. When the sudden death of a patient casts a cloud over Barrys reputation, his chances of establishing himself in the village are endangered, especially since the grieving widow is threatening a lawsuit.

Not all their challenges are medical in nature. When a greedy developer sets his sights on the very heart of the community, the village pub, its up to the doctors to save the Black Swan (affectionately known to the locals as the “Mucky Duck”) from being turned into an overpriced tourist trap. After all, the good citizens of Ballybucklebo need some place to drink to each others health….

Whether youve visited in the past, or are discovering Ballybucklebo for the first time, An Irish Country Village is an ideal location for anyone looking for wit, warmth, and just a touch of blarney.
