Fingal O'Reilly, Irish Doctor (Irish Country Books)by Patrick Taylor
Synopses & Reviews
Discover how Dr. O'Reilly began his medical career in the tenements of Dublin in Patrick Taylors New York Times bestselling series.
Fans of Taylors bestselling Irish Country novels know Dr. Fingal Flahertie OReilly as the irascible senior partner of a general practice in the colourful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. Newly married to his long-lost sweetheart, hes ready to settle into domestic bliss, but theres always something requiring his attention, be it a riding accident, a difficult patient with a worrisome heart condition, a spot of grouse-hunting, or even some tricky shenanigans at the local dog races.
The everyday complications of village life are very different from the challenges Fingal faced nearly thirty years earlier, when, fresh out of medical school, the young Dr. OReilly accepts a post at the Aungier Street Dispensary, tending to the impoverished denizens of Dublins tenement slums. Yet even as he tries to make a difference, Fingals tireless devotion to his patients may cost him his own true love. . . .
Shifting back and forth between the present and the past, Patrick Taylors captivating Fingal OReilly brings to life both the green young man OReilly once was and the canny village doctor readers have come to know and admire.
