"An Irish Country Doctor" by Patrick Taylor

Ballybucklebo, a quaint town in Ireland and home of Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly and a myriad of other fascinating characters. Dr. Barry Laverty answers an ad about becoming an assistant to Dr. O'Reilly and his world changes. Laverty soon learns that being a doctor is more than just doing paperwork and using big words. But, is O'Reilly's bedside manner correct? Is this really where Laverty wants to work and live?

This book was a real joy to read and will make you feel good about others. I found myself engrossed from the start with the setting and the characters. I would love to really meet them! It is an easy read and one I will pick up again.
