The An Irish Country Practice is the 12th heartwarming installment in New York Times and Globe and Mail best-selling author Patrick Taylor's beloved Irish Country series.
Once, not too long ago, there was just a single Irish country doctor tending to the lively little village of Ballybucklebo: Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly. Now his thriving practice is growing by leaps and bounds.
Not only has O'Reilly taken a new trainee under his wing, Doctor Connor Nelson, he's also added a spirited Labrador puppy to his ever-expanding household at Number One Main Street. Meanwhile, his trusted partner, young Doctor Barry Laverty, finds himself wondering if he's truly ready to settle down and start a family with his lovely fiancée, Sue.
As the doctors cope with domestic and professional challenges, they also look after their patients and their ailments, including a mysterious cough, a housewife whose frequent "accidents" may have a disturbing cause, and a respected colleague who might be succumbing to an old vice.
All is not sickness and worry, however. There's plenty of joy and merriment to be found as well, from a visiting circus to racing to sailing...and maybe even a happy ending or two.
This touching audiobook is as warm and cozy as the lovable town in which it takes place.

A bit dark
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Not as much as his other books.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I realize that a doctor's practice can be sad. After all, sick people are being treated. BUT, this one seemed darker to me. My favorite was An Irish Country Christmas because nobody died.
What about John Keating’s performance did you like?
Excellent, as always!
Did An Irish Country Practice inspire you to do anything?
