Patrick Taylor's devoted readers and listeners know Doctor Fingal Flahertie O Reilly as a pugnacious general practitioner in the quaint Irish village of Ballybucklebo. Now Taylor turns back the clock to give us a portrait of the young Fingal - and show us the pivotal events that shaped the man he would become.

In the 1930s, fresh from a stint in the Royal Navy Reserve, and against the wishes of his disapproving father, Fingal O Reilly goes to Dublin to study medicine. Fingal and his fellow aspiring doctors face the arduous demands of Trinity College and Sir Patrick Dun's Hospital. The hours are long and the cases challenging, but Fingal manages to find time to box and play rugby - and to romance a fetching, gray-eyed nurse named Kitty O Hallorhan.

Dublin is a city of slums and tenements, where brutal poverty breeds diseases that the limited medical knowledge of the time is often ill-equipped to handle. His teachers warn Fingal not to become too attached to his patients, but can he truly harden himself to the suffering he sees all around him - or can he find a way to care for his patients without breaking his heart?

A Dublin Student Doctor is a moving, deeply human story that will touch longtime fans as well as listeners who are meeting Doctor Fingal O Reilly for the very first time.

    " I really enjoy this series. It is a glimpse into not only a doctor's way of life but also a small Irish village way of life that does not exist anymore. A charming series. "

    " My Wendy gave me this book for my birthday and I finally gotten around to reading it. Another great work by Mr. Taylor. If you haven't read this series I highly recommend it. It is a great, down to earth story that makes you feel like you are right there with the characters. This books gave a look into the early life of the the good Dr. I loved it. I cried and cheered just like if I was there. Looking forward to reading his most recent book that I got for Christmas! "
