Fans of Taylor’s bestselling Irish Country novels know Dr.
Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly as the irascible senior partner of a general practice
in the colorful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. Newly married to his once
long-lost sweetheart, he’s ready to settle into domestic bliss, but there’s
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. O’Reilly accepts a post at the
Aungier Street Dispensary, tending to the impoverished denizens of Dublin’s
tenement slums. Yet even as he tries to make a difference, Fingal’s tireless
devotion to his patients may cost him his own true love …
Shifting back and forth between the present and the past,
Patrick Taylor’s captivating Fingal O’Reilly,
Irish Doctor, brings to life both the green young man O’Reilly once was and
the canny village doctor readers have come to know and admire.
