Author Taylor, a born and bred Irish physician himself, has created the Irish Country Doctor series, of which this stand-alone is the latest installment. It’s the story of series hero Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly as a young man in 1930s Dublin, going against his father’s wishes to become a student doctor. It’s fun to read how different the practice of medicine once was (before smoking was recognized as a health hazard, for instance), but more than that, the story touches the heart with real life drama. If you like this one, try the rest of the series.
