I think I was as torn as O'Reilly about which young doctor was going to stay, Barry or Jenny. I've really grown to like Jenny in these last couple of books. And Barry had started to grow whiny.
As usual, a celebration with the whole town closes the book and things work out in a satisfactory way for all involved. I definitely enjoyed my visit to Ballybucklebo.
The dual timelines don't come together well, especially in the first half of the book. Sorry Patrick, I'm a fan but this appears to be something foreign to the rest of the series.
As with the other books of the series, it focuses on the positives of this small community.

I live in a rural area of Northern Ireland and know a surgery very similar to Dr. Fingal O'Reilley's so can relate to all the
characters and events.
I cant wait to find out if Barry Laverty married the local schoolteacher and I guess I must have missed the book which
relates how Fingal met Kitty after all those years and how their relationship was rekindled. If you know which books cover these happenings, I would be so grateful if you would let me know as I would really love to purchase them.Perhaps you would let me have a list of the order in whish I should read all Patrick's books. I would be so very grateful
Hilarious as usual while providing an accurate history of the times which is well known to those of us who lived through them
Roll.on the next book in the series !
The whole concept of life in a small village based around a doctors practice is great.
I have read all these books and look forward to reading more.
I would recommend these books anyone who enjoys a mixture of Serious/Amusing stories
