About the Author
"Patrick Taylor has become probably the most popular Irish-Canadian writer of all time." ―The Globe and Mail
“Gentle humor, deeply emotional stories drawn from everyday life.” ―Kirkus Reviews on An Irish Doctor in Love and at Sea
"Deeply steeped in Irish country life and meticulous in detail, the story is the perfect companion for a comfy fire and a cup of tea or a pint of bitter. A totally wonderful read!" ―Library Journal, starred review, on An Irish Doctor in Peace and at War
"What Herriot did for Yorkshire, Taylor now does for Northern Ireland's County Antrim and County Down, minus the animals, of course, but with all the good sentiments." ―Kirkus Reviews on An Irish Country Wedding

I understand the author's contrast between the "pull together" residents of Ballybucklebow and the broader conflicts of Northern Ireland, but that's not why we are here. Fingal is a kindhearted bull of a man, Kinky is sweet and funny like Aunt Bee in Mayberry, Donal is bumbling comic relief, and Laverty is the young educated new-comer learning life's lessons from the lives of the locals. We buy the books for an annual visit with those characters.
I understand and appreciate Patrick Taylor's efforts to address the issues of the time, and he even recognizes and addresses the new direction this volume takes in his introduction. It's a mistake though. The "Irish Country" series is an escape to a place that no longer exists, if it ever did. We don't want the intrusions of real life here. We can find those elsewhere. The author had founded a delightful, funny, safe, little community., which was wonderful to visit once a year or so. It doesn't need to change or grow. Keep it as it is. The charm of the series will be lost if it heads off into this 'real life' direction.
And how bad things were. But with all the horror and tragedies in the world today it was so wonderful reading about a simpler, more innocent time in small town Ireland in Patrick Taylor’s previous books. We won’t finish this one ...
