Top critical review
An okay entry into the series
Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2019
I really enjoy learning about Dr. Fingal O'Reilly's past, but the movement between time periods just did not transition as smoothly as in the previous book dealing with his past. Not sure why. Also, far more history lessons than the norm seemed crammed unnaturally into conversations.
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.
