Dr. Laverty was thrilled to find an advertisement for an assistant to work in a basically rural area of Ireland not that far from the area where he'd been raised and trained as a physician. He'd leave the glory of becoming a brilliant surgeon to his classmates who stayed with the hospital--he wanted to see the people of a distinct region throughout the seasons of their lives. But was he quite ready for the practice he found himself in, where the current physician's attitude is "Never give the customers the upper hand"?
Wonderfully warm and humorous, and well worth the read!
A very entertaining story of Irish country life told with a lot of character, humor and heart. It has some language for those who may be sharing this with young children but I don't mind it I thought of a lot of life to the characters as it reminded my of my own irish family! I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator and his wonderful accents!
Charming story read by an excellent narrator. Wonderful characters, touching moments. The outcomes were very predictable but they were all positive so it is a nice feel good book.
This is a delightful story that will make you laugh out loud- but it will also give you a lump in your throat. The enchanting accent of the reader enriches the listening experience. This book will banish the blues.
I am going through a tough period in my life and this book has made me laugh out loudly and it's not a comedy. A delicious, down to earth country book. I'm not Irish and I loved it. Looking for the next one in the series!
Heartwarming and funny. We could use more of this kind of literature. It helped me understand the Irish culture and speech patterns better. Perfect reader! I could use a few more of these!
I was so delighted to discover this series. I love Irish stories and this one is one of the best I have come across. Fantastic characters and great narration. Such fun to listen too, I downloaded the second one immediately.
The narrator is extraordinary, amazing range and accents. I enjoyed listening to this story and felt transported to Ireland, days gone by.
You will enjoy this tale of the simple life of an Irish country doctor. Nice get away to rural Ireland.
