Publisher's Summary

Long before Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly came to the colourful Irish village of Ballybucklebo, young Surgeon-Lieutenant O'Reilly answered the call of duty to serve in World War II. Fingal just wants to marry his beloved Deirdre and live happily ever after. First, he must hone his skills at a British naval hospital before reporting back to the HMS Warspite, where, as a ship's doctor, he faces danger upon the high seas. With German bombers a constant threat, the future has never been more uncertain, but Fingal and Deirdre are determined to make a life together...no matter what may lie ahead.

Decades later the war is long over, and O'Reilly is content to mend the bodies and souls of his patients in Ballybucklebo, but there are still changes and challenges aplenty. A difficult pregnancy as well as an old colleague badly in denial concerning his own serious medical condition test O'Reilly and his young partner, Barry Laverty. But even with all that occupies him in the present, can O'Reilly ever truly let go of the ghosts from his past?

Shifting effortlessly between two singular eras, best-selling author Patrick Taylor continues the story of O'Reilly's wartime experiences while vividly bringing the daily joys and struggles of Ballybucklebo to life once more.

    "Perfect as always !"

    Patrick always captures your heart and draws you in to this wonderful world of grace, dignity and warmth that makes you wish that life could truly imitate art.

    John Keating's remarkable narration leaves me astonished ! How in the world does he do it ??? I am mesmerized.

    Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    Story
    "Deja vu all over again!"

    This book is a "cut and paste'" edition from all the former books in the Irish Doctor series. I frankly felt cheated that I used a credit to re-read all the stories I had read before, In addition,it was VERY CONFUSING. The author tells of the first wife and then switches back and forth to the second wife (20 years apart) with out any explanation. That being said, I still recommend all the preceding books in this delightful series. The excellent narration is the only reason I kept reading.
