An Irish Country Wedding

Finished December 23
An Irish Country Wedding by Patrick Taylor

This book continues the series set around the Northern Ireland village of Ballybucklebo in County Down. As the book begins Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly is looking six weeks ahead to his wedding to Kitty O'Hallorhan. Dr. Barry Laverty gets reaquainted with a politically active schoolteacher. Their housekeeper, Kinky gets hospitalized by a sudden illness, and that makes her even more worried about her future. Young patient Colin survives broken bones and the necessary loss of a loved pet.
We get updates on several other of the village characters due to illnesses, recoveries, and other activities that the doctors get involved in for the sake of the patients they care for.
We also get to see Fingal's brother Lars and updated on his life.
And the book culminates with the wedding and a change to Barry's circumstances.
A feel-good book about village life, and the lives of the people who live there.
