For all those who enjoyed the All Creatures Great and Small series by James Herriot, you’ll love the Irish country doctor series by Patrick Taylor. Substitute people for animals, Northern Ireland for the Yorkshire dales, and Drs. Barry Laverty and Fingal O’Reilly for James Herriot and Siegfried Farnon, and enjoy time spent with memorable characters, interesting medical developments, and a small-town setting in a series that ranges from WW2 to 1969 when the Troubles were just beginning. And there are even a few trusted Irish recipes as well!
