    Book details

Barry Laverty, M.B., is looking forward to his first Christmas in the cozy village of Ballybucklebo, at least until he learns that his sweetheart, Patricia, might not be coming home for the holidays. That unhappy prospect dampens his spirits somewhat, but Barry has little time to dwell on his romantic disappointments. Christmas may be drawing nigh, but there is little peace to be found on earth, especially for a young doctor plying his trade in the emerald hills and glens of rural Ireland.

Along with his senior partner, Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly, Barry has his hands full dealing with seasonal coughs and colds, as well as the occasional medical emergency. To add to the doctors' worries, competition arrives in the form of a patient-poaching new physician whose quackery threatens the health and well-being of the good people of Ballybucklebo. Can one territory support three hungry doctors? Barry has his doubts.

But the wintry days and nights are not without a few tidings of comfort and joy. Between their hectic medical practice, Rugby Club parties, and the kiddies' Christmas Pageant, the two doctors still find time to play Santa Claus to a struggling single mother with a sick child and not enough money in the bank. Snow is rare in Ulster, and so are miracles, but that doesn't mean they never happen. . . .

  • By Guest on 14 March 2017

    Very impressed with both the book and the service, Thank you.

    As one of the cover reviews says it's very similar to Dr Finlay's Casebook, a Scottish country doctor. It's sentimental and predictable. These doctors eat and drink a lot and the food is described in detail. There are the usual cases for the doctors to solve. Ok if you like this sort of thing.

    This is a series you must not miss, it keeps you smiling all the way through.

    A relaxing read after a tiring day. Sometimes a bit predictable, but nonetheless, the characters are alive and the reader becomes entangled with their dilemmas. The style is not quite as witty and amusing as similar series, eg. by James Herriot, but to be recommended all the same.

    He wouldn't be the first doctor to turn author.A.J Cronin did likewise.We know County Down,having lived there and this tale is one of enchantment for us,having experienced the warmth and glow of many good Irish Christmasses
