An Irish James Herriot

An Irish Doctor in Peace and at War: An Irish Country Novel - Patrick Taylor

For those of you who liked James Herriot's veterinarian books, but weren't so enthusiastic about reading about a young bloke with his arm halfway up the back of a cow yet again, these books are for you. Doctor O'Riley is an Irish general practice doctor in a small, pastoral village in the 50s and 60s. A rather pleasant journey, and a book you wouldn't be ashamed to give your older, more judgmental and straight-laced relatives.
