An Irish Country Girl' is the 4th book in Patrick Taylor's "Irish Country" series. I strongly recommend reading the first three books first. An Irish Country Girl' takes a step away from the doctor's, and gives us the charming tale of Kinky's girlhood, growing up in County Cork before moving to upland County Ulster and settling into Ballybuckleboo. A few questions are answered here, especially Kinky's ability to be fey at times.

Patrick Taylor first charmed readers with An Irish Country Doctor, a warm and enchanting novel in the tradition of James Herriot and Jan Karon. Now Taylor returns to the colorful Northern Ireland community of Ballybucklebo, where there's always something brewing beneath the village's deceptively sleepy surface. Young Doctor Barry Laverty has only just begun his assistantship under his eccentric mentor, Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly, but he already feels right at home in Ballybucklebo.

An Irish Country Doctor book. An Irish Country Doctor, first published in 2007, is a novel by a real medical doctor, Patrick Taylor. He was born in Bangor, Northern Island in 1941. He studied and practiced medicine.

Readers of Patrick Taylor's books know Mrs. Kinky Kincaid as the unflappable housekeeper who looks after two frequently frazzled doctors in the colourful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. She is a trusted fixture in the lives of those around her, and it often seems as though Kinky has always been there.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Some forty-odd years before and many miles to the south, the girl who would someday be Kinky Kincaid was Maureen O'Hanlon, a farmer's daughter growing up in the emerald hills and glens of County Cork. A precocious girl on the cusp of womanhood, Maureen has a head full of dreams, a heart open to romance, and something more: a gift for seeing beyond the ordinary into the mystic realm of fairies, spirits, and even the dreaded Banshee, whose terrifying wail she first hears on a snowy night in 1922….

As she grows into a young woman, Maureen finds herself torn between love and her fondest aspirations, for the future is a mystery even for one blessed with the sight. Encountering both joy and sorrow, Maureen at last finds herself on the road to Ballybucklebo―and the strong and compassionate woman she was always destined to become.

An Irish Country Girl is another captivating tale by Patrick Taylor, a true Irish storyteller.

'An Irish Country Girl' is the 4th book in Patrick Taylor's "Irish Country" series. I strongly recommend reading the first three books first. 'An Irish Country Doctor', 'An Irish Country Village', and 'An Irish Country Christmas', in that order. You should really get to know Kinky Kincaid (the doctor's housekeeper) as the woman she is today, before taking this pause in the stories of Dr. O'Reilly and Dr. Laverty's adventures and misadventures as country doctors back in 1960's Ireland. 'An Irish Country Girl' takes a step away from the doctor's, and gives us the charming tale of Kinky's girlhood, growing up in County Cork before moving to upland County Ulster and settling into Ballybuckleboo. A few questions are answered here, especially Kinky's ability to be fey at times.

As Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly, Caitlin "Kitty" O'Hallorhan, and young Dr. Barry Laverty make their way out of the house on Christmas day to Ballybuckleboo House for the marquis' Christmas Day Open House, housekeeper Kinky Kincaid welcomes the visiting children with hot black current juice and sweet mince pies ... and the promise of a tale of ghosts and spirits. Therefore, Kinky begins, with a tale from her own youth.

She tells of Conner MacTaggart, and how he cuts down a Blackthorn tree, even after being warned by Kinky's mother that the "Doov Shee", or dark fairies, live under Blackthorns. Kinky, known as Maureen back then, knew her older sister Fidelma, was sweet on Conner and planning to marry him. The story isn't a happy one, as Conner angers the Doov Shee and the Queen of the Doov Shee takes her revenge. The children leave satisfied at Kinky's tale, but as Kinky continues to prepare the doctor's Christmas dinner, her thoughts continue to wander back to the time of her girlhood, Fidelma's loss of Conner, and how Kinky met her own young husband Paudeen.

It was great to get to know Kinky better, but as I said you'll want to introduce yourself to her in the first books. It's better to know where she is now first, before getting acquainted with her as a girl. There's a lot to the tale, and the book is a fast read just as the previous 'Irish Country' books are. There was a little slowing at the end, drawing out the finale, but that would be the only grouse over the story. Taylor has the ability to absorb you into his world, take you all the way to Ireland and really feel what it was like for Kinky during that timeframe in a sometimes volatile place. Reading about Kinky made me feel young again too! Taylor is a talented and knowledgeable writer, speeding you through the pages with fully fleshed characters that you find yourself caring a great deal about.

Included in the back of the book are some of Kinky's recipes and a glossary of the Irish terms used in the book. Now I can't wait for the next book, and get back to Dr's O'Reilly and Laverty with their busy medical practice and budding romances. Thank you, Mr. Taylor, for another great installment in 'Irish Country'.

I have read the first three (of nine books) of the Irish Country Doctor series and thoroughly enjoyed each one. The same main characters populate these books, and it is advisable to begin with the first book as the story moves along in chronological time, from book to book. The medical scenes have the ring of authenticity, as well they should, since the author, Patrick Taylor is himself a medical doctor. He also weaves Irish sayings and words (often found in the glossary in the back of each book) plus Irish traditions and cultural events and points of view liberally within his stories. His characters are so believable, you would swear you would recognize them if they walked down your street. Taylor's approach to these stories is very reminiscent of James Herriot's vet books. The difference is the patients are people, instead of animals. Genuine warmth and humorous acceptance of peoples' eccentricities are hallmarks of both series. If you like Herriot's books, the chances are high you'll enjoy Taylor's also.

This is the fourth book in the Irish Country series (1 - "Irish Country Doctor", 2 - "Irish Country Village", 3 - "Irish Country Christmas", 4 - "Irish Country Girl", and 5 - "An Irish Country Courtship" is being published on September 28, 2010 ). My first experience was the Christmas story which hooked me and I had to go back to the beginning and read them all. Every book has been wonderful and the fifth book is on my birthday wish list since I know it will have to be wonderful as well.

Regarding the series as a whole: They are set in rural Ireland during the 1960s. The main characters are the established older doctor (Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly) who is bringing a younger doctor (Barry Laverty) into his practice to help ease the growing workload. The two physicians don't limit themselves to helping the residents of Balleybucklebo with their physical complaints. It seems that they end up with their fingers in many pies and the villagers look to them for their wisdom in helping with all life's problems. Mrs. Kinky Kincaid is the housekeeper and friend that looks over them and takes care of the home fires while these two run all over the countryside ministering to those who need them.

This particular book takes a detour and is primarily the story of Mrs. Kincaid and her early life (1920s) in County Cork prior to coming to Balleybucklebo. It's Christmas day and everyone in the household is out at various festivities except for Mrs. Kincaid. A group of children come to call and end up talking her into telling a story to them which ends up being her story from when she was a girl. Lots of Irish folklore is included and faeries and banshees make their appearance as well as other mythical creatures. A delightful historical lesson of that area is interwoven throughout the story.

I have always loved Kinky and thought she was such an interesting character that she deserved her own story. Obviously, the author did as well since that is exactly what this book is about. While I missed Dr O'Reilly and Dr. Laverty, I am sure they will make their appearance in the next installment which I am eagerly awaiting.

All of these books have been an absolute joy to read. The author really is Irish so it's authentic and the dialect/speech patterns used make you feel that you are a fly on the wall listening to the characters of this delightful little village. If this is the first time you have read one of these books, make sure to look in the back for a glossary of Irish terms. Not all of the dialogue makes sense to the American ear without it.

If, as a reader, you are looking for a high level of action or lots of plot with twists and turns, this book probably wouldn't be for you. It unfolds gently and meanders around just like the Irish mist so prevalent in the stories. If you enjoy slice-of-life books with a strong sense of place and time, this may be the perfect choice. I have found that I wait until I know I won't be rushed or hurried and will have the time to slowly savor each and every page before picking up Patrick Taylor's novels to read.

Beautiful writing, beautiful setting and a transport to a gentler time and place. One of my all-time favorites.
