An Irish Country Family (Irish Country Books)

We rated this book:


This is a nice read if you’d like to enjoy a little bit of Irish culture with a group of good-natured characters. This was the first book I have read in the “Irish Country” series and I’d be happy if it wasn’t my last. I enjoyed reading about the characters, set in rural Ireland in the 1960s. It’s not historical fiction, but I’d say that if you enjoy historical fiction and are looking for a novel, this is enjoyable to read. It gave a glimpse into life in Ireland in the 1960s with the typical cultural expectations of males vs females during that time period and a touch of the political climate of the times. The characters are interesting and likable and you get a good dose of medical knowledge if that’s of interest to you as the main characters are doctors or student doctors and nurses, who explain the various ailments of their cases along the way. My only drawback is that if you’ve never read the series, it can be a bit confusing to sort out all of the characters. For this reason, you should pay close attention as you start out to keep up with it. I think I would enjoy more books in the series now that I am familiar with the characters.
