"Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map, but the proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree jumps at the chance for an assistant's position at a small rural practice there. At least until he meets the pugnacious Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly. Ballybucklebo is a long way from Belfast, and Barry is quick to discover that he has a lot to learn about country life. But with pluck and compassion and the slightest touch of blarney, he'll find out more about life - and love - than he ever imagined."--Back cover.
