"Narrator John Keating has a field day with the humor,
long-winded stories, and colorful accents...Keating skillfully
presents the unique and sometimes-hilarious Irish take on joy,
sorrow, illness, and death."--AudioFile on An Irish
"Gentle humor, deeply emotional stories drawn from everyday life--Taylor's books are what Garrison Keillor might have produced if he'd been born in County Antrim." --Kirkus Reviews on An Irish Doctor in Love and at Sea"Deeply steeped in Irish country life and meticulous in detail, the story is the perfect companion for a comfy fire and a cup of tea or a pint of bitter. A totally wonderful read!" --Library Journal, starred review, on An Irish Doctor in Peace and at War
