An Irish Country Village (Irish Country Books) : Sequel to the beloved New York Times bestseller "An Irish Country Doctor." Young doctor Barry Laverty has only just begun his assistantship under the eccentric Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly, but he already feels right at home in Ballybucklebo. When the sudden death of a patient casts a cloud over Barry's reputation, his chances of establishing himself in the village are endangered. While he anxiously waits for the postmortem results, Barry must regain the trust of the gossipy Ulster village one patient at a time. From a put-upon shopgirl with a mysterious rash to the troubled pregnancy of a young lass who's not quite married yet, Ballybucklebo provides plenty of cases to keep two country G.P.'s busy. When a greedy developer sets his sights on the very heart of the community - the village pub - it's up to the doctors to save the Black Swan from being turned into an overpriced tourist trap. After all, the good citizens of Ballybucklebo need some place to drink one another's health. . . .
