Description

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 40-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.

Wonderful!

I have listened to the books up to this point and have enjoyed them all. But this book “An Irish Country Girl” was simply wonderful to listen. Great story and so well read. Thank you Mr. Taylor!

Stick with it!

I was undeterred by all of the reviews I had read here and purchased this book. It was my first by this author. The first few chapters, when Kinky is telling her story to the children is very off-putting and, to be honest, I almost abandoned it in agreement with the negative reviews. However, I stuck with it and ended up enjoying this book very much! Definitely worth it if you persist past the first few chapters.

Very enjoyable!

At first I was disappointed that the narrater was different to the previous books in the series but this is Kinky's story and Terry Donnelly did a great job. I enjoyed getting to know Kinky and her family. Now knowing her story will I've no doubt make the remaining books even more enjoyable.

Not up to par

Would you try another book from Patrick Taylor and/or Terry Donnelly?

Yes, I have read other books in this series and will go on to the rest.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The next in the series.

What didn’t you like about Terry Donnelly’s performance?

Although the varied children's voices were good, the overall performance was without much emotion.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Sorry, but no.

Any additional comments?

I am very disappointed in this book. I am absolutely hooked on the series and the characters in the village. It would have been nice to hear Kinky's story done well.

Love this series

I have enjoyed every minute if the Irish Country Doctor series by Patrick Taylor. I will say that this was my least favorite of all the books but evem with that said, I still loved it.It was great to have a backstory on the lovable houskeeper, Kinky Kencaid. I also would have preferred that the same narrator had read this book. It was a little disconderting for Kinky to have a new voice. Thank you Mr. Taylor for many hours of enjoyment.

Love love love

At first I had a hard time getting used to the female voice in this book but I soon got used to it and wow. I loved the story line and was enthralled every moment. I wish it had lasted longer. The history of the Irish ways and the connection to the “other side” was sooo gripping.

Charming and Poetic

This audiobook was such a pleasure to listen to.
I'm Irish and have always wanted to visit Ireland. My wish is to some day still.
I want to spend the majority of my time in the countryside and stay for a while to experience time with the folks that live there.
Patrick Taylor is a true Irish poet with the beautiful way that he wrote this book.
The descriptions of the characters surroundings and feelings were a pleasure to listen to.
When my father was close to the end of his life and could no longer read due to his failing eyesight, he thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mr. Taylor's audiobooks.
They gave him many hours of enjoyment and I am grateful to Mr. Taylor for that.
I actually emailed him to tell him and he wrote back to me!
That made it even more special to my father and me.
He offered to buy me a pint if I ever visit his hometown!
What a wonderful man.
This is the first audiobook I have listened to of his but certainly not the last!
I hope to listen to all of them.
Enjoy listening to this audiobook and getting to know the interesting characters and charming setting in Ireland.

At the Beginning

At the beginning I was telling myself that I was not going to enjoy the story. I missed Mr. Keating narrations.
What a kick in the teeth as each chapter grew me in...Bottom line (fishermen terms) It was just outstanding and I hated that it would end so.
Great Story Patrick!
