The everyday complications of village life are very different from the challenges Dr. Fingal faced nearly thirty years earlier, when fresh out of medical school. The young Dr. O'Reilly accepts a post at the Aungier Street Dispensary, tending to the impoverished denizens of Dublin's tenement slums. Yet even as he tries to make a difference, Fingal's tireless devotion to his patients may cost him his own true love. Shifting between the present and the past, this story brings to life both the green young man O'Reilly once was and the canny village doctor he has become.

Although I found it a challenge to jump back and forth between time periods, I eventually got the hang of it. I enjoyed much of the story and skipped parts that I found to be a little tedious.
Great sense of humour which I enjoyed. Found the medical stuff well written and illuminating. I've enjoyed and look forward to enjoying more of the writer's novels.
