Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Keating

Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator John Keating takes on the twelfth story about Doctors O'Reilly and Laverty, who have their hands full with professional and personal quandaries in the rustic Irish village of Ballybucklebo during the late 1960s. O'Reilly is training a new doctor while keeping up with the unpredictable needs of his patients. Keating is masterful in his interpretations of the extensive cast of Irish characters. Both the first-time listener and a fan of the series can easily recognize each person by changes in tone, pace, and unique traits. Keating smoothly transitions from detailed medical procedures to laughable vignettes. One can easily visualize the verdant green hills and fresh sea air, making a visit with Keating in the driver's seat a jovial trip back in time. S.H.
