These books leave me in the most restful mood. Even more than that, I feel connected to a part of my background and lineage - I can hear the characters talking as if I was right there in Ballybucklebo. The only other writing that evokes similar literary 'nourishment' are All Creatures Great and Small (the series by James Herriot, which is VERY much like these books), and the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, by Alexander McCall Smith (which create a restful mood but in a very different setting).
I cannot wait to crack open An Irish COuntry Girl, and am looking forward to the next book about Drs. O'Reilly and Laverty.
