My second foray into the Irish Village/doctor series. This book departs, however, from the doctors and delves into the early life of their cook/housekeeper, "Kinky" Maureen Kincaid.

If you've read any of the series, (and I myself only read one before this book), you learn/know Kinky is
fey - or has the sight. Basically, she is physic an an see into the future.

This book focuses on how and when she came into her gift (or curse, depending on how you look at it). It is a very poignant story and very sad at times. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was also, very, very amazed at how Irish legend and folklore have contributed/inspired, other genres/ series I have been delving into recently - most curiously, the "Fever" series (Shadow Fever, Fae Fever, etc.)

Willow Brook Sounds like another good one. Sure wish they were cheaper for the Kindle. Guess I'll need to see what my little library has.
