Patrick Taylor’s “Irish Country Girl” begins with Kinky (Mrs. Maureen Kincaid) inviting some little Christmas carolers indoors for hot black-current juice and a colorful scary folklore told in the way only a Celtic storyteller could. The excitement of the children mixed with Kinky’s Irish lilt is so enticing that I soon fell under Taylor’s Irish spell, settling back to hear (read) the tale of Connor MacTaggart and the Sidthe (pronounced “shee”) – the faeries in the Country Cork. The story is beautifully and magically written. It not not only entertains but teaches one so very much about the Irish culture, Gaelic words and some mythology .The story is actually a love story, or more than one. I was delighted with this book and look forward to reading more of Mr. Taylor’s books. The Skye in June
