Staff Reviews

In these delightful tales of turn-of-the-century country life, we follow the adventures of the hapless Major Sinclair Yeates, Resident Magistrate-newly arrived in the West of Ireland and unprepared for the challenges the new locals have in store for him.

— Deon Stonehouse


"As the straight-man narrator, observer, and regular butt of hundreds of hilarious trials and mishaps, Major Yeates never ceases to be surprised, is usually not amused, and can't stop himself from loving his Irish neighbors."-500 Great Books by Women.

About the Author

Edith Somerville and Martin Ross were second cousins born to distant branches of a prominent Anglo-Irish Ascendancy family. They lived together at the Somerville home for most of their adult lives, traveling frequently to Europe and collaborating on numerous books and articles. Their most famous novel, The Real Charlotte, was published in 1894. After Ross's death in 1915, Somerville continued to write and publish under both names, claiming that the partnership endured beyond the grave.
