Set on a small Irish dairy farm, this tender and funny debut novel follows two lost souls as they try to carve out new lives amid a colorful cast of characters reminiscent of those in the hit film Waking Ned Divine. Abby has been estranged from the family farm since her rebellious mother ran off with her when she was a small child. Kit is a burned out New York stockbroker who's down on his luck. But that's all about to change, now that he and Abby have converged on the farm just in time to help Corrie and Fee, two old cheesemakers in a time of need. Full of delightful and quirky characters--from dairy cows who only give their best product to pregnant, vegetarian teens to an odd collection of whiskey-soaked men and broken-hearted women who find refuge under Corrie and Fee's roof--BLESSED ARE THE CHEESEMAKERS is an irresistible tale about taking life's spilled milk and turning it into the best cheese in the world.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: If you're looking for a book that combines drama, travel, interesting characters, cheese making and life choices...all wrapped up with a thick layer of comedic humour, then pick up this novel from our library for a good read. Set amongst the rolling hills of Ireland, two people collide between cows, rind and heartbreak. This book will be hard to put down at night - and may also make you want to sneak off to the fridge for a good chunk of cheese!

3.5 stars. This was a middle-of-the-road book for me. I didn’t dislike it, nor did I love it. It was a fairly fun, quick and charming read with some magical realism thrown in for good measure. The main protagonists were kind of boring, but the supporting cast of characters carried the story well.

The story starts off slow, yet I found myself warmed up to it.
