Blessed Are the Cheesemakers, Sarah-Kate Lynch's tale of twinkly-eyed Irish dairy farmers, is somewhat over-processed for Helen Falconer's taste. Thus runs Blessed Are the Cheesemakers, the title of which, by the way, is a quote from that scene in Monty Python's Life of Brian when some bystanders on the edge of the crowd are trying to catch Jesus's words about the peacemakers.

Blessed are the Cheesemakers. I have enjoyed the book and it's characters so much. maybe 20 or so and I am only allowing myself to read one or two until one of her other books arrives in the mail. This writer really knows how to create characters that make you smile the whole time you are reading about them. I really care about the people and will always wonder how they are doing. That is how real they seem to me. Blessed are the readers. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 15 years ago.

Blessed are Corrie and Fee, for theirs is the kingdom of the world's tastiest farmhouse cheese. Tucked away in a corner of Ireland, the lifelong friends turn out batch after batch of perfect Coolarney Blues and Golds, thanks to co-operative cows, non-meat-eating fecund milkmaids, and the wind blowing just so in the right direction. Add to this mixture Corrie's long-lost granddaughter Abbey, fresh from a remote but by no means backward island where her husband has been on a mission - although not quite the kind which Abbey had imagined. And stir in New Yorker Kit Stephens, heart-broken, burned-out and permanently hungover, and you have a recipe for disaster. The magic that Corrie and Fee weave in and out of the cheese vats is legendary, but can they use their powers to turn bitterness and betrayal into love - or will the secret ingredient be lost to Coolarney cheese forever?

(3.5 stars) Three stories come together in an Irish dairy farm. Corrie and Fee are the elderly cheesemakers, who are desperate to find the next generation before it is too late. Their operation is a labor of love, with many quirks, including pregnant, vegetarian milkmaids who milk to the Sound of Music. Abbey is the granddaughter who was taken away from the farm by her mother, and after marrying at a young age, she lives on a Pacific Island with her husband who is obsessed with irrigation. When she finds out that he has been "irrigating" other pastures after he found out she cannot have children, she is horrified and leaves with a friend to return to the U.K. and find her family. The third part involves Kit, a stockbroker whose life has devolved after the death of his wife and unborn baby. His assistant sends him off to Ireland to dry out and get sober. Kit unwittingly is drawn into the contest for the cheesemaker position and meets Abbey. They must find out if they have the touch to make a cheese worthy of Corrie and Fee. The cheese has a life and power of its own in the story and lends a charming taste of magical realism to the tale. The story has lots of humor including a pregnant cat called Jesus and other delightful quirks.

Cheesemaking in the family, but really enjoyed finding out why these cheesemakers had set up their unique workforce and the way they solved the succession of their business. Unusual backstory and humane handling (for Ireland!) of the problem of unwed pregnancy.
Quite thought provoking.

I'm party of a cooking group in which we read books, cook according to the theme and then have Literary Luncheons.

I probably would not have read this book otherwise, but since I did, I might as well review it.

It's a nice summer read - very palatable. The characters are quirky, and yet the plot is predictable. Some of the concepts are funny and cute, others are a bit tiresome.

I loved the idea of having pregnant teens milking cows while singing show tunes, so the cows would give the best possible milk. Meanwhile, the teens are harbored and taken care of during their pregnancy and after the birth.

Parts of the storyline were psychologically improbable, but I guess not all books can be all good.

It's about love and cheese - if you like either of these, read it.

One of the best books I've ever read. I laughed. I cried. Amazing dialogue and characters.Don't miss this book.

I only have one word for this: quirky. Quirky isn't bad, it's just...different. The characters will definitely grow on you, fondly, and there are chuckles galore--I loved the Pregnasaurs--but there was a little bit of silly unbelieveability about this. Still, I enjoyed the setting and the aura of the mystical. And of course, you will learn a TON about cheese-making, which, being a fan of cheese, I found fascinating.

What a completely unusual and charming book. I couldn't put it down.
This book is just so much fun! It is quirky - very! - and playful. The characters are believable and the story wraps around itself delightfully, keeping me engaged to the very end. A definite re-reader!
