Publisher's Summary

It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old. Suddenly Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And listeners get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.
Don't miss out on the rest of Father Tim's adventures in Mitford.

Go for Unabridged version

A friend at work told me about this series. I downloaded the abridged version, and told my friend I just didn't like the story as much as she did. She borrowed it and hated it--the unabridged version was much better, she said. I wholeheartedly agree. Having listened to both, there's no comparison: the unabridged version is richer, funnier, and more touching and heart-warming than the parsed over abridged version. It's worth listening to the extra hours. It's a wonderfully COMPLETE story!

Spell Binding

This book was recommended to me by several friends. I haven't read a book in a great many years but when I sat down with this one I was glued to it. I love the little family, the little town and all the members of the town. Every single person in the book are so real you wish you lived there. When I finished this book, I immediately ran out and bought the next in the series, and then the next after that. Once you start reading, you need to know that you won't be able to stop after the first book.
