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 readers get a rich, provincial comedy in which mysteries and miracles abound.

Loved it

Any additional comments?

Funny, quirky, and positive. This was my first Mitford book and I really enjoyed the narrator and the light hearted story of a North Carolina town and its aging Episcopal priest. Upbeat and filled with southern charm.

Rambling, Heartwarming, Joyful and Fun

Move over, Eudora Welty. I love the slow pace and the gentle narrative. It's a great change of pace from my usual fare of fantasy and science fiction. It's warm and funny and eminently enjoyable. I actually appreciate the reader's pauses and find it adds to the experience. One caveat, these novels are not-at-all-disguised proselytizations for the Christian faith, complete with altar calls, so if you're not into that sort of thing you may want to shy off. I just accept those evangelical sales pitches as part of the story (being so in character for Father Tim) that I don't let it bother me. I still enjoy the story so much that I couldn't wait to get subsequent books.
