The Mitford Series books are those I want to read over and over. I'd give each in the series 10 stars if possible. I love them because it's like reading about old friends and 'going home', even if you never had a home like that, you'd want one. The stories are funny, some suspense, mystery and everything else a good book has. You can get lost in them and feel like you are right there in Mitford. And, for some reason, while reading these books, they give you a comforting and peaceful feeling...I just feel good when reading them and after reading them. These people are ones you want to know and hope really exist someplace, somewhere. I'd recommend them to anyone who loves reading about small town life, feeling you know the people you're reading about, and like the comfort you can get when reading a good book. I just LOVE the series.

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.
