The story of the wedding of Father Kavanagh and Cynthia Coppersmith. All the beloved characters are in the book and I found it so heartwarming. I have to wonder why the author wrote this book after the books where they are already married. Very puzzling.

This is the 6th novel in the best-selling Mitford Years series. I loved every one of these books, but this is special because it is a wedding story. When I finished the series I was sad to leave these friends behind. Write more, Jan Karon!!!

"A Common Life": an excellent book. *It reveals more details of the Father's and his bride's wedding than told in the other books, yet it also holds true to those other books' information. A lovely love story.

This really should have been No. 3 in the series so if you are reading the Mitford series make this the third book you read. You'll see why. It is a continuation of the love affair between Father Tim and his beloved Cynthia. Fantastice series of books!

I really enjoy reading all of the Jan Karon books in her Mitford series. She does such an awesome job of building character. This was just another good book telling more about Mitford.

"I have given my heart completely only once, and that was to Him. Now He has, Himself, set aside in my heart a room for you. It is large and open and suffused with light, with no walls or boundaries to stifle us, and He has graciously fashioned it to give us warmth and shelter and joyous freedom until the end of our days."
This is the story of the love and wedding of beloved Father Tim and artist Cynthia. Mature loved beautifully described.

You will love the sixth book in the Mitford Series. Jan Karon is an engaging writer and you will fall in love with all of her characters. I read each book from the first and cannot put them down. I also enjoyed bringing the cassette book along on road trips to help the time fly.

As with all of the Mitford books, this one is excellent. But, it is out of sequence. It should be number three in the series. I don't know how it got to be number 6 instead. So, if you are reading collecting the books to read...read this one as number 3.

Sixth in the beloved series. These books are comforting and sweet, the story of life in a small American town the way we all wish it still was, with traditional values and eccentric characters.

I tend to gobble any book about Episcopal priests I can lay my hands on, and I've read most of this series. It's well written, but can get a bit too cloyingly sweet at times. This book apparently exists because faithful readers requested a book around the wedding. Would have liked a bit more about Dooley's feelings and perhaps some resolution there. As it is, there's a general sense that it's going to work out, but his feelings have the potential to be more fully worked out.

I enjoyed this one very much. I have read almost all of the Mitford books now. Although I have read them out of order, I still like to follow the charactes lives as they unfold.

A very special book in this wonderful series. It is the lovely, amusing and
heart-warming story of the wedding of the two central characters. It is my understanding that the series was originaly written without this chapter but that Jan Karon had so many requests that she went back and added it. Father Tim and Cynthia have become so dear to the readers that this is certainly understandable. Ms. Karon did a wonderful job of keeping it all very in character for these two with all the humor, sweetness and surprises that we have come to expect. It was a pure delight from start to finish.

This is a beautiful gift book and listed with a matching hardback gift copy of "Shepherds Abiding."

Mitford's Lord's Chapel seats barely two hundred souls, yet millions of Jan Karon's fans will be there for the most joyful event in years: the wedding of Father Tim Kavanagh and Cynthia Coppersmith. Here at last is A Common Life, and the long-awaited answers to these deeply probing questions: Will Father Tim fall apart when he takes his vows? Will Cynthia make it to the church on time? Who'll arrange the flowers and bake the wedding cake? And will Uncle Billy's prayers for a great joke be answered in time for the reception?

All the beloved Mitford characters will be there: Dooley Barlowe, Miss Sadie and Louella, Emma Newland, the mayor; in short, everybody who's anybody in the little town with the big heart.

A Common Life is the perfect gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversaries, and for a bride or groom to give to his or her beloved. In truth, it's perfect for anyone who believes in laughter, relies on hope, and celebrates love.

Another in the wonderful Mitford series - I have enjoyed each up-lifting book! The characters become like family and neighbors; you laugh and cry with each one; and as soon as you finish one book you can hardly wait to read the next.

I enjoyed this book, but didn't think it was of the same caliber as the first four. It goes back in time and tells the story including the perspective of some of the other characters.

I found this after I had read past it in the series. I just skimmed it and think I could have done without it since I was already past it and knew most of the information anyway.
