Returning to Mitford has become addictive as I pick up the next book to find out what happens next with the residents of the small town. This book should have come with a tissue box--as I read on about developments in the lives of characters I've been following for three books, I couldn't help but be drawn into the events.
In this book, the author does not neglect to keep the reader up-to-date on familiar characters. However, the addition of new characters kept the material fresh and interesting. These books make a comfortable and relaxing read.
this cover is a pale pinkish brown not purple like the picture the ISBN matches.
This third in the Mitford series (At Home in Mitford)is another sympathetic portrayal of small-town Southern life with just enough drama to carry the plot and gracefully developed portraits of endearing characters.
This is book 3 of the Mitford Years. I loved this entire series and I'm usually more of a mystery lover. Father Tim is still one of my favorite characters. It is fun and inspiring to get to know him and the townspeople.
Jan Karon writes with a friendly style and the small town of Mitford becomes a magical reality (reflective of the musical Brigadoon) as the pages are turned. I enjoyed the read and the writing. Lois Johnson
