These High Green Hills Author:Jan Karon "In this irresistible third book of The Mitford Years series, Father Tim is married to more than his lovable and eccentric Episcopal parishoners. He's also married to Cynthia, his vivacious and talented neighbor. — Suddenly, the routine existence of a sixty-something bachelor is out the window. How will they keep his sofa-sized dog at a safe dist... more »ance from her arrogant, albeit famous, cat? Can he learn to love the old-Italian villa look his wife is bent of giving the rectory?
These concerns pale, however, beside the growing pains of Dooley Barlowe, the thrown-away boy whom the rector loves as his own son. Then the poverty and violence of an area known as the Creek comes knocking at the rectory door.
Clearly, being at home in Mitford has its challenges. And, when the rector goes on a camping trip with the church youth group, he's forced to confront the toughest challenge of all- his own fears."« less
