This is book 4 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.

For someone that doesn't like Series books, this is an exception to my thoughts. The Mitford series hooked me from book #1 and are just as good with book #4. I try to read other books in between, but find myself feeling too anxious to see what's going to happen next in the town of Mitford. I list them as I read them and will have all of them eventually, through her final chapter released this year. Thanks for taking time to read my review and for checking out my listing!

The fourth novel in the Mitford series. Father Tim, the Episcopal rector, and his wife are pondering the murky uncertainties of retirement, a brash new mayoral candidate is calling for aggressive development; a shady realtor with plans for a health spa is eyeing the beloved house on the hill; and, worst of all, the Sweet Stuff Bakery may be closing. Meanwhile, ordinary people engage in the extraordinary struggle of keeping body and soul together.

Can - or will - Father Tim save the charming integrity of Mitford and has he stopped feeling giddy as a teen-ager because of his loving wife? Love the characters, love the setting....we all need a little Mitford in our lives.

One of the books in the Mitford / Father Tim series. I read all the books in the series and enjoyed every one of them. Light and easy reading with many heart warming stories 'within' a story about community, good stewardship, friendship, love and more. Not my usual genre but I enjoyed Jan Karon's writing immensely. All the books in the series made the rounds of my book loving friends, and we all agreed, we wish there was at least 'one' more to read.

The fourth in the series really kept my attention. It was well written and imaginative. It didn't run long and blended in a mature way, all of the characters from the previous book and added some new ones as well. This particular book made me want to visit Mitford and get to know everyone and the quirky ways of this little hamlet.

To me, this is another way to enjoy a Jan Karon book - on audio cd! John McDonagh is the reader for most of the Mitford series, and he does a fabulous job. He portrays Father Tim exactly as I imagine him to be! If you love the books, you need to listen to the unabridged books on cd!

As well-written and enjoyable as the previous books in the series. Jan Karon is consistently able to allow us to experience the characters in Mitford going about their daily business like we're looking through a window or listening in on a phone conversation (without feeling voyeuristic!). Simply wonderful.
