I read it, enjoyed it, and I don't want to read any more of the series. Not dysfunctional enough (except to the extent that ALL Episcopalians are dysfunctional).

It took me two or three chapters to get into this book, but once I did, I found it a good read. The characters are interesting, and the storyline is enjoyable. I would love to visit Mitford!

"At Home in Mitford" is the first book in Jan Karon's series about the small mountain town of Mitford, N.C., and its Episcopal priest, Father Tim Kavanagh. Fr. Tim is 60-ish and his quiet bachelor life is about to be invaded by a new neighbor, a dog "the size of a Buick" and an 11-year-old boy, Dooley Barlowe -- not to mention a jewel thief living in the church attic. Once you read this, you'll want to read the rest of the series, too.

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.

LOVE IT. I fell in love with this series from the very beginning. I have come to think of the characters as family, I care about what happens to them. I will be sad when the series ends.

When I first started reading this book, I was a little bit skeptical about whether I would like it or not, but it soon began to grow on me, as I became more familiar with the characters. Well before the end, I began to love it, and now I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

The first in a series of novels, this heartwarming book introduces readers to a small, charming North Carolina town and its equally charming denizens. Filled with the mysteries and miracles of everyday life and rich, provincial humor, At Home in Mitford will have readers clamoring for more. Followed by a sequel, A Light in the Window

The first book in the Midford series. In the front it says
"Jan Karon writes to applaud the extraordinary beauty of ordinary lives" I think that is a great description. It would be great to have a friend like Father Tim.

Mitford is a charming little village that becomes like second home to the reader. Its rector, Father Tim, is a bachelor, enjoying the benefits of a small village such as getting to know everyone in town. This book is full of mystery, love, and village intrigue and will leave readers longing for more as it draws them into the life of Father Tim.
