Lovely! Wonderful! Inspiring! Makes you laugh, makes you cry! A perfect ending to the series but oh, how I wish it wasn't the end! The thought that there will be no more Mitford books makes me want to break down and bawl. Especially since she DID leave loose ends that Mitford fans will now have to wonder about forever...

The final Novel in teh Beloved Mitford Series. Father Timothy Kavanagh has never been asked to do the impossible - until now. The retired Episcopal priest takes on the revival of a mountain church that's been closed for forty years. Meanwhile, in Mitford, he's sent on a hunt for hidden treasure, and two beloved friends are called to come up higher. As he meets each new challenge, Father Tim is reminded anew of the most important lesson of all: It's never too late.

Father Timothy is back to do the impossible....revive a mountain church that has been closed for forty years. What a wonderful story that reminds all of us that it really isn't ever too late for anything. The best in the series and the last one.

An endearing look into a gentler time with good insights into people's behavior. Mitford is place some of us would like to be.

I loved this book! Once again I fell right into life with Father Timothy and Cynthia. It felt like I had just seen them and it was great to spend some more time with them.

Another wonderful look at our old friends in Mitford. Father Tim and Cynthia are "farm-sitting" at Meadowgate Farm for their dear friends who are off to France for a year. Father Tim is retired but his old bishop and closest friend, Stuart, asks him to resurrect a church up in the hills. He accepts the challenge and meets some of the most heart-warming people yet to grace Ms. Karon's books. Miracles abound in this volume and I don't want to give any of them away which would rob you of the joys. Apparently this is the last in the Mitford Years series and that makes me sad. I love all the people in Mitford, feel as if they are all old friends. Each new book was like a letter from home. There are moments of laughter and of tears that you don't want to miss.
