I think the Mitford Series is wonderfully appealing. The story of an older Episcopal priest who marries late in life and lives in a small town in N. C. has a no. of interesting town characters and mountain folk situations. Father Tom retires but is unhappy then he decides to take on a unique and difficult ministry. He feels newly energized and even begins to think he likes changes-until an unexpected event propels him on a painful journey that shakes his faith, his marriage, and the whole town of Mitford.
Jan Karon has built such believable characters. I, too, hate to see each book finished. I want to meet these people, they sound so nice (well, except the witch from the mountain). When are you writing more, Ms. Karon?
