"After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he's lost his passion. His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion-for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley's brother, Sammy, still enraged by his mother's abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim's prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business. All this as Wanda's Feel Good Cafe; opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own?"--

Love these books. The characters feel like part of my family. Hopefully there will be more books in the future.

Jan Karon’s Mitford series are such an interesting read that make me feel great and with a huge desire to be a better person. It’s a real pleasure to read about all these good people, Father Tim and his wife Cynthia who are back from Ireland and he is still having trouble adjusting to retirement. I truly enjoyed reading this book where the weaknesses, mistakes, sympathies and love are ideally blend.

Time spent in Mitford with Father Tim is time well spent.

I have read all the Mitford books, they are delightful. You become friends with the characters and all their quirkiness. Father Tim can be a real hoot, and Cynthia is a delight. Strongly recommend all of these books to someone who is just discovering them. Great reads - you will be glad for the time you spend with the characters and the town of Mitford.

Thrilled to discover a new fictional community to spend time in - there are so many of these books! I read on and off all weekend and devoured this 500 pager. Looking forward to reading more!

Oh, I do so love the Mitford books! Love the way they're written, love the characters, love the humour, the compassion, the interaction between the characters, the story and the way all the little threads are drawn together in the telling thereof ... My only regret is that Father Tim and his kin are all growing older - as is the author - which means that somewhere down the line, there will have to be an ending ... :((

This was so disappointing, I couldn't finish the book. I LOVED all of the other Mitford books but this one didn't hold my interest at all.
