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.
From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Justina: I love this series! Very excited for more stories with all the quirky characters.
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!
always enjoy getting caught up with Father Tim and his crew
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.
This is the first Mitford book I read. It was interesting with very well developed characters. Father Kavanagh and his wife Cynthia are delightful people and father Tim as he is known is so real. He laughs and cries with his flock as when he reports sales of almost $500 on one day in the bookstore to the owner . "Tears. Not hers. His." Father Tim's volunteering in the bookstore gives him an opportunity to give us some great quotes like, "All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened." - Ernest Hemingway. This book is indeed an example of that very apt quote.
"Love is an act of endless forgiveness"
