I LOVE the Mitford Series! I often listen and read these books and over again. it is so much like going home. in fact my personal tradition is listening to Shepherds Abiding between Thanksgiving and Christmas every year. I just may be able to recite the whole thing by now!! lol
This series delights me continually. It's like I know the characters. What a gifted writer Jan Karon is. I will move into the next one, but am so very disappointed John McDonough isn't narrating and that it's an abridged recording. If the narrator is available, I think having him narrate every story about Father Tim would delight listeners.
Story was moving and worth the editing problems helps restore faith in others and God. Narration was great
Editing issues: Repeat of some parts. Ends some paragraphs abruptly and starts another paragraph.
John McDonough is definitely the best narrator I've ever heard. He is especially grand in this particular series. I do not like the lady narrator in this series at all.
This third installment of the Mitford series is as heartwarming and fun-filled as the first two.We see further developments in the character of Father Tim as he comes to terms with married life for the first time in 61 years, no easy task. Along the way, he offers comfort and compassion to those experiencing tragedy, sadness, and brokenness. There are many important life lessons to be learned from the sometimes wise and sometimes naive, Father Tim.
Father Tim - because he's so human I can almost see him!
I have listened to the series a few times and this book is the one that really stands out and stays in my heart. Laughing 1 minute and sobbing the next. So many lives are changed.
Lace and Poo Ball, Aunt Sadie, Dooley and Poo Ball's mother, Sissy and Sassy. Great people, a few who are from a living condition that is abhorrent and unimaginable. I "love" the love between the Father and Cynthia, so sweet. I also love that this series is Christian and has powerful morals.
