I read most of this series years ago. Now that I have an hour commute and a fantastic addiction to audio books, I had to have it! I am so glad I downloaded this! I have laughed outloud, cried and felt all the emotions. Father Tim...I wish he was part of my family, as well as the other characters from this amazing series! I want to live in Mitford.
I have an amazing love for spiritually based humor and "real life" applications. This story just touches your heart and makes you fall in love. The reader is PERFECT for Father Tim and the point of view for these stories! BRAVO!
I love Jan Karon's books. They are fun and always leave me feeling good. They are a story of people I become quickly attached to and enjoy their ups and downs and continuing goodness and kindness.
For those who like books with fast-paced action and a contrived plot, you won't enjoy this one. But for those of us who live for slow summer days with an occasional baseball game or a picnic, this is heaven.
You seem to drift back in time to a slower cadence.
Many stories all intriguing, with a sense of sweetness we seem to not have in the world of today.
Strength of character and purpose . Innocence I thought was gone from this earth.All here still alive and well.
I have listened to this series several times.It is one of my favorites. The everyday adventures of Father Tim, Cynthia, Dooley and the other inhabitants of Mitford, never fail to put a smile in my heart. John McDonough brings just the right down home voice to Jan Karon's memorable characters.
I have often wondered what people think as they see me driving with a silly grin on my face. If they only knew how happy this and every story in the Mitford series makes me.
I listened to Home to Holly Springs and fell in love with Fr. Tim and his lovely life. After listening to this first edition I was hooked. I'm currently on the 4th book, Out to Canaan and I am addicted to Mitford!!
I love all of Jan Karon's books in this series. I have read all of then at least 3 times and listened to them on audio once or twice. Heaven will be just like Mitford- with out the pain of course. Perfection
this book and it's reading is paced at the small town pace....for older folks. if you're looking for a book that moves slowly, who's main character does fairly normal things in a fairly normal town with fairly normal manners with fairly normal regularity, this one's for you. For me? Well, I tried...but when traffic started seeming fast compared to the pace of this book, I was done. Never finished it, which is a very unusual occurance for me.
