    Story
    (110)

    Since he was a boy growing up in Mississippi, Father Tim has lived what he calls "the life of the mind". Except for cooking and gardening and washing his dog, he never learned to savor the work of his hands. And then he finds a derelict nativity scene: twenty figures, including a flock of sheep, that have suffered the indignities of time and neglect.

    If you could sum up Shepherds Abiding in three words, what would they be?

    I have listened to the entire Mitford series and loved each book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Father Tim is great. A good man with human failings.


    What about John McDonough’s performance did you like?

    He is the voice of the Mitford series for me. I am not sure I could listen to the books with another narrator.

  • The Summons & The Brethren

    Story
    (356)

    The Summons: Once Judge Atlee was a powerful figure in Clanton, Mississippi. Now the judge is a sick, lonely old man who has withdrawn to his sprawling ancestral home. Knowing the end is near, Judge Atlee has issued a summons for his two sons to return to Clanton to discuss his estate. The Brethren: They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. In prison these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich, very fast.

    Story

    I always enjoy listening to books by John Grisham. The Summons was fine, but there were technical issues with The Brethern. Multiple times during the reading a sentence or two were repeated - like a stuck record. Most times the sentence was only repeated once, but on 2 occasions it was repeated twice. This broke the flow of the recording. That being said, I liked the narrator for The Brethern better than the narrator for The Summons.

    Receiving 2 books together was a good value, but I wish the download had been devided by book so I could choose which I wanted to listen to first.

    All good things, even laughter and orange marmalade cake, must come to an end. And in Light from Heaven, the long-anticipated final volume in the phenomenally successful Mitford Years series, Karon deftly ties up all the loose ends of Father Timothy Kavanagh's deeply affecting life.

    I have really enjoyed getting to know the characters of Mitford. I am sad to see the series end. The only thing I would change, is that I would have liked a scene with all 5 Barlow children together.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I really enjoy Ellis Peters' books. This is one of the first I listened to as an audiobook. It took a little while to catch on to all of the characters but was very good when I did.
