    After more than 38 years, Father Tim Kavanagh returns to his childhood home of Holly Springs, Mississippi, on a profoundly personal journey. Whatever became of Tommy Noles, his forbidden childhood friend, and Peggy, the loving woman who was like his second mother? What were the facts behind the court trial that drove the Kavanagh family even further apart?

    "Wrong Narrator"
    Overall

    Having listened to, and loved, the entire Mitford series, I was thrilled when "Home to Holly Springs" came out. The fact is though that I could not get past the first 5 minutes. The original narrator of the Mitford books, John McDonough, set the standard for who Father Tim was. He became Father Tim for me. Why they decided to change that is beyond me. Scott Sowers is a terrible choice. He sounds like he is in his 20's or 30's, not an elderly gentleman of 70 plus years.
    On the bright side...I purchased the book and it was absolutely wonderful! I loved it. Now if Jan Karon came to her senses and allowed it to be rerecorded with Mr. McDonough!
