    (120)

    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?

    Sara says: "Interesting start to a new series"
    "Love Fr. Timothy"
    Overall

    As all of the books about Fr. Tim, I enjoyed this one very much however it was very disapointing at first because the familiar voices of the characters were not the same. This different reader did not do justice to the people we thought we knew so well from all the previous books.

    Mystery lovers everywhere are addicted to Donna Leon's ever-honorable Commissario Guido Brunetti and her portrayal of Venice's beautiful but sinister byways and canals. In Willful Behavior, Brunetti is approached for a favor by one of his wife's students. Intelligent and serious, Claudia Leonardo asks for his help in obtaining a pardon for a crime once committed by her now-dead grandfather.

    All characters seemed different because the reader was not the one from all the previous books. I did not recognize any of the characters that I loved in previous books.

    Sounded British
