    It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old.

    "Narrator is slow"
    Overall

    The Mitford books are some of my all time favorite books so I thought I'd introduce my husband to them on one of our many rides from Maryland to Georgia to see his parents. The narrator read so slowly it almost put me to sleep at points. Other than that, the story in the first book is a bit slow too but by the end, you are totally involved in the lives of the characters.

    Christy Award-winner Jamie Langston Turner pens another inspiring tale of forgiveness and redemption in this well developed novel. This emotional story delves into the complexities of family relations and religious devotion. Her grandmother´┐Żs funeral brings Celia Coleman back to that small Georgia town that she swore never to step in again.

    "A Bob Jones Sermon"
    Overall

    Overall enjoyable but I am a born again Christian and understand where all of this was coming from. I don't think many non-Christians would be able to get past all of the mini-sermons within the so-called conversations or thought lives of the characters. I felt as if I was being preached to almost the entire book. Sort of like having to listen to 50 verses of Just As I Am until someone finally goes to the alter just to get it to stop. I did like how it emphasized God's grace and the fact that ALL have sinnned , and that no sin is too great for God's grace and forgiveness.

    At Ballantyne and Company, a genteel but failing auction house in the heart of London, Kick Keswick has been an expert on painting, furniture, and objets d'art for over 30 years. When Ballantyne falls victim to a corporate takeover by robber baron and womanizer Owen Brace, Kick is the next target for Brace's idea of romantic merger and acquisition.

    "Very Entertaining!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book very much. It was very entertaining and had a happy ending. A great way to relax and get away from everyday stresses.
