At Home in Mitford: The Mitford Years, Book 1

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich, provincial comedy in which mysteries and miracles abound.

Don't miss out on the rest of Father Tim's adventures in Mitford.

    "Molasses"

    It would be better to read this book than it is to listen to. Reading would permit one to skim over or even skip some of the long, elaborate descriptions of places or people. The problem is aggravated by the slow, uncompromisingly tedious reading speed.
    Overall the book seems to me to be just too cute. Nothing that happens seems to be of any real importance, and it's hard to tell if there is some sort of plot or not.

    "At Home in Mitford"

    If this is read any slower, it will put me to sleep. A little speed could add some reality to it.

    "Don't Bother"

    This is about a Catholic Priest. I thought it was inspirational romance. There is cursing and the use of God's name in vain frequently. I don't like this story at all. The narrator does well.

    "Sentimental, sugary schmaltz"

    Waste of time and a waste of a credit. Predictable, cutesy, syrupy, hokey, and sickening.
