Publisher's Summary

Father Tim and Cynthia have been at home in Mitford for three years since returning from Whitecap Island.

In the little town that's home-away-from-home to millions of readers, life hums along as usual. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet; Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners; and Percy steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Main Street Grill.

Though Father Tim dislikes change, he dislikes retirement even more. As he and Cynthia gear up for a year-long ministry across the state line, a series of events sends shock waves through his faith, and the whole town of Mitford.

In her seventh novel in the best-selling Mitford Years series, Jan Karon delivers surprises of every kind, including the return of the man in the attic and an ending that no one in Mitford will ever forget.

    What a charming pleasure to listen to. I feel sorry to have such a positive and quirky series drawing to a close. Well written, engaging and beautifully read.

    Mary in Palos Verdes 15 year listener of audio books because I don't have time to sit down and read and many many times the narrator enhances the story.

    "Top Of The List"

    I love the Mitford series by Jan Karon, it's a sweet Christian series that makes you feel good(Although the many characters are Christians, they are not portrayed as perfect--they have all of our common foibles which are funny and very recognizable). The narrator, John McDonough does an absolutely perfect job. I have enjoyed all of the books in the series. I have read about half of them and listened to half. This is one of those books that is preferred as an audible book. This is my first review and I couldn't reccommend a series more highly. I can't wait until Audible has them all! it's the kind of book (series) you can listen to and enjoy over and over.

    "Technical difficulties"

    Always fun visiting Father Tim and Mitford. This audiobook seemed to have some bad edits in the production or I had a bad download. There seemed to be abrupt endings to chapters or sections with immediate jumps into the next section. Confusing sometimes and I felt like I missed a tiny bit of the story. All that aside or shall I say "with everything, give thanks," it is still a great story and John McDonald, narrator, is perfect for the Mitford series.

    "Don't Leave Home Without it."

    Another of the great Jan Karon's At Home in Mitford series. Characters come to life in each book and you can not wait to hear what happens in the next installment. We travel with them in the car. We never get inpatient or annoyed over construction or other hold up on the road as we are happily enjoying life in Mitford. This is a series the whole family can enjoy and wrap their conversations around. No sex, violence or bad language. Warning for very small children is it about life and sometimes bad things happen to good people, but the author always teaches us a valuable lesson we can carry to our lives.

    "A Must read Series"

    I love all of Jan Karon's books in this series. I have read all of then at least 3 times and listened to them on audio once or twice. Heaven will be just like Mitford- with out the pain of course. Perfection

    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and this recording so very much. I just noticed a teensy, weensy mistake--the narrator calls a character by the wrong name at least twice. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't read the book so often. Otherwise, excellent as always!

    "Another great book"

    It's nice to listen to a book that doesn't have killing, sex, drugs, bad language. It seems as if most authors rely a on these things to make their books interesting. Thank you Mrs. Karon for proving this wrong, you have written wonderful books without stooping to the level of so many.
