    "Love this series but ...."

    I absolutely love this series, but this book not being narrated by John McDonough and I really don't like it being abridged .... was hard for me to get through. Looking forward to the next book.

    "Missing John McDonough"
    Any additional comments?

    I love these stories so much, but I was so sad that John McDonough didn't narrate this one. I actually couldn't listen to more than 2 chapters because the different voice changed my vision of the place and characters I love so much.

    "The Mitford Series are always a good read!"

    I love these books! Jan Karon writes with such love and humor. All her books encourage and build up your faith. The Mitford Series are all good and should be read in order.

    "Boring!!"

    I couldn't get into this book! I tried, however, as I took it along on a long drive and had nothing else to listen to. Nothing memorable about it.
