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

"A cozy and satisfying read." (Publishers Weekly)
I have listened to the series a few times and this book is the one that really stands out and stays in my heart. Laughing 1 minute and sobbing the next. So many lives are changed.
Lace and Poo Ball, Aunt Sadie, Dooley and Poo Ball's mother, Sissy and Sassy. Great people, a few who are from a living condition that is abhorrent and unimaginable. I "love" the love between the Father and Cynthia, so sweet. I also love that this series is Christian and has powerful morals.
I have a half hour commute to work each way. I love listening to audiobooks on the drive. It makes me look forward to the commute!
Although this is not the most exciting book in the world, I really enjoyed it. It made me laugh and cry. Most of the book is light humor, with a touch of poignancy. I listened to this on 35 minute commute every day and looked forward to it each time I got in my car. I'm going to download the next in the series.
I took a chance on the first of this series ("At Home in Mitford") and despite myself, brecame enthralled. When my local library no longer had the Audio CD's, I had to dip into my Audible.com credits to continue the journey. Well worth the investment. Jan Karon spins delightful characters who act with compassion to create a delightful tableau of small town life.
I loved that Christ love is weaved through the pages
I loved the stroy line of one preacher living his life to honor God in everyday situations
His narration was wonderful, easy to listen to and soothing
McDonough does justice to all the characters, but especially Father Tim. I find this books so uplifting, motivating to make a difference, funny, and endearing. I cooked several suppers while listening. Loved it
As with the first two books in this series, the town folk of Mitford continue to steal your heart. It is a beautiful model of faith being lived out in extraordinary ways by ordinary people, willing to open their hearts.
I am so glad they have continued to use John McDonough as the narrator. He is amazing and his voice and inflections add so much to the tale and to making the characters real.
I especially love hearing Miss Sadie's stories.
Yes, and no. Hard to turn off, and yet I wanted it to last forever.
If you've not read Jan Karon's Mitford stories, start at the beginning and be prepared to be swept away. On my most frazzled days, these stories can soothe my soul. These characters become friends almost instantly. Father Tim has had a profound impact on my life. If Mitford existed, with Father Tim still living in the rectory or the little yellow house next door, I’d be arranging for moving trucks right now!
I love the characters, the real sense of living in small town America, and the wonderful reader.
The way you come to care about the flawed people.
Yes, I have listened to other books he has read and love his characterization/voices that bring the story to life. This is very well done.
Warmhearted story of small town life.
I almost didn't start this series because of the negative comments about the reader. I'm so glad I tried it out. I really can't imagine what the complaint is. I read that he was "too slow" and I disagree entirely. The writing is clever and descriptive and the reading reflects that. Don't miss these books because of those comments!
