    "Refreshingly endearing"
    What did you love best about These High, Green Hills?

    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

    Story
    "The continuing saga of beloved Mitford."
    What made the experience of listening to These High, Green Hills the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What about John McDonough’s performance did you like?

    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.

    Story
    "Hello Old Friends!"
    What did you love best about These High, Green Hills?

    I especially love hearing Miss Sadie's stories.


    Which character – as performed by John McDonough – was your favorite?

    Father Tim


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and no. Hard to turn off, and yet I wanted it to last forever.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Karon writes an engaging story"
    What did you love best about These High, Green Hills?

    I love the characters, the real sense of living in small town America, and the wonderful reader.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way you come to care about the flawed people.


    Have you listened to any of John McDonough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Warmhearted story of small town life.

    "Forget what anyone else says about the reader"

    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!
