Publisher's Summary

At last, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love's challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim's sofa-sized dog, Cynthia's urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who's become like a son to the rector.

Add a life-changing camping trip, the arrival of the town's first policewoman, and a new computer that requires the patience of a saint, and you know you're in for another engrossing visit to Mitford, the little town that readers everywhere call home.

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

    "LOVE the narrator!!!"

    This series delights me continually. It's like I know the characters. What a gifted writer Jan Karon is. I will move into the next one, but am so very disappointed John McDonough isn't narrating and that it's an abridged recording. If the narrator is available, I think having him narrate every story about Father Tim would delight listeners.

    "Editing issues"

    Story was moving and worth the editing problems helps restore faith in others and God. Narration was great

    Editing issues: Repeat of some parts. Ends some paragraphs abruptly and starts another paragraph.

    "Terrific, terrific, terrific"

    As always, fantastic. John McDonough does a bang up job with Jan Karon's fabulous characters. What's there not to like?

    "always my favorite!!"

    John McDonough is definitely the best narrator I've ever heard. He is especially grand in this particular series. I do not like the lady narrator in this series at all.

    "A Dose of Comfort"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This third installment of the Mitford series is as heartwarming and fun-filled as the first two.We see further developments in the character of Father Tim as he comes to terms with married life for the first time in 61 years, no easy task. Along the way, he offers comfort and compassion to those experiencing tragedy, sadness, and brokenness. There are many important life lessons to be learned from the sometimes wise and sometimes naive, Father Tim.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Father Tim - because he's so human I can almost see him!


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

    Hoppy Harper

    "Phenomenal!"

    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.

    "Easy listen, no drama"

    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.
