The stories are funny, some suspense, mystery and everything else a good book has. You can get lost in them and feel like you are right there in Mitford. And, for some reason, while reading these books, they give you a comforting and peaceful feeling...I just feel good when reading them and after reading them. These people are ones you want to know and hope really exist someplace, somewhere. I'd recommend them to anyone who loves reading about small town life, feeling you know the people you're reading about, and like the comfort you can get when reading a good book. I just LOVE the series.

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.

The streets are familiar to each and every one of us, even though the names are different.

This last installment has been every bit as enjoyable as the ones that came before it. Jan Karon has a gift for transporting us to this lovely area, the people, simplifying Christian beliefs, feelings of gratitude for what we have and who we have to love...I could go on & on. It just feels good! John McDonough is the absolutlely perfect narrator and makes Father Tim live in our hearts! I highly reccommend the entire series (I'm a fan of unabridged and they are not yet all available unabridged through Audible)and this final installment is fantastic! And definitely ties up loose ends and we can visualize Father Tim and Cynthia living on to do good works with their faithful friends and extended family for years to come. A happy ending to a happy and fun series!
