It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old.

A Heart Warming Story

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-10-07

I highly recommend reading/listening to "At Hom in Mitford" by Jan Karon.... It is a heart warming story that makes you feel right at home with all the charaters and they will remind you of people you know in your own towns... Once you get started with Mitford you will have to read/listen to the whole series about Father Tim, the amazing dog, his boy, his neighbor, etc... Enjoy the amazing town and world of Mitford...
