I truly enjoyed this audiobook. The character is a widow who falls on hard times and thru the support of her family and neighbors, finds a solution to her hard times. There is a love story thrown in that is really sweet. I had a hard time cutting it off when I got to my destination.

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.

I absolutely love this entire series of books. I have read them all at least three times and now that I have them all on audiobook, I have listened to them twice. I got involved in every one's lives and truly liked almost every character in the book. After a couple of books, you know them all like you know your next door neightbor. I cried when characters died, and still laugh like crazy at Uncle Billy's jokes. The stories that take Father Tim and Cynthia to new places are great, because you get to meet new people and new experiences thru the Kavanaughs. I find it a great read and will continue to listen to the books. The narrator adds to the story and can bring a different take on each character, especially Dooley. I start every year so that I get to the Christmas series at Christmas Time. Can we talk Jan Karon on another one???
