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.

    Story
    "This is a sweet feel good book."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. Calm and a sweet take on married life after 60...


    Would you listen to another book narrated by John McDonough?

    Yes. He's got a calmness about him that I used to enjoy in the Cat Who book with George Guidall narrating. So relaxing.


    Was These High, Green Hills worth the listening time?

    Yes. I listened each night before sleep and found it very calming


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to the next episode of life 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.
