This is my first foray into Christian fiction (never believed in them previously) about a home place, an older-aged reverend (Episcopalian, Father Tim) and his church and potential first time marriage/husband). The many funny characters and situations that inhabit this place and the running (and many responsibilities) of a church, the congregation and all that surrounds its goings on (and outside of it) in every season and all the details, called Mitford, and there are plenty of them. Then enters a lioness after her man (Father Tim) and the almost reality of what some not-so-divine women will do to catch there prey! And then there is the sudden dog (who gets bigger), a sudden adoption, and rescues and a household of serious and hilarious life situations. In all, through all, for each, as One. A truly feel good, wish you could live there (almost feels real) book. Can't wait to read the next one! Join the crowd!
I so enjoy this series. This is my fifth book from - I have nine. I am sharing with others as it is so good to read something that is uplifting, warmhearted, funny and reminds me that there are many good people in this world.
I started this thinking I would just read the first one "Home In Mitford" now I can't put them down, I really enjoy the stories of all the people. I would and have recommended these books. Please give yourself a wonderful treat and enjoy the Mitford series.
Father Tim and the other members of the Mitford series are like comfortable friends. The situations they face are real, yet, not overwhelming. There is more living to be done by the inhabitants of Mitford. I look forward to the opportunity of reading what Jan comes up with next.
