Father Tim Kavanagh once again returns to his home in Mitford after five hectic years of retirement in the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be back, he feels something is still missing from his life: a pulpit.
For years now, Father Tim believed he had some answers, but now he just has questions. How can he possibly help Dooley's younger brother, Sammy, make it through the fallout of a disastrous childhood? Could doing a good deed for the town bookstore be the best thing for his befuddled spirit? And who is riding through town in a limo? Not Edith Mallory.
Then, when an editorial appears in the weekly Muse it poses the question that sets the whole town out looking for answers: Does Mitford still take care of its own?
