Product Description

After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanaugh returns with his wife, Cynthia from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors.

While he is glad to be a t home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he lost his passion.

His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion--for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner--and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley's brother Sammy, still enraged by his mother's abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim's prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings Bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.

Publisher's Description

A publishing event: #1 New York Times–bestselling author Jan Karon returns—and invites her millions of fans to join her again in Mitford.
 
After five hectic years of retirement from Lord’s Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors.
            While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he’s offered one, he decides he doesn’t want it. Maybe he’s lost his passion.
            His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion—for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley’s brother, Sammy, still enraged by his mother’s abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim’s prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.
            All this as Wanda’s Feel Good Café opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own?
            Millions of fans will applaud the chance to spend time, once more, in the often comic and utterly human presence of Jan Karon’s characters. Indeed, they have never been more sympathetic, bighearted, and engaging.

    This review was written for SOMEWHERE SAFE - #10 TP.
    I liked the book and loved the series. It had been so long since I read the Mitford series that I had to concentrate on getting back into it. It was an o.k. read. I was glad she continued the series but it has been my least favorite of the books.

    Don't get me wrong, It's an OK read. I'm a huge fan of Jan Karon. I even grew up in the Blowing Rock area of which these books are centered. I also dream of being there while reading BUT..... I just kept reading this one thinking, surely it will get better. It never did. I was disappointed.

    Have read all of the Mitford series and have enjoyed them all and this one is no exception. Feel as if I'm home again in Mitford and catching up with old friends. Good relaxing read.

    Felt like I would have missed something if I hadn't finished the series but it didn't keep my interest as much as previous books did. Did tie up a lot of loose ends but left me wondering about the brother.
