Penguin Putnam Inc. At Home in Mitford: The Mitford Series

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 sho 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 sixty years old. Suddenly, father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich, provincial comedy in which mysteries and miracles abound.

Every now and then one comes across a story that is so good in the telling, you almost feel like you can see every scene, feel the emotions, hear the sounds and even your tongue salivates at the foods mentioned. The lives of Father Tim, Cynthia, Dooley and the rest is a wonderful read. Every book. So if you are looking to get away from the stress of life for a while ride along with Jan Karon's wonderful story of a small town and it's cast of characters.

The simple life, oh how we all long for it, in Mitford you will find it. Jan Karon writes with a style similiar to James Herriot in his "All Creatures Great and Small" series. Jan also weaves her Christian faith throughtout the book in a way which is relevant to her reader. Put the kettle on, make some tea, sit down in a cozy chair and become acquainted with the people who live in Mitford.You'll be glad you did.

I am nearly finished with the Mitford Series, and I will cry when it is finished. They are the very best books I have ever enjoyed. I will do the Father Tim series, which I have previewed. The characters in these books have become like family and best friends. I have giggled out loud, laughed and even cried with the people. I will have to re-read them soon, as they add so much pleasure and spiritual blessings to my life! I wish Jan Karon could continue them on and on!! My sincere thanks to her!!

I ordered for my 90-year-old mother-in-law because I knew she would appreciate the values expressed and the humor. Finding good reading for an older person can be very, very difficult. I count the Mitford series as a real winner.
