At Home in Mitford

Thinking of great books brings to mind the wonderful Mitford Series books by Jan Karon.  I have read each several times since they were introduced in 1994. The series starts with the first book 'At Home in Mitford'.  I love the characters, their stories, the pace of life in Mitford and the possibility of what could be. There are nine all together, each one just as enjoyable as the last. I highly recommend this series!

AMAZON REVIEW : Father Tim, a cherished small-town rector, is the steadfast soldier in this beloved slice of life story set in an American village where the grass is still green, the pickets are still white, and the air still smells sweet. The rector's forthright secretary, Emma Garret, worries about her employer, as she sees past his Christian cheerfulness into his aching loneliness. Slowly but surely, the empty places in Father Tim's heart do get filled. First with a gangly stray dog, later with a seemingly stray boy, and finally with the realization that he is stumbling into love with his independent and Christian-wise next-door neighbor. Much more than a gentle love story, this is a homespun tale about a town of endearing characters-- including a mysterious jewel thief--who are as quirky and popular as those of Mayberry, R.F.D. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I have two more books on my Christmas wishlist this year and anticipate that both will be delightful.
