At Home in Mitford
The first novel in Jan Karon's bestselling and beloved Mitford series
It's easy to feel at home in Mitford, North Carolina. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are friendly. Yet, Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who 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 comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.

The Simple LifeUser Review - Christianbook.com
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!!
