Review: A Light in the Window (Mitford Years #2)

User Review  - Kate - Goodreads

It's so easy to get lost in a 'Mitford' book. Jan Karon's descriptions, not only of the town, but of its inhabitants are so vivid that it makes me feel like I'm living right there. The references to living a Christian life are beautiful and appropriate. I'm looking forward to what comes next! Read full review
