After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself. Then he's given one. As for what it proves, heaven only knows. It's life as usual in Mitford. A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died? And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who is still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to Muse editor J.C. Hogan's desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will it be high-def TV or his pork chop marinade? Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice. But there is still a lot to celebrate, as their adopted son, Jack, looks forward to the most important day of his life -- with great cooking, country music, and lots of people who love him. Happily, it will also be a day when the terrible wound in Dooley's biological family begins to heal because of a game -- let's just call it a miracle -- that breaks all the rules.

I love this series! It absolutely must be read in order, so be sure to start with At Home in Mitford.

You have heard of dystopian novels--they are everywhere. The Mitford books are the opposite--they are utopian novels. Some people might find them too sweet, or not believable because so many good things happen. Personally, I am thrilled to read books where people are kind and generous to each other and support each other. These books are an antidote to today's real world.

When asked for her advice about life, Miss Louella says, "Love whoever God sets down in front of you. Even the mean ones, 'cause they can sho use it."

Can you imagine how much better the world would be if we all followed Miss Louella's advice?

5+ stars for this ongoing series. As a longtime fan, I so delight in reading each edition. Karon does such an excellent job with character development. We see the years pass in Mitford and get to know more of the residents in each volume. They have real struggles and triumphs and we are there with them. Karon's writing style makes us feel like family. She can use a few words to reference a thought or routine in the lives of one of the characters and we know exactly what she is referring to. It is like being in on the inside joke in the best, most inclusive kind of way. In this volume we see alternating chapter POVs for Mitford and Meadowgate. Another example of how the folks in and around Mitford continue to grow and change and we have a front row seat. Highly recommended!!
