His attractive neighbor is tugging at his heartstrings. A wealthy widow is pursuing him with hot casseroles. And his red-haired Cousin Meg has moved into the rectory, uninvited. As you can see, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, is in need of divine intervention. In this beautifully crafted second novel in the Mitford series, Jan Karon delivers a love story that's both heartwarming and hilarious.

And the affirmation of what some of us already know: Life in a small town is rarely quiet. And absolutely never boring.

Father Tim needs a spine transplant, because that wet noodle isn't doing him any good.But aside from that, it'...
