It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. 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.

Visiting Mitford is like visiting a group of old friends whom you haven't seen in years, but whom you know w...
gah. what on earth possessed me to try and read this?? I do like "slice-of-life" books - I enjoy Miss Read's tales of the village of Fairacre, and I do like gentle stories that have interesting characters and are set in tiny villages or hamlets. But this.....I could feel my teeth aching from the ove...
