I'm only thirteen years late reviewing this one, but I'd never picked it up until my book club chose it for our December meeting. We've been reading a lot of heavy stuff lately, and no one wanted to drag corruption and war and other chaos into our Christmas season, so At Home in Mitford it was.I enj...

I'm not sure if I can finish this [I'm almost at the half-way point]. I read the first in the series, and it was cute enough. Well, clearly I'd forgotten a lot. It's actually rather saccharine and corny, but this is ever so much worse than the first one. It seems that Rev. Tim, a 60-year-old, life-l...

OMG, I think I'm going to suffer from a terminal case of heartwarming-ness. I may just melt into a puddle, beginning from the inside. This book is not literature. It doesn't really deal with real people. It's a peaches and cream fantasy world. But it's fun enough for comfort reading, providing one h...

2.5 stars #ComeRainorComeShine @PutnamBooks #JanKaron This was an okay book for me. It was a little too spiritual for me, but the story, I think, was good. My main complaint about the whole thing was the fact that the author would start a paragraph or a chapter and say he or she. There were about a...

The story centers around an Episcopalian rector, Father Timothy Kavanaugh, and his congregation in the tiny rural town of Mitford, North Caroli...

This book was recommended to me by a friend. While the book was well-written, interesting, and character-driven, I ended up skimming through it after the first 80 pages or so. It's basically a feel-good novel. There was much more Christianity in it than I would have preferred, as I am not Christian,...

A great book, with great characters, facing all of life's problems-not grand ones but seeing someone make it through the ones that loom large for everyon...

This series is balm to my soul :-) I don't like this one quite as much as the first book, mostly because cousin Meg and Edith Mallory both BUG me. I know they're supposed to, but seriously! Father Tim needs a spine transplant, because that wet noodle isn't doing him any good.But aside from that, it'...
