Mitford is a place everyone can relate to, especially during the Christmas Season.

So many of the characters in this novel are the people we meet every day. Some of us even ARE the characters! It's one of those stories that helps you take stock of yourself at the same time you are enjoying good reading. This story of Mitford during the Christmas Se...
So many of the characters in this novel are the people we meet every day. Some of us even ARE the characters! It's one of those stories that helps you take stock of yourself at the same time you are enjoying good reading. This story of Mitford during the Christmas Season is very touching, while teaching us the real meaning of giving. I can't think of a better gift to give to a Jan Karon fan.

I ordered a book which combined The Mitford Snowmen, Esther's Gift, and Shepherds Abiding. What I got was a book with ONLY Sheperds Abiding. When I returned it to the store, the cashier checked the ISBN and discovered the same number was used for BOTH books, thereby making it impossible for me to order the volume I wanted.

Hopefully, they will get this problem fixed.

    book club and bedside reading

    Ms. Karon's writins are great for book clubs and bedside reading. They are a wonderful equalizer in this hectic world in which we live. This one is no exception. I used it for a pre-Christmas selection for our book club and was very satisfied.

    Gentle read but without must substance

    Compared to Jan's earlier work, this was a little disappointing. I missed the funny, quick witted characters of her past novels. Perhaps after so many books, it gets harder to come up with fresh, new ideas. A pity... I really enjoyed the others. I much prefer the Dorsetville series by Katherine Valentine.

    This book is delightful, but the publisher has attempted to make it appear to be worth $25!

    I have read all of Karon's books and truely enjoyed every one of them. This is a delightful Christmas story that is the length of a short story. This book has so few words on some pages that it is hard to turn the pages fast enough to keep up with the story! I wish it had been published as the thin paperback it should be!
