Overview

At Home in Mitford (Mitford Series #1) by Jan Karon

The first novel in Jan Karon’s bestselling and beloved Mitford series

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

I love all the Mitford stories and characters. You'll laugh and cry and wish you lived inthis Mayberryesque burg.

If you love feel good books, this is a must. I am now reading the second book and can't wait to get started on the 3rd. I love Father Tim, watching the human side of the clergy is something we seem to forget they are, Human.

Review title: Marvelous Mitford. Our protagonist, Father Tim, is rather charming, delight-filled, and down-to-earth. You'll probably "fall in love" with Barnabas, what a true friend. This small town parish story is sure to amuse and entertain you if you enjoy novels about the Christian faith and how the love of God is revealed in the lives of God's people. You will feel "at home in Mitford" as you read about this congregation and this wonderfully "spun" tale.

Simple lives, simple people living in simple town. A quirky entertaining read. Don't know if I,ll read the other books in this series.

I only read three quarters the first book in this series. It was good reading, but just a little slow to the point that I did not finish it. I doubt that I will be reading the compete series.

This book is so unorganized! It jumps from thought to thought, to the point that I feel like I have skipped a page. The story might have been cute if it didn't feel totally out of place in it's setting (think Irish Country Village set in small town America) I think I'll skip the rest of this series.

This a quaint walk through the life of an Episcopalian priest and the people of his parish. I am actually surprised at how much I am enjoying this book as it does not fit my normal choice of reading material, but I am very glad that I took the recommendation and picked it up.

I often heard my sister talk about Father Tim, so I asked her if I could borrow them, not thinking that I would like them. But after the first few pages I was hooked and read the entire Mitford Series and Father Tim Books. I absolutely love them, and will read them again. I read them so fast, as I could not put them down. I looked forward to going to bed at night just so I could read. Jan Karon is an excellent writer, not just a story teller, she transports you with her descriptions and gets you into each characters life. I miss them, I love the inspirational quotes Father Tim uses. I have been looking for another series like this but have not come up with any. Read them you will not be disappointed!!!

I bought this for a 91 year old aunt who is still a voracious reader. I read the entire Mitford series years ago and loved every one of Karon's books. They have humor, a little intrigue and a lot of love and hominess. They feature "any town" complete with a varied cast of characters.

As a chaplain I found this entire series mandatory reading. It has helped me deal with the real plusses and pits I have experienced thru others. It is superbly written. I have read all of these books - thus far - three times. It has become my ritual every two to three years. In my work it is like counseling on paper with tears and laughter thrown in. Pax et bonum!

Who wouldn't want to live in Mitford? The town is beautiful and the citizens are kind and generous, especially those in Father Tim's church. There's not a problem that isn't easily solved. This book is sweet and leaves you with a good feeling. Mitford is that somewhere in the world where you can go to bed at night with a smile on your face and in your heart.
