This is a wonderful addition to the Father Tim stories! We get to see the events that made Father Tim the man he is. We also have the opportunity to see that negative events in our lives can lead to good instead of being used as excuses for failure and lack of ambition.

I opened "Home to Holly Springs" with such anticipation! I finally had Jan Karon's new book, it was a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon, I was in heaven. As I read, turning each page eagerly, I kept saying to myself, "Something exciting will happen soon, the next chapter will be more exciting." I was expecting this book to be like the Mitford books, but those familiar characters were not appearing. The new characters were not as likeable, and I didn't care too much about them. I tried to like them, but I found them a bit tiring. Two major characters with the same name! Who was who? Jan Karon, why? I struggled with the book, determined to finish it. Finally, Cynthia showed up and things began moving along! I was not surprised with the final "secret"; nor was I surprised with Father Tim's decision. Of course, he would! I do look forward to more Father Tim books. I just hope they will be more fun to read!

I felt bereft when I finished the last novel in the Mitford series. So I was elated to discover that Jan Karon has continued Father Tim Kavanagh's adventures in a new series. If you read the Mitford novels, you know that Father Tim at times referred to an uneasy relationship with his own father. In this novel, Father Tim goes home to Holly Springs and confronts some demons from his past. This journey has mystery, humor, and characters that come to life on the page. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series...

I loved getting to know Tim and his background. It was a very enjoyable book and I look forward to the next installment.

This was just a wonderful book. Father Tim goes back to Holly Springs at age 70, and his boyhood suddenly comes alive in flashbacks to the deep south. A wonderful escape to another time and place, beautiful love story, wonderful surprise ending. Loved it, highly recommend.

I was very disappointed in this book after having loved all of her previous books. I could not wait to read the next. In this book, she seems to have changed. In previous books, she wrote more about her characters and their interaction. It almost seems as if someone told Ms. Karon to change her style and that she was becoming too formulaic. I think not but it seems she has gone out of her way to change . I couldn't follow the dialogue and couldn't figure out some of the insinuations. I must go back and read it again to figure out some of the characters. I do hope she gets back on track in the future.

Just finished reading" Home to Holly Springs"for the 3rd time! I Love it more and more! Miss Cynthia,but realize Father Tim needs to have this be his time.Having been born and raised in the south,I felt at home with the sights and smells so beautifully described.I read it again after finishing"In the Company of Others" for the 3rdtime as well! Can't wait for another "Father Tim"novel. Love them all!!!Thanks Jan Karon

I love the audio books of the Mitford series and couldn't wait to listen to the next round of Father Tim. But I was very disappointed that a new reader was doing the book. The series really needs the other guy to do this series (and any other books on disc that he can, he is WONDERFUL)

I have read all of the Mitford series and all the Christmas books; plus the cookbook. But, Home to Holly Springs takes us back to the beginning of Father Tim and his roots. In the process of this journey, the reader is also reminded of their own history. When Father Tim is reaquainted with an old flame and the memories involved with it, the reader has their own old memories. It is such a warm,fuzzy book. Thank you, Jan Karon.

Just like all of her other books, it was fantastic. I have loved all of the Mitford Series and I read her newest one the week it came out. I am on the last one now, In the Company of Others. Then I have read them all and have to wait for her to write another one. That's the tough part.

What a good book A truly good story and emotional read. I highly recommend all the books in this series. I feel so good after reading these stories containing Father Tim. Some even make you want to shed a tear or two but you always leave the stories feeling like part of them.

When the town of Mitford came into my life,I felt like all the characters where a part of my family.I started reading it around the 90's.I laughed till I cried, and cried till I laughted. I grieved for those I lost in Mitford and  those who found  love I cheered.After the first book ,I was hooked and wanted to meet the people who were fictitious.That was a town that I belonged in.I wanted to be with Father Tim in his church and rejoiced in his marriage along with Barnabas along with Dooley .Please bring Mitford back Please!!! I am 73 and i lived on those in Mitford.I told my husband before He passed that if Mitford were real I would have moved there after the 1st book . Please bring Mitfrod back Jan the world needs it and so do i. God Bless you and all the ones you were blessed with to help write the series about my dream town .I'll be looking for it in the best book shops

This book contained too much content about Tim's bitterness and hurt toward his long deceased father. I thought that had already been dealt with in a previous book of the Mitford Series. This story contained more scandal than was usual for the Father Tim series and lacked some of the warm-heartedness. The ending was satisfactory.
