First, I'd like to say that I found no 'cafeteria Christianity' in this book. The story was enjoyable and had very meaningful substance, something I think we all need to read more of. This particular story shows that there is a purpose for everything, even though we don't always realize it right away! The book is eloquently written by a wonderful wordsmith. This writer highly recommends! At least to me, the essence that reverberated in my mind depicted a 'contending for the faith' in the sojourn of life. The undertone inherent within the pages carried much weight in my humble opinion. Anyone who is a genuine seeker of meaning in their life, this is your stop. If you are a joyless searcher for joy, then I invite you to read this novel and find some.

Jan Karon's books by her own words are 'bathed in prayer' because the main reason she writes is to show a life where God is included as a main character to every line. If you miss that point, you have missed the whole point as far as I am concerned. I find her books warm, caring and most of all true to the scriptures they try to employ in their plot. Re-read with that in mind, if you missed the point the first time

I received the first book in this series as a Birthday gift. I really enjoyed reading pleasantly surprised the characters are warm and extremely funny. Looking forward to Book 3. This is a Christian writer.

John McDonough is Father Tim. He has narrated all of the Mitford series books and is a treasure. As many know, quite often the scenes center on his fictional church or the choir. A veteran of the Glimmerglass Opera Company, he sings the hymns himself which is an extra treat for listeners. When one voice actor has read all of the titles in a series, that performer has created a strong connection to listeners. Thus, just as listening to another story of Mitford is enhanced by its familiarity so hearing John McDonough's narration stirs feelings of comfort and recognition. McDonough describes his first reading of a book as being ' like the first listening of a piece of music.' 'You have to be completely free,' he said. . 'As you read and think about the piece, you hear voices, and it starts to take on life.' How fortunate for all of us! In this, the second installment of the popular series, Father Tim has just returned from a vacation - his first in over a dozen years. While he enjoyed the respite he is a bit anxious to come home and see his neighbor, Cynthia Coppersmith, a woman with whom he thought he had an understanding. He's perplexed by what he perceives as her coolness and a bit agitated when a widow in his congregation sets her sights on him. The church has undertaken the building of a care center and an unexpected visitor arrives, evidently for an extended stay. Life goes on in Mitford as listeners renew acquaintances with some of the townspeople and once again are charmed by the fictional community. - Gail Cooke

For someone to say this book is boring because the lead characters are romantically interested and 'in their 80s, which is gross' - well that comment is gross because it's immature and silly. First of all, they're in their 60s - and life isn't over at 60. Yes, the whole book has a romantic tone to it, because the book and indeed the series, is about a simpler life, where smaller things are paid attention to and important. This book is a refreshing change; from someone like myself who loves thrillers, mysteries, sci fi, I also appreciate the slower pace and simplicity that this book offers, which does not equate with 'not interesting'. The characters are well portrayed and comforting. It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, certainly, but I think many people find that Karon's simpler Mitford has its nooks and crannies to explore, and amusing small-town drama that is just as important to these characters as ours is to us. Great book for those who like a gentler tone every now and then - or all the time!

I have read 5 out of 9 books in this series. When I finish the last book the first thing I will do is rush out and buy the entire series. Then I will never buy another book in my life (except for a few books on my NOOK) because there will be no room in my bookshelf.
