9780399183560: At Home in Mitford (Mitford Years)

A special edition of Jan Karon’s first Mitford novel, complete with a new color map of America’s favorite small town and the original chapter illustrations.

Enter the world of Mitford and you won't want to leave. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector who yearns for something more, suddenly finds he has more than he can handle. His life is turned upside down with the appearance of a very large dog, a charming and attractive new neighbor, and a lovable but unloved boy named Dooley. Seemingly overnight, Father Tim's quiet life isn't so quiet. Heartfelt and moving, this is the book where it all began.

Review:

Father Tim, a cherished small-town rector, is the steadfast soldier in this beloved slice of life story set in an American village where the grass is still green, the pickets are still white, and the air still smells sweet. The rector's forthright secretary, Emma Garret, worries about her employer, as she sees past his Christian cheerfulness into his aching loneliness. Slowly but surely, the empty places in Father Tim's heart do get filled. First with a gangly stray dog, later with a seemingly stray boy, and finally with the realization that he is stumbling into love with his independent and Christian-wise next-door neighbor. Much more than a gentle love story, this is a homespun tale about a town of endearing characters-- including a mysterious jewel thief--who are as quirky and popular as those of Mayberry, R.F.D. --Gail Hudson
