Description

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 quote

Praise for the Mitford Novels "Karon knits Mitford's small-town characters and multiple story lines into a cozy sweater of a book."--USA Today "Jan Karon reflects contemporary culture more fully than almost any other living novelist."--Los Angeles Times "Welcome home, Mitford fans...to Karon's gift for illuminating the struggles that creep into everyday lives--along with a vividly imagined world."--People "Karon offers her readers another chance to escape their own world, if just for a while, and live in the town that 'takes care of its own.' Her readers say they wish Mitford existed so they could move there."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
