Description

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.

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
