The “Mitford Series” begins with the title, “At Home In Mitford”. This delightful series joins Father Tim, the town's minister, enjoying a cup of coffee with friends at the Main Street Grill. This, it turns out, is an old-fashioned meeting place, second only to the townspeople's weekly church meeting.

Father Tim begins his adventure, when he feels something beating a frantic, friendly rhythm against his leg. He looks down, into the enormous brown, friendly eyes of a large, black, mud-caked dog. A little later, he realizes that this large, black, mud-caked dog responds beautifully to Scripture. Father Tim, in a frantic haste, yells out, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth,” he quoted in a loud voice from Ephesians, “but that which is good to the use of edifying. . . ” Suddenly, the dog sat down and looked at his prey with fond admiration.

Now, Father Tim began his rounds each weekday, at 6:45 am, at the hospital, praying and talking with his ill parishioners.

Once, in a great while, he would dream of sitting by the fire, in his fireplace, with a wife. But, since he was nearly 60 years of age, he would dismiss those thoughts. Of course, that is, until he met his first love. She was a lady, who, actually, lived next door to Father Tim.

This wonderful book is so relaxing and refreshing. These adjectives just begin to describe this series. It is so filled with life, everyday life, I was, frankly, delighted as the lives in this town began to "fill out". The people, and their personalities, their lives, deaths, and general wants & needs elevated this book, in my eyes, to an ongoing classic.

So, dear Reader, welcome to Mitford!

Once you start reading you won't want to put down.

"A joy" -   Great for the whole family!

Must to Read!
