Synopsis

The first novel in Jan Karon’s bestselling and beloved Mitford series--now available in a new 20th Anniversary Edition, including an introductory letter by the author

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.

If you are looking for a book with no violence, no foul language, and no sex then this is the ticket. Small town life is pleasantly entertaining and this book exemplifies that fact. This would be a great audio book to play while driving on a long family trip.
