Synopsis

Join Father Tim on a profoundly personal journey back to his childhood home.
 
Thirty-eight years have passed since Father Tim Kavanagh left his Mississippi hometown, determined not to return. Then he receives a handwritten note postmarked Holly Springs. Cryptic and unsigned, it says only Come home. These two words compel him to make the most challenging journey of his life.

Traveling to his boyhood home doesn’t merely take Father Tim across hundreds of miles. Thanks to a thousand sights and smells, he also travels back through memories—some fond and some he’s tried for nearly forty years to forget, from his quick-to-anger father and his lovingly tender mother to the picturesque small town he’d tried desperately to leave behind. And once Father Tim discovers who was behind the mysterious note, a truth is revealed that will change his life—forever.

This book moves as slow as an August breeze in Holly Springs, but was just as welcome. I found the characters endearing, and I couldn't wait to find out what happened to each of them. It was surely worth my time.

AudiobooksNow review by Betty on 2008-08-29 12:23:10

It just didn't seem as good to me hearing a different voice read this book. After listening to the entire Mitford series read by the same person, that voice was Father Tim. I would have enjoyed it much more if it had been the same voice as I had listened to thru the years of my Mitford family growing up.
