Mitford's village rector, Father Tim, is running scared. He can no longer deny (even to himself), that he's in love with his neighbor, Cynthia Coppersmith. Cynthia, after all, sees in him a man of warmth and daring, if only he'll meet her halfway. But now a wealthy widow is pursuing Father Tim with hot casseroles. And the mysterious Cousin Meg has moved into the rectory bag and baggage, not to mention uninvited. Abounding with characters both old and new, A Light in the Window will compel you to laugh out loud. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Its been a long time since I read the first book in the Mitford Series, so I can't really compare this second one to the first. All I have to say is that I LOVE MITFORD :) and I can't wait to start the 3rd book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carre | 2/7/2014

    " Probably the most slowly-paced of the Mitford books. The letters exchanged between Father Tim and Cynthia get a little tedious, but otherwise it's pure balm for the soul, as life in Mitford always is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/30/2014

    " LOVE this series...really interesting characters! What a way to relieve stress at the end of the day! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacquie | 1/26/2014

    " Very entertaining and heart-warming. Fun to see the characters change and grow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 June | 1/15/2014

    " I love the Mitford series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pequete | 1/10/2014

    " I loved this book, almost as much as I liked the first volume (At Home in Mitford). Slightly less, just because the novelty wasn't there anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 1/7/2014

    " Though I got frustrated with Father Tim because he was such a stick in the mud, the last two pages were worth it for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/4/2014

    " I enjoyed these books at the beginning of the series, because I thought they were a reasonable portrayal of religious people. I lost track of the story about the time the minister got married - not even sure if I read about the wedding. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Sheehy | 1/2/2014

    " Like "Life in Mitford" this book has loveable characters and the easy meter if small town life. The characters could have been developed more fully, but maybe thats what the rest of the books are for? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sgwilkens | 12/26/2013

    " I love every single one of these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 12/14/2013

    " The second Mitford book is even better than the first as you become friends with the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/10/2013

    " Book 2, Good, A winter book, lots of letters written back and forth "

    " Not very exciting, but light-hearted and wholesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 11/21/2013

    " I'm liking this series, I like the characters. I liked the first one better--this one kind of slow and predictable. Don't know if I'll read #3 or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Morris | 11/20/2013

    " Best described as "Gentle Fiction." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet M. | 10/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 8/20/2013

    " part of an awesome series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 4/19/2013

    " I think I liked the first book better, but there was a lot to hold my interest in this sequel book. Mystery, romance, humor. This book has it all. And the ending ... all I can say is "it's about time." Now, on to book 3! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 2/11/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angeline | 5/28/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 5/19/2012

    " The Rector that age has nothing to do with the need for companionship and love. A sweet discovery in the "light in the window". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dayna | 5/10/2012

    " This was a LONG book on CD (14 discs)! This series was recommended to me and I read reviews that the first book was a little slow to get through, but after that they picked up. I disagree. I don't think I'll continue unless I don't have anything else. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Summer | 4/7/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 10/9/2011

    " The second book was definitely better than the first, still a little good to be true but I knew all the characters this time, so it was a better moving plot without the details of introductions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/21/2011

    " Loved the entire series! I felt like I was really "at home" with the Mitford community. "

    " Such memorable characters! A treat is in store for future readers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann aka Iftcan | 4/21/2011

    " Ok, I'm not exactly sure how to classify this book (or this series as a whole.) Its part humour, part "feel good" part essay. But it was an enjoyable read and you did get involved in the lives of the various occupants of the town of Mitford.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 4/19/2011

    " This is my second time through this series. The first time I was charmed by the characters and I still am. Its not great literature but you really can get involved with the plot. At the end of each book I find myself wishing that I could spend some time in Mitford. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brit | 4/18/2011

    " i couldnt get into this book...just didnt feel like it was going anyplace to me, and to be honest, i found the characters alittle boring..nothing in this book made me want to keep reading... "
