  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lee | 2/1/2014

    " I read a few chapters, but never could get into this book. It went on and on about their preparation to leave Mitford and didn't resolve early on the kids that they helped out. The backwoods language of some of the characters made it difficult to get through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/31/2014

    " enjoyed the 5th just as much as the 1st... these stories are like a warm blanket by a cozy fire on a cold day - they just wrap me up in comfort! I especially love Father Tim's faith; his prayer life and study are a wonderful example for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna | 1/30/2014

    " My least favorite of the Mitford series. What I love about the series is the familiarity of the characters, so going off and introducing all new ones made this book less enjoyable for me. "
