It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. 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. Download and start listening now!

    " 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.
    "
