After more than thirty-eight years, Father Tim Kavanagh returns to his childhood home of Holly Springs, Mississippi, on a profoundly personal journey.

Whatever became of Tommy Noles, his forbidden childhood friend, and Peggy, the loving woman who was like his second mother? What were the facts behind the court trial that drove the Kavanagh family even further apart?

He figures Thomas Wolfe was right: You can’t go home again. Then he discovers the truth: A surprising number of connections have miraculously survived time and neglect.

In this first of the Father Tim novels, Jan Karon takes her celebrated Mitford character to territory he has long avoided, the uncharted territory of family, giving us a spellbinding and poignant narrative laced with the wisdom and forgiveness only a trip back home can inspire.

    " Fun, sweet book! Easy to read through, yet quite engaging. Definitely a series that a fan of the original Jan Karon-Mitford Series will want to read. This second series based on Father Time (the main character in the Mitford Series) is a bit of a stretch, lacking in original and endearing characters. I never fully appreciated the newer characters as much and was very happy when, at the end, a couple original characters made a brief appearance. This book is necessary, despite it's shortcomings. Reading it helps to answer questions which often came up in the previous books about Father Tim's past. "

    " This was a nice book. Almost kindof depressing. There seemed to be quite a bit of saying goodbye and letting go. I still absolutely love the characters and the stories. Especially a part about something that happened in the Vietnam war. I researched a little more and found out that part is true. That was very interesting. A good book, but a bit depressing. "

    " I liked all the Mitford books. This is a little more intense and serious. I learned a lot and thought is well-written and a good read. Good story. "
