For years, Mitford's sixtysomething rector has been happily married to his parish. Now he's also married to Cynthia, his vivacious next-door neighbor. For Father Tim, life in Mitford has never been so full of surprises. His wife is aging his already ancient kitchen walls, not to mention burning his draperies. The mountain boy he's learned to love as his own makes a heartrending decision. And the agony of mastering the church computer system is as boggling as the pandemonium that breaks loose when his quiet rectory becomes a nursery. All this, however, is small potatoes compared to what happens on a wilderness camping trip that sends him home a changed man. In These High, Green Hills, Jan Karon takes you on a heartwarming and hilarious visit to Mitford, where her lovable characters always inspire laughter, tears, and fresh hope.

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

    " I really enjoyed this one. It is about the evolving romance of Father Tim & Cynthia, the children's authorette. You know how I like romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnea | 2/3/2014

    " Another great book in the Mitford series - now on to #4! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 2/3/2014

    " Kinda fun to read the continuing story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/31/2014

    " These are sweet books. I wish I responded in faith as well as these characters. Of course, maybe if I were a fictional character, I would. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gretchen | 1/28/2014

    " The best part about the Mitford series so far, is the characterization. In the typical way of small towns, some people stick out and grab attention, and some pass by on the street for months before you notice them. There are some major transitions for Mitford people within the story, some losses and several personal challenges for Father Tim. But one of the key constants is Father Tim's faith,and his ablity to show how it's an active faith, not merely something that happens on Sundays. A great series for reconnecting with your personal values, and a reminder to appreciate those around you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/25/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, the third in the Mitford series by Jan Karon, very much. Just as much as the first book, and more than the second. One thing about the Mitford books that is truly a delight is that, just about whenever I pick it up, I can count on a good laugh. However, in this series, I have found that God's name is used a little more than what I would consider appropriate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Parsley | 1/21/2014

    " Great book! Makes you wish you lived in this kind of community. I guess that's what makes it fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 1/19/2014

    " the third in the series. It has been a delightful journey with these characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dyan Effler | 1/13/2014

    " Reading this now, it's great. Best to read them in order, if you need that, let me know!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 1/2/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal Cochran | 12/27/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this book as well as the first two in the series, but it was still an enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 12/27/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 7/7/2013

    " Part of the Mitford Series. This one reminds us that learning to wait is something that we all need and that we should appreciate the blessings that are in our everyday life. "There are two things to aim at in life: First, to get what you want and, after that enjoy it." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Atlantis | 5/3/2013

    " This was another sweet and compelling story with Father Tim. Jan Karon has a very distinctive style that brings her characters to life. You are compelled with the desire to travel to Mitford just so that you can meet and experience all the things in the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn Branch | 12/26/2012

    " I recommend all the books in the Mitford/Father Tim series by Jan Karon. All are compelling reads that you cannot put down. They are touching. They have sad parts. They are funny. They are uplifting. I feel like Father Tim is a trusted friend now. Read them in order if you can. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 9/16/2011

    " The Mitford Series is one of my favorites! The characters in the stories are just like us only, perhaps more kind and generous. You wont be able to get enough of them. Read all the books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 6/27/2011

    " I have spent the last week reading and enjoying these books. It was like a little vacation. My one complaint is that all the food described in them threatened to send me into a diabetic coma along with the good Father. :)Mitford doesn't really exist, but wouldn't it be lovely if it did? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 4/25/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 9/27/2010

    " Another cool, refreshing drink of water from Jan Karon. Not quite as emotionally engaging as the second book, but still delightful. The Mitford books read like a third-person journal. "

    " This was another great book in the Mitford Series. I love the easy reading, positiveness and down to earthness of these books. "
