At last, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love's challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim's sofa-sized dog, Cynthia's urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who's become like a son to the rector.

Add a life-changing camping trip, the arrival of the town's first policewoman, and a new computer that requires the patience of a saint, and you know you're in for another engrossing visit to Mitford, the little town that readers everywhere call home. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 1/29/2014

    " Even though I still find Cynthia annoying, maybe I can get used to her. Good character development, increasingly sad but realistic problems mixed with happy times (which is a lot like real life). Lots of good laughs, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Maisel | 1/25/2014

    " this entire series is a just a delight. It is a book for when you need to laugh and relax. The characters are all lovable and I just want to "be there". It has it sappy parts but they are forgivable. It is one of the few books I read and then again on CD while traveling. It is the best warm fuzzy of a book there is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dyan Effler | 1/24/2014

    " More of the same good comfort food for the eyes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 12/6/2013

    " I think the best aspect of these books is the depiction of Mitford. Karon really gives a feel of small town life. I was interested to see where the marriage led, but I stopped reading this series here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 12/1/2013

    " Lovely, engaging and inspirational. I forgive Cynthia for the irritation she caused me in *A Light in the Window* as she proves herself to be a highly suitable mate for Father Tim. I'm glad that I read the last several chapters while my son was napping, as I cried all the way through them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 6/25/2011
