At Home in Mitford is celebrating it’s 20th year in print!!!
It’s easy to feel at home in Mitford, North Carolina. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are friendly. 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.
I have to admit that I had never heard of this series before so I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting myself into, but after reading the first book I can say that I totally understand why there are so many fans.
It took me a while to get into the story, but by the third chapter I was hooked!
Jan Karon has a way of creating a complete community that you truly do feel like you are part of the story.
This explains why she has so many die hard fans of her stories.
