Publisher's Summary

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.

Don't miss out on the rest of Father Tim's adventures in Mitford.

Another pleasant read

Any additional comments?

I am enjoying the community of Mitford and its quirky characters very much. The series continues to be a positive, low stress listen.

I can't say enough about these Father Tim books. I live such a hectic stressed out life that I cherish the time I spend in Mitford. I never get tired of listening to these books.

A Must Read Series

I love all of Jan Karon's books in this series. I have read all of then at least 3 times and listened to them on audio once or twice. Heaven will be just like Mitford- with out the pain of course. Perfection

Audio editing not great

I love John McDonoghs narration and, of course, the story. But the editing is very choppy with sentences cut short between sections and chapters, no space between some sections and longer silences between others

these High Green Hills

These High Green Hills
The consolation of Tim and Cynthias new marriage, and the terror of being lost in the cave brings new dimension to their relationship. While the introduction of Lace Turners character further exposes us to the evils of child abuse, and still the discovery of Dooleys mother, Pauline Barlow, introduces hope of restoration and forgiveness.. Dear Sadie Baxters demise is countered by the ongoing encouragement of Hope House and the blessings it will bring to many in the future of Mitford, especially as we meet it's. new Chaplain .
