"After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself. Then he's given one--but what, exactly, does it prove? Meanwhile, newly married Dooley and Lace face a crisis that empties their bank account and turns their household upside down. Is the honeymoon over? Is this where real life begins? As the Mitford Muse editor stumbles on a quick fix for marital woes and the town grocer falls in love for the first time, Father Tim and Cynthia receive an invitation to yet another family wedding. But perhaps the bottom line is this: While a star blinks out in the Mitford firmament, another soon blinks on at Meadowgate, and four-year-old Jack Tyler looks forward to the biggest day of his life--for now and forever. Jan Karon weaves together the everyday lives of two families, and the cast of characters that readers around the world now love like kin"-- Publisher.

I love this series! It absolutely must be read in order, so be sure to start with At Home in Mitford.

You have heard of dystopian novels--they are everywhere. The Mitford books are the opposite--they are utopian novels. Some people might find them too sweet, or not believable because so many good things happen. Personally, I am thrilled to read books where people are kind and generous to each other and support each other. These books are an antidote to today's real world.

When asked for her advice about life, Miss Louella says, "Love whoever God sets down in front of you. Even the mean ones, 'cause they can sho use it."

Can you imagine how much better the world would be if we all followed Miss Louella's advice?

5+ stars for this ongoing series. As a longtime fan, I so delight in reading each edition. Karon does such an excellent job with character development. We see the years pass in Mitford and get to know more of the residents in each volume. They have real struggles and triumphs and we are there with them. Karon's writing style makes us feel like family. She can use a few words to reference a thought or routine in the lives of one of the characters and we know exactly what she is referring to. It is like being in on the inside joke in the best, most inclusive kind of way. In this volume we see alternating chapter POVs for Mitford and Meadowgate. Another example of how the folks in and around Mitford continue to grow and change and we have a front row seat. Highly recommended!!
