Set in the charming village of Mitford, this book will delight listeners as it draws them into the life of Father Tim, an Episcopal rector who finds himself running on empty and longing for change. His bachelor existence is changed and enriched by a lovable cast of characters, including a stray dog, a lonely boy, and a comely neighbor.

This book describes a town that reminded me of a model railroad village. It's twee and charming and has everything the author wants to see. There's nothing wrong with that but it's very limited. The self-congratulatory Christianity grated. The setting reminded me of the darling Quebecois village Three Pines in Louise Penny's detective series. That one has too much violent death so the detective can have something to do. But Mitford (sort of a funny name if you know those sisters at all) has a lack of violent death and feels like a sixty year old's lily white nostalgic daydream. I was waiting for it and I did find what I consider some racist bits. But the greatest sins here are of omission.

All that said, I can see the appeal of setting up a sweet little village model, having Father Tim making the rounds praying and blessing, and celebrating nostalgia. For a while. ( )

"'I've never been one for physical exercise," she said, "but what God does with our faith must be something like workouts. He sees to it that our faith gets pulled, stretched, and pounded, taken to its limits so its limits can expand.'
He liked that--taken to its limits for its limits can expand. Yes!
"'If it doesn't get exercised,' she said thoughtfully, 'it becomes like a weak muscle that fails us when we need it.'"

I started this series long ago when it was one of the hottest series going. I remembered it fondly, but I wasn't sure it would live up to my memories. I was feeling a good amount of stress, so I hoped that it would bring some peace to my reading evenings.

I am glad to report that the town of Mitford had enough going on to keep my interest. According to many sources, Mitford is not Blowing Rock, North Carolina, but that town inspired the author. I have to admit that Mitford had that small-town charm, and the setting was certainly in the North Carolina mountains.

Yes, it depicted a simpler time and life, but the pleasure for me was watching Father Tim grow into a broader life. It wasn't always obvious how his faith was being grown or how his involvement with people was deepening, but the changes in his life were heartening. I know what it is to have a year in turmoil, even though the turmoil was because of all the good things happening to me.

Mitford remains a series I can turn to when I need a bit of calmness. It does have a heavy dose of Christianity, which is fine with me. It was never preachy or overbearing.

I would suggest it for people who enjoy Christian fiction or simple stories of ordinary people in an ordinary world. Don't look for huge amounts of angst or blinding flashes of light; this faith is shown in the actions of the people.

I already have the next book in my "to read" list for the coming year. ( )
