His attractive neighbor is tugging at his heartstrings. A wealthy widow is pursuing him with hot casseroles. And his red-haired Cousin Meg has moved into the rectory, uninvited. As you can see, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, is in need of divine intervention.

Father Tim tries to revive a church that closed 400 years ago.

The back cover of this book said it well: "Jan Karon writes ' to give readers an extended family and to applaud the extraordinary beauty of ordinary lives.'" I couldn't agree more. In this 9th book of the series you will find Father Tim and his wife Cynthia house sitting at Meadowgate Farm, while Father Tim takes on the challenge of getting a mountain church that has been closed for 40 years, up and running again. The people he meets and the help that he receives is endearing to the reader.

He will also be sent on a hunt for some long hidden cash hidden inside of Miss Sadie's old car (you have to read this series in order to really know Miss Sadie). Dooley will also discover the gift Sadie left him in this book. All around good story that truly shows the beauty of ordinary folks, in Mitford and on the mountain. ( )

Father Tim Kavanaugh's characters and themes of love & service come together in this delightful conclusion of the Mitford series.
  Indiancreek | Dec 13, 2017 |
As the last installment in Karon’s Mitford series – readers can continue to follow Father Timothy in Karon’s Father Tim series – this one seemed to come across a bit flat. Mitford and its wonderful town folk take a back seat as Father Tim and Cynthia have moved out to Meadowgate Farm for a year and Father Tim comes out of retirement to revive an old unused missionary church, Holy Trinity. Yes, there is a new cast of vivid characters to meet and fall in love with, but I found the story seemed to peter out instead providing a more satisfying plot resolution, almost as though Karon was rushing to meet a publishing deadline and didn’t have the time to wrap the story up properly.

I will miss my visits to Mitford but at least I can look forward to more stories with Father Timothy. ( )
