Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Karon's bestselling series of Mitford novels has concluded with 25 million copies sold to date, but to the relief of eager fans, she introduces a new series featuring Father Tim. The beloved Episcopal priest returns to his childhood town of Holly Springs, Miss., where he reconnects with old friends and battles some old demons. The novel is thick with Father Tim's past, as Karon uses flashbacks to shed light on his early adulthood, especially his transition to seminary. In Holly Springs, his penchant for getting near strangers to open up to him—and his earnest, moving reflections on faith, prayer and the risks of love—are reassuringly present. His wife, Cynthia, is on stage far less than he, but when she appears, she is charming and insightful, as usual. Yet the book is far from perfect. Development of the quirky locals in Holly Springs is thin, and the end is a tad abrupt. Most frustratingly, the central drama of the novel falls flat: Father Tim discovers a long-buried family secret, but he doesn't grapple deeply enough with the emotional consequences of his discovery, nor does Karon fully explore the ways in which the secret plunges us into the Southern quagmire of race. Still, Mitford fans will enjoy this newest visit with wise, winsome, lovable Father Tim. (Oct. 30)

If you read the Jan Karon books, start from the first in the Mitford series and work your way up to this one. You are cheating yourself of great stories that get referenced in this book if you jump into the world of Father Tim here. Easy read, nice to see less references to scripture than in most of the books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jan Karon's Father Tim Series - Book 1 Dec 27 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a joy is was to read this book, especially since I am also interested in my Irish roots as is Father Tim. The unusual twist in the plot makes Father Tim and his life believable. This Book 1 has made it hard for me to wait for Jan Karon to write Book 2. I have given this book as a gift this year and bought my own copy to own, having read it first from the public library.
