Product description

Product Description

Burying Father Tim is a fictional story rooted in the power of the human spirit. Narrated by a doctor who returns to his old neighborhood for the first time in nearly forty years to attend the funeral of his boyhood parish priest, the story blends hilarious accounts of childhood escapades with the timelessly poignant theme of loss. Reminiscences resonate as the story unfolds, evoking laughter in one moment and tugging on heartstrings the next. Whether you attended Catholic school or merely know someone who did, there is a lot of all of us in the story of Father Tim.

Not book I expected. I was following Jan Karon The Mitford series and there was a Father Tim in that story and I thought it was a sequel to that series. My fault for not reading further.

I, like others, first looked at this book thinking it might be a Jan Karon sequel in the beloved Mitford series. Disappointed, I dediced nonetheless to try a "sample" on my Kindle. The sample completely caught me, and as Amazon cleverly deduced, people who BEGIN a book usually end up buying it, the second I came to the end of the sample, I hit "Buy This Book" button and paid a shocking $9.99 for the Kindle edition. (I generally try to spend less than $6.99, as I permit my adult children to buy books on my account too, which we all share.) The $9.99 was money well spent! Not only that, but I am online now to buy the book for my sister-in-law and her husband, my brother, because I believe they, too, will be enchanted by Father Tim and Michael. The book is laugh-out-loud funny and heart-breakingly sentimental, just the way most of our lives are. I truly believe part of the joy of this book is how it is unexpected both in what will happen next and how things will turn out. So I cannot in good conscience write more without it turning into a "spoiler". The few things I will say: it doesn't matter if you are male or female, young, middle-aged, senior or even a child of 12 + yrs, in what beliefs you practice, where you grew up or what your cultural background, you will LOVE THIS BOOK. Cannot recommend it higher! Burying Father Tim

5.0 out of 5 stars I shared the book with a friend I've had since back when we were both in a Catholic Elementary school and she loved, loved July 21 2016

Burying Father Tim took me from laughter to tears and back again over and over through the whole book. I won't give away the ending but it was unexpected and moving. I shared the book with a friend I've had since back when we were both in a Catholic Elementary school and she loved, loved, loved it, too! But even for anyone who didn't experience a parochial education, they should find this book funny and heartwarming.

I really enjoyed the book, the humour was priceless! I could picture a lot of it. I am not a catholic but I do have 3 sons and understand how a boys mind works!
The sad parts were heartbreaking, I wept. The love of the family was a very beautiful thing, very healing. Thank you for such a wonderful story.
Sue.

I really enjoyed "growing up" with Mike. His childhood reminded me of my own in many ways - simple and fun. The ending was kind of a bummer. Even though I know we hardly ever "walk off into the sunset" I still want to.
