by Jan Karon
Book 2 in the Mitford series (1995)
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. In this beautifully crafted second novel in the Mitford series, Jan Karon delivers a love story that’s both heartwarming and hilarious.
Only time will tell if the village parson can practice what he preaches. Like At Home in Mitford, the first novel in the series, this book is filled with the miracles and mysteries of everyday life.
And the affirmation of what some of us already know: Life in a small town is rarely quiet. And absolutely never boring.
