As they say, “everything old is new again.” Jan Karon is a perennially popular author who has written a series of books about life in the tiny village of Mitford as seen through the life of its Episcopal pastor – Fr. Tim.
Though the last volume of the Mitford Series was written in 2005, Jan came out with a last and final Fr. Tim title in 2007 – “Home to Holly Springs” which brings the series back full circle as Fr. Tim visits his hometown after a 25 years absence.
This series of 10 books is a delight. From the first volume when we meet Fr. Tim through the last title in 2005 “Light from Heaven” we feel like we are a part of this village, these people, this life.
Seems like this series is so very popular because people enjoy being a part a simpler, happier life where everyone is truly your neighbor – even if only in the readers eye.
You don’t need to read the whole series, but start at the beginning with “At Home in Mitford.” It will leave you smiling and peaceful!
