The Father Timothy Mitford Series by Jan Karon came to my attention through my Goodreads friend Carol. Not realizing this was a series of novels, in my typical fashion, I began with the second novel. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the second book immensely and hightailed over to the library to hoard a number more!

These fictional stories center on an Episcopal priest in the small North Carolina town named Mitford and its inhabitants. The characters are human and many of their situations, foibles, and failings humorous.

The Bible quotes as well as other literary ones are inspirational. After reading the first and second books, I am delighted with Father Tim, the town of Mitford and grateful to have been led to it! Ironically, the first novel in the series takes place around the Fourth of July!

    My mom adored Fr. Tim and all of The goings on in Mitford. She read every one that had been written. There are LOTS.

  2. I’m glad you like them, Diane! They are my favorite comfort reading. I’m eager to hear your responses to the rest of the series.
