This book follows Fr. Tim and Cynthia in their newlywed days. This book is very similar to its predecessors, full of cozy small-town hijinks. Recommended for readers who enjoyed the earlier books in the series. ( )

Again, if you liked the first books, this will be just as pleasurable - like a weekend in the country with good friends and nit having to do anything but be mellow. ( )

Book description
City and home town life - Fiction 3rd book in Mitford series Once again in Mitford, a southern village of local characters so heartwarming and hilarious.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140257934, Paperback)

The village of Mitford is soothing tonic for a readership that feels starved for community and yearns for clear morals. The recently married Father Tim and his plain-folk neighbors live the best of Christianity in everyday life. Even the rampant gossip in Mitford is the good kind: folks worrying about other folks and everyone minding one another's business out of concern rather than malice. As a result, no one faces a crisis alone. Often the crises are cause for a belly laugh, such as the rectory's new computer system that seems programmed to torment. But just as often the crises have the bite of real-life problems, such as the bloody young girl in shredded clothes, whom Father Tim finds after she was beaten by her drunken father, and the soul-wrenching despair Father Tim feels when he loses a surrogate mother. The heavily quoted scripture gives a day-to-day context for biblical teachings as well as spiritual solace during the sadder days at Mitford. --Gail Hudson
