These are great and I’ve loved them for years, they hold up to repeated readings. Excellent book for times of trouble. ( )

After being reminded by a friend that this series is delightfully like "curling up with a cup of tea," I realized that the whole series is missing from my Goodreads list. It's been quite a while since I've read this book, so I'm just guessing on the date. I won't rate it, because the details are fuzzy, but I loved this series. Don't pick it up if you're looking for something exceptionally deep or literary. It's just a warm-hearted and good series with characters striving to learn and do what it right.

Despite The Rector being more than a little "slow on the draw" in many scenarios,
from the Church Attic and disappearing food to his inviting neighbor,
the heavily Christian plot moves pleasantly along.

Missing Barnabus went on way too long and The Rector going to Sligo (huh?)
instead of staying home and welcoming him safely back as he healed was hard to understand. ( )

First words
He left the coffee-scented warmth of the Main Street Grill and stood for a moment under the green awning.
Philippians 4:13, for Pete's sake.
Consider it done!
No rest for the wicked and the righteous don't need none.
Knitting, he thought, was a comfort to the soul. It was regular. It was repetitious. And in the end, it amounted to something.
