Publisher Summary:

It’s easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet, Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won’t go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that’s sixty years old. Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.

Lynn's Review

I loved this book. It is the first in a series of books and I can’t wait to read the rest of the them. When I was reading this, I felt like it was Anne of Green Gables for adults. It was a fun and light read, yet also dealt with real life things. The story takes place in a small town. Because I grew up in a small town and currently live in a small town, I found this story enjoyable. The author describes Mitford exactly how a small town is. From the church, to the store, to the local restaurant. If you have lived in a small town or have every wanted to live in a small town I think you will enjoy this series! My review of Book 2 A Light In the Window and Book 3 These High Green Hills.
