Jan Karon's NEW Mitford Book Reviewed
While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he’s offered one, he decides he doesn’t want it. Maybe he’s lost his passion.
His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion—for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley’s brother, Sammy, still enraged by his mother’s abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim’s prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.
All this as Wanda’s Feel Good Café opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own?
I have loved all of the Mitford books and this was no exception. Every character feels like family. I've been rooting for Dooley since the day he became part of this series, and I was so happy to read he's doing well and making plans for a future with Lace. And I felt for Sammy who felt like he didn't deserve love and had a hard time trusting people who were nice to him. Being a foster parent, I could relate somewhat. While we've been fortunate to have foster kids who want a family, I'm sure we'll run into our "sammy's" in time. This book also made me want to live in a small close knit town like Mitford. Maybe some day :)
This series would make a GREAT gift for any book lovers in your life who enjoy Christian fiction, that isn't preachy, or family fiction that just draws you in with its lovable characters!!!
