When the first book in the Mitford series begins, Father Tim is 59 years old and doesn't realize that his life is about to be shaken up by a stray dog, a needy boy, a redheaded housekeeper, a redheaded secretary ("a matched set!"), a jewelry theft, and last but not least a very attractive new neighbor.

At the age of eighty-six, she occupied the largest house in the village, with the most sweeping view. And she owned the most land, much of it given over to an aged but productive apple orchard. And she owned the most land, much of it given over to an aged but productive apple orchard ct, the village cooks said that the best pies weren’t made of Granny Smiths, but of the firm, slightly tart Sadie Baxters, as they’d come to be called. As far as anyone knew, Miss Sadie had never given away any of the money her father had earned in his lumber operation in the valley. But she dearly loved to give away apples-by the sack, by the peck, by the bushel.

A story to return to again and again

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 by, a mystifying jewel thief, and a secret that's sixty years old.

Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich provincial comedy in which mysteries and miracles abound.

  • This is an extremely abridged version of this fabulous complete book. There is just one brief mention of the mayor, absolutely no mention of the bakery lady and the orange marmalade cake lady, and not one wit about Father Tim's hair and Fanny's attempts to control it!! Missing also are the hilarious exchanges between him and the gang at the Grill, not one single joke from Uncle Billy or outlandish rant from Rose. You hardly get any sense of the frustrations between him and Emma the church secretary and the relationship between he and Cynthia just sails by with hardly any angst at all. I can't believe Jan Karon agreed to such a short abbreviated reading of her books. I've already ordered the second and now I'm not sure I even care to get it. I would love to have the complete audio of these great stories.

  • This is a tightly woven tapestry of village life in a not so fictional town in the western hills of North Carolina. Some live in quiet despiration, some are living large and out loud, and some are just trying to live.

    This is an exploration of cultural cross pollenation as seen through the eyes of Father Tim, an Episcopal Priest. There are secrets, hidden agendas, nefarious characters, bad actors, and all are in the need of reconciliation with God. In some cases they achieve the elusive redemption by "looking in the mirror".

    This is a great read for non-believers as well as mature Christians with a committed faith journey.

    Have great joy in the journey.

  • Just read the 14th book in the series and decided to go back to the beginning. Over time, Jan Maron's prose has become more lovely and poignant, and while her books are spiritual they are never Religious. I would love to walk down Main Street in Mitford and say hello to all the wonderful townspeople. Then shop at the Local or Happy Endings. Why in the world has this book never been made as a tv series by PBS? Please read it.

  • Oh my gosh, this book... will restore your faith in humanity. I like to read it once in a while just to clear my mind of all the bad stuff of this world and get lost in a little innocent hamlet with the village parson and the quirky townsfolk. The thing is though, Jan Karon can WRITE. She's a really amazing writer and never resorts to cheesiness. It is actually very funny, clever and uplifting. Get it, you will love it!

    A New York Times Best Seller and a recent Hallmark Movie!

    It's refreshing to read a well written book that's not only engaging, but witty, heartfelt, and refreshingly clean. But that doesn't mean this fictitious little southern charm town doesn't have its quirky characters or scandalous stories. There's something for everyone without the sexual smut and vulgar words that drive so much of today's book market.

    In this story about an aging, slightly overweight priest, a mangy dog, a quirky neighbor, and a homeless boy, there's no cussin, no sex, and no mayhem! … Well, there's a little mayhem, but pure delightful. In the high, green hills of Mitford, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. This book is the first in a series, but it also stands alone very nicely all by itself. It'll make you laugh out loud, cry a little, and inspire you to try a little harder and be a little better, remembering that behind every secret there's a story waiting to be told.

    "We never, ever know what heartache lies under those rooftops. … Everybody is trying to swallow something that won't go down." —Jan Karon, At Home in Mitford

    "God asks us not to worry about tomorrow. … Just stick with today, is what he recommends. Of course, it helps to stick with him, while we're at it." —Jan Karon, At Home in Mitford

  • this is the story of a small town in the Carolinas, Blue ridge mountains by the name of Mitford. In this first book of The Mitford Series, you meet Father Tim and his community of parishioners. Father Tim is being used up, run down, and becoming totally exhausted by all that he needs to do for the town of Mitford and his congregation. This is a delightful read for anyone no matter what your relgion is, this story has you laughing, crying, and relates so well to every day life no matter where you may live. If you are in need of truly enjoyable book then this is the one you must pick up. very creative writing by Jan Karon.

  • I believe I read this series twenty some years ago and decided to read it again as an e-book. I am enjoying it now, possibly more than I did the first time. You definitely have a different perspective at 50 years old versus 20. Take time to enjoy the characters and the little village of Mitford, you'll be happy you did.

  • I have loved this series for years. This is the second "At home in Mitford" audio CD I have bought, had one years ago and gave it ways, I recently went on a trip and decided to order again to listen while driving. I wish Amazon would offer the others books in the Mitford set on audio CD where you can purchase them reasonable like this one, it was $15.00, they had a couple others in the set for much much higher prices, and most they did not offer at all. Seems like they want you to subscribe to their Audio file service to be able to listen to all of them.
