Gentle Father Tim is an Episcopalian rector who enjoys a gentle romance in a gentle North Carolina town full of quirky, unthreatening characters, reminiscent of those who lived in television's Mayberry. Books in the Mitford series are also available from Penguin, giving them the rare distinction of having crossed over from a Christian to a mainstream publishing house.
Summary
The first novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon's beloved series set in America's favorite small town: Mitford. <br> <br> 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.
