      I m not going to rate this bookI ll explain why.I noted in an earlier review that many consider these women s books I questioned what makes a book a woman s book Then I found A Common Life The Wedding Story, the wedding book and I couldn t take it So I guess I may have gotten my answer though some may not agree To me that book was so totally an emotional story it seemed estrogen soaked I put it aside and didn t try to rate or review it I figured, hey I get it, some people just want a book about [...]

      Whenever my life gets too busy, I m drawn to simple books Not simple in terms of writing bodice rippers are for cold winter nights but simple in terms of plot This summer, Mitford has been a great source of comfort In this installment, Father Tim is dealing with life after retirment, and finding it not exactly to his liking While some of the conflict in this novel is a little too black and white to my liking, I really appreciated seeing how several characters were approaching faith and wrestling [...]

      This is the kind of Mitford book I love The last few I read apparently happened after this one, so I m reading the series out of order It doesn t really matter I remember not liking the ones that take place outside of Mitford as much This one takes place completely in Mitford, woohoo I ve already read the one where Dooley and Lace get married and I remember being confused, mostly because all the skipping around to different characters and only using pronouns so I never knew who she was talking a [...]

      I found myself reading this book a little bit slower than the others Often because I know the Scripture the author is quoting, I sort of rush through it This time I took the time to read it fully, slowly, and grab the context of how it fits within the situation in the story.Maybe because I read this one a little slowly, I found that I enjoyed this book than some of the others I like how things are going for Father Tim, for Dooley, for Cynthia, for Hope, for George I m not sure how many books [...]

      I love my time in Mitford The characters feel like people I d love to get to know, and the setting makes me wish to visit North Carolina at least once before God calls me Home Ever in a situation when you can just see what s going to happen next or eventually , but the characters involved just don t see it coming Yeah, there were several moments like that in this book for me But, despite my frustration at the character s choices in some parts, I left this journey to Mitford feeling hopeful about [...]

      I never thought that I would rate a Jan Karon this poorly but this book just made me depressed and I wanted it to end as soon as possible.Father Tim is nearing 70 and he has diabetes type 2 Still he does not do anything to preserve his life He is packing his things to go to the mountains in Tennessee with his wife Cynthia where they will live in a hut with cement floor and try to be an inspiration to children and youth in that area But they never get there He doesn t exercise, he doesn t eat wel [...]

      I had started reading Jan Karon s Mitford Series on her eighth and ninth releases Shepherds Abiding and Light From Heaven , not realizing at the time it was a series I loved the entire series and began reading the others in order Problem was, I had several unanswered questions from the two books I listed This was the last one in the series that I had not read and it tied all of the unanswered questions together I believe Jan Karon is a brilliant writer with a true understanding of people s perso [...]

    8. Julie on said:

      I have enjoyed all 6 of the previous Mitford books but this one is my favorite for so many reasons There were too many wonderful messages lessons to share them all but all basically saying count your blessings , stop and smell the roses , listen that you may hear The joy of receiving a brief phone call from your grown child sharing a momentous event Why does it take an accident or illness to slow us down enough to appreciate the people, places events around us The love and companionship a pet ad [...]

      Library copy Mitford series 7 Love this series And I probably say this every time, this title is better than the last, deeper, moving, engaging, inspiring My favorite characters in this title beside Father Tim and Barnabas are Uncle Billy, Buck Leeper and Dooley Barlow I was not so keen on Hope and Helene, and there seem to be protagonists in this one The crux of the story, which I won t spoil but it involves a Stop sign, is so well done and realistic and makes the reader think in real life t [...]

    10. Joy Gerbode on said:

      Although I love this entire series, this is the BEST I LOVE the Father s message on giving thanks, and want to commit the entire message to memory so I can remind myself daily I have also been further encouraged to take care of my own diabetes due to Father Tim s struggle with the dreaded disease This is absolutely a wonderful book of inspiration, both spiritually, and healthwise.

    11. Jerusha on said:

      I enjoyed this book than any of the previous I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole series so far Their personal struggles interactions then from those internal struggles are quite relateable realistic.

    12. Teri-K on said:

      This is one of my favorite in the series I like the balance of plot and character, humor and pathos We enough of the minor characters including Dooley to make me happy but the focus is still firmly on Father Tim In this book Father Tim and Cynthia are back in Mitford and everything looks rosy They re preparing to head to rural Tennessee to work with children, Dooley is finishing his first year of college, George from the first book is being released from prison it all looks fine But just like re [...]

    13. Bonnie on said:

      I love my visits to Mitford Fr Tim hits a particular dark time in relation to his diabetes regimen We all do it in our own way I feel fine and don t want to be tied down to things I Have To Do in order to live Freedom from specific diets, freedom from specific exercise regimens or a day without meds that in themselves may cause problems Then we go on that eating binge, stop exercising for a while or make up our own meds schedule without the Dr s official okey dokey and the darkness lurking in th [...]

      I last visited Mitford over seven years ago The truth be told, I thought I had completed the series with A New Song, Father Tim s retirement and interm on the isle of Whitecap It was a pleasant surprise to discover I had missed adventures with my old friends Well, seven years is a long time to be apart People change Was it me Had my tastes changed Or was it Ms Karon s writing I found I had to push myself to get through the first third of the book Then, for whatever reason, perhaps reacquainting [...]

      This is the seventh book in the Mitford Years series.Loved this book just as much as the first 6 books.The book is centered around Father Tim the now retiredPastor and the town of Mitford Shows all the ups and downs of life and the wonderfulquirky people that are Father Tim s friends and family.

    16. Cindy on said:

    19. Lynne Ward on said:

      I continue to really like this series Down to earth, a renewal of faith, a quiet reflection.

    20. Cathy on said:

      I agree with the other reviewer who said that it s hard to find a chronological listing of the Mitford series books, and I have messed up, even though this is my second time through the series This is book 7, which I read after reading book 9 I knew I d skipped book 8 I m saving that one for closer to Christmas because of its Christmas theme It seems, though, that the various book listings that I ve seen differ in their orders.Be that as it may, this was another appreciated stroll through Mitfor [...]

    22. Shelly on said:

      I ve been reading my way slowly through Jan Karon s delightful Mitford series so I don t always recall Father Tim s relationship with the many vivid characters that populate the series and I have a hard time remembering details from the previous books I only know that each is heartwarming in its own way In this Mountain, the seventh in the series, is a little heavier in overall tone than its predecessors as Father Tim himself struggles with some very dark internal demons rather than helping othe [...]

    23. Deb on said:

      Returning to Mitford and the life of Father Tim and Cynthia is always so heartwarming and uplifting Sure, Father Tim has his problems he even gets kidnapped at one point in this book, and he has serious medical emergency But his reliance on the Good Lord, prayer, and quoting scripture always gives me hope that things will work out And they do and I am blessed by hearing how his faith helps him through the low points of his life It is also good to see how he blesses others in his interactions wit [...]

    24. Christi on said:

      This book was a little heavy handed on new people in town finding religion compared to earlier books in the series Hope Winchester and Miss Pringle.This book also jumps around a whole lot We barely see Dooley He s in college now but that isn t really discussed either We never visit Luella at Hope House Father Tim is near death and then ta da he s back to health and running I did like that through emails, we keep in touch with the folks on Whitecap as well as Walter and Katherine and Father Rola [...]

    25. Teri Reck on said:

      Another beautiful book about Father Tim and his life in Mitford Part of this tale, is an accurate depiction of depression and its insidious pain Part of it is the portrayal of those discovering Christ s love for them for the first time There are broken relationships mended, and other relationships broken There are many tragedies and much joy, each in their turn I definitely recommend this series

    26. Michele on said:

      Another entry into this series about Father Timothy Kavanagh the residents of Mitford In this one, Timothy Cynthia have returned to Mitford after filling in as priest in the island community of Whitecap Life goes on with its ups downs and people grow older The two major occurrences in this book is showing Timothy in a new light as he struggles to battle his diabetes and a major fire destroys a home and injures its resident.

    27. Stephanie Fosnight regester on said:

      What is this, my eighth time through the series I love picking up the Mitford books every few years, especially when ministry life is busy and painful Father Tim and the gang offer not only a welcome temporary escape from the real world, but also wisdom, perspective and peace I carry back with me into it.

    28. Sharon Peterson on said:

      For some reason, it took me awhile to read this book It ended happily as do most of her books Now on to 2 small books, which I ll probably finish tonight and then the next book in the series Cindy, I only have 2 bigger books and 1 smaller book yet to read of your s and then I will be shipping them to you

    29. Jeanne on said:

      I had a hard time getting into this book at the beginning However, as I read along it got a lot better Father Tim and Cynthia bring to life the goings on in their marriage and their little town of Mitford Father Tim dislikes change but he dislikes retirement even He is put on a painful tourney that shakes his faith, his marriage and the whole town of Mitford A good read.
