Jan Karon left an award-winning career in advertising to settle in a peaceful village in North Carolina. There, she began writing about a small fictional town not unlike her new home. At Home in Mitford captures all the wonderful characters, special moments, and unhurried charm of life in a place many would move to if it were really on the map. When gentle, middle-aged Father Tim first arrives at the rectory, he longs only for a personal and spiritual routine. But an enormous black dog responding only to scriptural commands adopts him; he acquires an outspoken young boy; and an attractive, artistic neighbor stirs up frisky feelings in his heart. Soon Father Tim is no longer a stranger. He is part of the colorful landscape of people who have both tales to tell and secrets to keep. The themes of At Home in Mitford are familiar ones: love and faith, courage and sacrifice, but through Father Tim's eyes, the townspeople and the challenges they face become new again. Mitford becomes a celebration of the strength and good humor of the human spirit.

Quaint.

Forgot to add this the first time around: "But This Is the South": Ambivalent Regionalism in Jan Karon's Mitford Novels." Worth a read.

Mitford reminds me of Andy Griffith’s Mayberry but with cell phones and Andy as a minister. Mishaps occur when Father Tim suddenly acquires a large dog and must care for a fifth-grade boy, both of which are new experiences for him. And his begrudging attempts to follow his doctor’s advice to lose weight also create humor.
The narrator is best in his Foghorn Leghorn tone – don’t cha know – for one of the characters.
Best for those who don’t mind Scripture tossed in with their fiction. Middle-aged and older folks can definitely relate to Father Tim.
