|Plot Summary of At Home In Mitford|
|"This first book of a series, At Home in Mitford, is absolutely wonderful. The story is all about Father Tim, and his congregation, and the happenings that take place in the church. For instance, there is Emma Newland, the grouchy old secretary who is concerned about Father Tim's work.
Also in the story, is a poor unloved boy whose parents couldn't care less about him, and he needs a father figure. So Father Tim more or less adopts this boy into his heart and home and loves him like his own boy.
Along also comes a stray dog, that has no home as well, so Father Tim cares adopts the dog as well, calling him Barnaba.
Father Tim has also been a bachelor for many years. But maybe not for long. The new neighbor next door, Cynthia Coppersmith, who is a famous children's author, comes to introduce herself to Father Tim.
This is a terrific down-home book, and first in the Mitford series!"
