At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon

“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. Enter the world of Mitford, and you won’t want to leave. “

In this first novel, in the Mitford Series, we are introduced to the main character, Father Tim who is at the age where he should be considering retirement, but instead Jan Karon finds unexpected adventures to send him on.  Along the way we meet the colorful and lovable town folk who have amazing relationships. Jan Karon makes gardening, enjoying food, family, friends and pets seem magical.  I read these stories when I need a warm and fuzzy fix.
