So....we are moving so I have had to slow my reading. It is making me crazy that I can't take these lazy days of summer and just read and read. Instead I need to pack and paint and do boring stuff.
I am sneaking in a few minutes to read, so today I am going to review
At Home In Mitford
This was under the category: A Book With A Map In The Front
This is the story of Father Tim who lives in the small town of Mitford. He is the beloved pastor of a local church who cares about everyone in town. He often is left feeling that he wants something more. Soon a homeless dog becomes his closest companion, and a young 11 year old boy comes to live with him while his grandfather recovers from being sick. He meets an attractive new neighbor that he quickly becomes smitten with. All of this while trying to manage a thief who had been living in the bell tower of his church, and helping to build a nursing home for the town. Father Tim soon lets his own health go and almost dies in the process.
This was a really cute book. It was an easy read and a sweet story. Every town needs a Father Tim - someone who they can count on to help them when they are in need and to tell their problems to. Most of the characters were likable and the author did a good job fitting them all together.
