A Good Book is Good to Find

I finished this book this morning before I left for Abilene.

I loved it.

I have read all of the "Mitford" books by Jan Karon and enjoyed all of them.

I did often wonder, though, how Father Tim had got to be Father Tim.

This book answers those questions and more.

It also made me remember how much I enjoy a well written book, a book with complete sentences and proper grammar. It made me remember how a good book, one with good subject matter, makes me feel when I finish it. It made me realize what drivel I had been reading lately.

It is not often that I finish a book that I can recommend to everyone with no reservations. This book is one that I can.

Pups know enough to get out of the way.

i agree, there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good, well-written book.

I haven't read a really good book in a long time. Maybe I will try this series.

I love a good book. Do I need to start with the first in the series?

PS: Don't blow away today.

Hey, are you talking about my blog? hahaha. I love when bloggers talk about their favorite books and current reads. I keep adding them to my list to check out. I was at a stand still for so long looking for new reading material.

PS Love the new look. And my retinas said, "Thank You!".

To all: the Mitford Years books tell the story of Father Tim and his wife Cynthia (Episcopalian, obviously). This new book is the first in a series of Father Tim books covering their life after he retires. I did not know that it was the beginning of a series till after I picked it up.

I have always found all of the books to stand alone just fine.
