    Description

    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. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old. Suddenly Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And listeners get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.
    ©1997 Jan Karon (P)1998 Penguin Audiobooks

    Go for Unabridged version

    A friend at work told me about this series. I downloaded the abridged version, and told my friend I just didn't like the story as much as she did. She borrowed it and hated it--the unabridged version was much better, she said. I wholeheartedly agree. Having listened to both, there's no comparison: the unabridged version is richer, funnier, and more touching and heart-warming than the parsed over abridged version. It's worth listening to the extra hours. It's a wonderfully COMPLETE story!

    Spell Binding

    This book was recommended to me by several friends. I haven't read a book in a great many years but when I sat down with this one I was glued to it. I love the little family, the little town and all the members of the town. Every single person in the book are so real you wish you lived there. When I finished this book, I immediately ran out and bought the next in the series, and then the next after that. Once you start reading, you need to know that you won't be able to stop after the first book.

    Wonderfully entertaining

    I am on book 4. I am amazed at how wonderful Jan Karon reads her own books. She is an awesome narrator. My children, 6 and 7, are even getting into them. Thank you, Jan, for making this. I actually look forward to remodeling now, because it is when I can listen to these books!

    A very sweet feel good story

    Would you consider the audio edition of At Home in Mitford to be better than the print version?

    I listen to books on the run, while driving, doing housework, running errands, etc. It makes chores and commuting more enjoyable, and I finally read books that have been on my planned reading list. In this case, I have the hard copy book at home, but have never taken the time to read it. Now I can cross this book off of my list, and I am ready to read more of Jan Karon's books.

    What other book might you compare At Home in Mitford to and why?

    I would compare the homespun stories and writing to Garrison Keillor's books.

    Which character – as performed by Jan Karon – was your favorite?

    Father Tim is my favorite character.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book took me through a range of emotions, but my favorite parts made me laugh.

    Charming

    I truly enjoyed the small town charm of this book. The characters after believable without being and cute without being corny.

    I didn't realize it was abridged.

    I really like the series and was excited to have the opportunity to hear the author narrative. I was extremely disappointed that the bare bones of the book were so sparce and the wonderful details and a good deal of the essence of the take were omitted. Please do a better job of letting customers know that they are only receiving a stingy sample of the actual book.

    Inspiring and uplifting

    This inspiring and uplifting story introduces that you to a special person and all the unique and colorful people in his life. A good start to what I believe will be an excellent series of heartwarming books. I look forward to hearing more.

    Abridged version lacking

    Having read the book, abridged makes it all facts, not much heart or character development

    I fell in love with Mitford almost 20 years ago!

    I’ve read all of Jan Karon’s Mitford books over and over through the years and am now so excited to be able to listen on audible.com. I’ve just finished with At Home in Mitford and am making my way back through the entire series. It’s like going home to visit old, dear friends.
