Jan Karon at her best
this is a wonderful audiobook about Father Tim's return to his hometown after 40 years of absence. It is a poignant journey back, told with humor and some sadness. It makes Father Tim more real and more human. The narrator is excellent.

Nice balance between follow-up for characters of her Mitford series, and stand-alone plot for new readers. A page-turner. . . didn't put it down til the last paragraph. Clever surprise ending. Keeps the reader engrossed. Readers will be hoping for more books with this visit-to-the past theme.
