FATHER TIM IS GETTING READY TO RETIRE. HE IS CONTEMPLATING WHAT GOING "OUT TO CANAAN" WILL MEAN TO HE AND CYNTHIA, HIS BRIDE OF 2 YEARS, TO DOOLEY, BARNABAS AND PUNEY! ALL OF THE MITFORD CHARACTERS HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT HIS RETIREMENT AND NOT ALL ARE HAPPY!
JAN KARON MAKES MITFORD AND IT'S RESIDENTS COME ALIVE. JOHN MCDONOUGH IS AMAZING AS THE NARRATOR. CHARACTERS ARE RECOGNIZABLE JUST BY LISTENING TO THE VOICES AND DIALECT HE GIVES EACH ONE.
THIS IS A GREAT READ BUT A BETTER "LISTEN"!

The Mitford Series
This whole series is about everyday happenings in Mitford centered around the village Priest. It is good reading with no violence or bad language. Very suitable for any age group of readers. I enjoyed the first volume so much that i have now purchased the whole series.
