At Home in Mitford follows the story of Father Tim, a rector in Carolina, as he just bumbles through day to day life. It's all very harmless, quite sweet (I'm sure some people would say possible a bit twee.) Although Father Tim is the central focus, I didn't find the book overpoweringly religious (luckily)
Nice use of humour, so even when things go a bit wrong there's some nice light relief.
I really enjoyed this book, in fact more than I enjoyed the second one in the series. If this is your 'bag' then I'd definitely give it a go!
This review applies to this book and to the series. I also heartily recommend the first three-book box set linked here:
The Mitford Years: At Home in Mitford/A Light in the Window/These High Green Hills, Out to Canaan (Mitford Years Series , So3)
7 books later (and I've just completed the series) it's almost become part of life to read a bit every night.
Yes, it's fiction, but so much of it rings through.
And it's not saccharine sweet - there's a lot of funny, awful, gritty real-life stuff in here.
Now the whole series is on my shelves and I'm very grateful to the lady who gave us the first book and said "try this - I think you might like it".
No great excitement, but lots of moving and memorable moments. The Southern dialect is a little difficult to understand at first, but I soon got used to it. It’s the first in a series of nine books about the village of Mitford, and just as enjoyable on my second reading as it was the first time I read it, six years previously.
