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 sixty years old. Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.
Bucolic Mitford is an attractive little village. Its rector, the bachelor Father Tim, is craving something more than small-town life, however. An attractive woman moves next door to the rectory; an oversized dog moves INTO the rectory; and a mystery concerning a jewel theft bubbles up amid secrets, love, and village intrigue.
