Description

Jan Karon has attracted an enthusiastic population of fans to her stories set in a little town so cozy that everyone wants to put their feet up and stay awhile. The adventures of Father Tim and his shaggy, scripture-loving dog, Barnabus, begun in At Home in Mitford, have captured the affection of listeners nationwide. As These High, Green Hills begins, Father Tim and his talented neighbor have just returned from their honeymoon. Settling into life together in the small rectory, they find new adventures and challenges waiting for them. A church group camping trip turns the frisky Barnabus into an intrepid explorer. Troubled young parishioners appear with problems and growing pains that test the newlyweds' endurance. Jan Karon has filled Mitford with an engaging assortment of characters, both serious and comic. John McDonough's warm-hearted narration lifts these residents from the pages and sends them down the streets of this now-familiar town. Sit back and let them share their joys, their tears, and their hopes with you.

        July 29, 1996
        This third in the Mitford series (At Home in Mitford--a 1996 ABBY Book of the Year finalist--and Light in the Window) is another sympathetic portrayal of small-town Southern life with just enough drama to carry the plot and gracefully developed portraits of endearing characters. Allusions to past events and cameos by peripheral characters will delight the fan but may frustrate the reader new to Karon's work. Mitford is a Southeastern mountain town where everyone turns out for benefactress Sadie Baxter's birthday, where the police chief gives copies of Southern Living to inmates--and where social trouble brews in a hillbilly enclave across the creek. Episcopal minister Timothy Kavanagh of Lord's Chapel is the pivotal character. A lifelong bachelor adjusting to marriage for the first time at 63, he has no perspective on his faith and future until he and his new wife, Cynthia, are lost--and found--in a cave on a youth-group camping trip. Most compelling in Timothy's affectionately drawn flock are the young people. Thirteen-year-old Dooley Barlowe was abandoned at the rectory and now struggles to adjust to Timothy's Pygmalion efforts; Lacey Turner, also 13, is saved from her father's abuse as much by Timothy as by social services. Like glass chips tumbling in a kaleidoscope, the people at Mitford fall neatly into place at story's end, having provided a cozy and satisfying read. Author tour.

      • content: Karon's Mitford series continues, with Father Tim Kavanaugh (an Episcopalian rector in the small Southern village) finding great joy in his new marriage. John McDonough brings the people of Mitford to life through an expressive, but never overstated, reading. His rich, slightly gruff voice never strains or hurries and always succeeds in finding an apt characterization for all the characters whose stories interweave to form this very satisfying novel. Through changes in tone, accents of varying degrees, and portrayal of all the emotions that make up the human condition, McDonough becomes these people, and the listener is quickly entranced. This is an audio experience that will be long remembered. M.A.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
