I have to say, the entire time I was reading this book, I felt as if I was just down the road from Mitford, the fictional town created by author Jan Karon.
It had a priest as one of the main characters, just as Mitford had Father Tim (although the Grace book has a Catholic priest instead of an Episcopal priest). The storyline centers around the happenings and mishaps of the townsfolk. People are tight-knit and neighborly, just as they are in Mitford. It’s the kind of place everyone wants to live, but such a place probably doesn’t exist.
This is one of those feel-good novels that is soothing to the soul and easy to read. It is uncomplicated and pleasant. So if that’s the kind of story you are looking for, pick it up at your local bookstore or library, and enjoy!
