Father Tim

I read Jan Karon's books about Mitford and Father Tim regularly. I stayed up late last night to finish Home to Holly Springs. In it Father Tim receives a mysterious unsigned message asking him to "come home". With his wife's blessings, he and his dog Barnabas drive to Mississippi.

I enjoyed this book and visiting with characters I care about. However I think it tries to wrap up too many things in one book and therefore has a little too much reliance on coincidences. I know that there are going to be more of the Father Tim series and wish she could have spread some of this out more.

  • I also enjoyed this book, but agree with you about the coincidences. I'm looking forward to reading more about Father Tim in upcoming books.
