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, has more than he can handle–with church secretary Emma Garrett managing his every move, a lovable but unloved boy named Dooley thrust into his care, and the charm of a new neighbor who effects surprising change in his stick-in-the-mud habits.
