Still a great read!

This is the latest in the Mitford Series; possibly the last. I already loved the story, the characters, and the writing style of Jan Karon, so I knew I'd love this title, too. The writing in this one is a little choppy compared to the previous titles, and I did find it hard to follow at times, but it's still a great read. The setting of a little mountain community in the South creates the backdrop for some very colorful characters, and their stories range from heartbreaking to hilarious. Father Tim is the Episcopal priest that loving meddles in their lives, becoming a part of their stories. I've not only found this series to be entertaining, but educational in a way, as Father Tim sets a beautiful example of what it means to selflessly serve God in such a variety of circumstances. As the author reveals this central character's thought process as he deals with difficult people and intense situations, the reader recognizes that he, as the rest of us, is simply a somewhat flawed human being trying to do his best. Much of the book is light-hearted in tone, and peppered throughout are the traumas of real life. I very much recommend this series for anyone who would enjoy what amounts to pretty light fare. The writing is excellent (although this particular title isn't as buttoned up as the ones preceding it), and the characters are wonderful! If this is the final book of the series, I have to say I hate to see it end!
