Home to Holly Springs
By the time I finished the Mitford books, I had kind of overdosed on them. It had been a while since I read them when Home to Holly Springs became available on Bookmooch, so I decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did. Fr. Tim returns to his boyhood home and interacts with old friends and neighbors as well as some who never met him or his family. He learns about old family secrets and about love. Putting him in a new place with new people allows us to visit our old friend Fr. Tim without feeling like we are reading the same story, only different.
If you enjoyed the Miford books, you should like this one too.
