Light From Heaven

Light From Heaven by Jan Karon

Here's the blurb:
Father Timothy Kavanaugh has been asked to “come up higher” more than once. He did, after all, raise a thrown-away boy, adopt a dog the size of a Buick, and recite his wedding vows at the tender age of sixtysomething. But he’s never been asked to do the impossible.

While farm-sitting with Cynthia outside Mitford, the retired Episcopal priest is charged with the revival of Holy Trinity, a mountain church that’s been closed for forty years. His bishop’s further mandate: “Get it up and running, ASAP.” Fortunately, like Daniel, he’s been given an angel (albeit one with an unlikely talent for barbering).

The "Mitford Years" series is my not so guilty pleasure. They're my happy books. Light From Heaven is the last of the series. I was expecting all the ties to be, well, tied-up, but all I was left was more questions. It didn't feel like it was complete, I wanted more... Maybe, just maybe, there will be more books to come. One can hope!

Rate: 3.5/5
