Another one...

Another session on the couch with a Mitford novel. It’s an addiction I tell you! But what a wonderful addiction to have!

I just had to start the third novel of series right after I finished the second one. These High, Green Hills, did not disappoint.

Here’s the blurb:

America’s favorite small town will find a big place in your heart.

In These High, Green Hills we’re once again in Mitford, a southern village of local characters so heartwarming and hilarious you’ll wish you lived next door.

At last, Mitford’s rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love’s challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim’s sofa-sized dog, Cynthia’s urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who’s become like a son to the rector.

Add a life-changing camping trip, the arrival of the town’s first policewoman, and a new computer that required patience of a saint, and you know you’re in for another engrossing visit to Mitford -- the little town that readers everywhere love to call home.

What can I say that I haven’t mentioned on the two previous posts? It’s an awesome book, which is just one book in a series of wonderful books.
