Read this book to my mom who is in a nursing home. Love the fact that we have many more to go!

I read the Mitford series when I was going through my divorce. It helped me tremendously. The stories take you to a happy and peaceful place. I'm not Christian, but there are lots of "lessons" to be learned.

I have read this series a few times and find all the books enjoyable, though sometimes a bit ponderous. I am not Christian, but I often read Christian fiction because I like "gentle" fiction. If you are like me, I would read Miss Read (start with Village School or Thrush Green) first, then go to Jan Karon, if you don't mind the occasional bit of preachiness.

A humorous detailed look at the life of a minister in a small southern town. See into the personal life and ministry of a man that must deal with God and people on a daily 24/7 basis. You will meet many colorful and varied characters, and come to love each one and loathe a few troublemakers. Although this series deals with many weighty topics, it is bathed in a delightful uplifting humor that is rarely found in Christian fiction. A very few slang terms are used in this series, and maybe one or two inappropriate words for true "Christian" fiction, but it is easily dealt with. I have the entire set and could hardly wait as each book came on the market. Sadly the Mitford series is complete, but hey, now you can get them as a set or even used. (Look on the bright side) I would say this is currently my favorite series. I drank in each book and reread them too. If you start with At Home in Mitford you will be hooked.
