Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon

I just HAD to pop back in here and tell you guys about this book! I am a huge fan of the Mitford books, and Jan Karon's newest novel - the beginning of the Father Tim series, is wonderful! I had the chance to read this over the weekend, and truly it was like sitting down and learning about an old friend's childhood.

As usual, Jan Karon does a wonderful job of making you feel like you are side by side with Father Tim as he travels back to his home town in Mississippi for the first time in almost forty years. There were a few surprises along the way, but all of them were in keeping with the story of God's grace in the lives of these dear characters. And again, the door was left wide open to come back for another visit. Given the circumstances, I know I'll be back!! The sooner the better! Excellent start to a new series Ms. Karon! I look forward to many more stories together!! I highly recommend this book!!

Merry Christmas to you, too, Kim.

I know, I know. Nice gift.

Lots of books have been waiting for their special home. Can't wait to put them away. He left the shelves in the shop and just went to get them...while my books rest in sad little floor piles. All this and the clock is ticking. : ) Fortunately, if I get really stressed, I've got some fudge to take the edge off.

Hope your celebration is fabulous.
