    Back Home in MitfordAfter a trip to Ireland Father Tim and Cynthia are home in Mitford The emotional experiences in Ireland have left Father Tim feeling down He still hasn't completely accepted retirement and acceptance is made difficult because his doctor is retiring Instead of staying Mitford Hoppy is going off to do missionary work in the Sudan Father Tim doesn't have long to be a curmudgeon Soon he's involved in all the large and small crises in MitfordThe book is filled with the delightful characters from the previous Mitford novels Ester Cunningham the mayor; Fanny Skinner and her sister Shirlene; Harley and Hèléne; plus Dooley's brothers; Father Tim's special buddies Mule and JC; and Coot It's very satisfying to have the whole gang back together Although I enjoyed the trip to Ireland it's good to be back in Mitford I've read all the Mitford books and each one ends up being a favorite Although this one is very long it's filled so much sadness joy and hope that it keeps you wanting to know how things will work out I always feel warm when reading one of these books like an honorary resident of Mitford It's not a book of epic struggles rather it's the small everyday trials and successes that make Karon's books so delightful You feel like you can take a vacation from your life and enjoy interacting with friends in Mitford I reviewed this book for the Vine Program

    This has been such a beautiful series and it has been oh so easy to get attached to all the delightful characters of which there are many All of Jan Karon's books read like diaries of the day to day lives of Father Tim and the residents of Mitford This one is an absolute gem but sadly the way it ends seems to indicate it may be the last one I really hope it is not

    Let me clarify I wasn't all that fired up to return to Mitford I liked Mitford well enough but I was afraid it would be a lesser Mitford But here I am giving it 5 stars and for purely emotional reasons Number 1 the title is worth 5 stars Number 2 it is the first book I have finished in my new home a home which feels like Somewhere Safe I sat on my deck overlooking the woods with hummingbirds buzzing in my eara gentle breeze blowing across the bluest sky reading this book in a home that entered my life from nowhere I did not see this Somewhere Safe coming I know God is good all the time but I had kind of gotten used to the heavier sorrows of life over the past two years How could I be reading this book in such a place? I do not know how these blessings occur I just read a page and watched the birds and cried and thanked the Lord This book this place 5 stars all shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well

    I have found that the Mitford books serve as respite from the anxious state of the world for me It's hard to read one and not finish with a renewed sense of hope and appreciation for the kindness of peopleThis one offers that sense of possibility and hope It's not as well written as the first ones in the series A few story lines were started and then droppedI had the sense that Karon had so many storylines to pursue that she lost track of some of them a good editor would have caught this A book worth reading but not uite as good as previous offerings

    It has been three long years of waiting and wondering about what Father Tim and the other residents of Mitford have been up to But the suspense is finally over With the publication of Somewhere Safe With Somebody Good we finally have our passport into the lovely town that we would all like to call homeI was reading the book a few days ago while I was in a waiting room The person next to me made a comment about the thickness of the book and asked what it was about After taking a second to gather my thoughts I said that it was a novel about the beautiful ebb and flow of everyday life in a small townWhat I left out was that it is a story of ordinary people who draw strength from each other Of course life in a tiny community can be just as irritating as it is soothing Anyone who has ever lived in a small town can attest to that fact But for me I'd love to live in Mitford Wouldn't it be fun to have lunch with JC Mule and Father Tim? Maybe become an honorary member of the Turkey Club I couldn't wait to get my copy of the Mitford Muse Such a uaint weekly paper unless the story is about you and the facts aren't uite rightOf the ten books in this series so far this is my favorite Father Tim is no longer a priest at Lord's Chapel but that doesn't mean his calling to minister has been taken away In fact I would say that by retiring from the parish he expanded his flock instead of decreased it This is one of those perfect books that makes you tear up and then laugh It makes you roll your eyes and then a few pages later you'll be sighing with contentment I can hardly wait for you to read the portion that the title comes from truly beautiful But my absolute favorite saying from this book is Love is an act of endless forgiveness And that my friend is what we should all be about So put your feet up snuggle in and journey back to the lovely town of Mitford Where you will be inspired to live your life loving others because of the One who loved us firstI received a copy of this book to facilitate my review

    For those who loved the first nine novels in the Mitford series this novel is a jewel For those who have never read Jan Karon's Mitford series there is no reason not to start here When I received this book to read and review I was surprised to see that it has over 500 pages much longer than any of the other books What could the author have to say in such length? Plenty There is not a slow or unnecessary passage here even the parts that review the story's past All the characters and their stories are important and of course Father Tim ties it all together

    A pleasant read and nice to get caught up with the Mitford characters but just no dramatic tension at least for this reader It seemed somewhat lackluster no matter how pleasant

    I have read everyone of the Mitford books and the subseuent 2 Father Tim novels It has been awhile since I was in Mitford and although I felt as if I was back home visiting friends although my addled brain had trouble remembering names and connections of secondary charactersKaron's writing style does not help this old gal Her chapters are divided into bite sized sections but we often enter a new section without clear to me indication of who exactly is talking or conducting businessKaron also seems to have put a lot spirituality in this book than I recall in previous volumes I felt force fed by the end of the book

    An unprecedented act on my part I jumped right in deep into a series without having yet read any of the series' earlier books which I'm aware are meant to be read in seuential order Additionally Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good is the first book whatsoever that I've read by Jan Karon Perhaps this act of mine is somewhat of a violation against the International Bookworm's Unofficial Code or something but really how could I pass up a novel with such a title when it came across my path?A possible plus here is that my rating for this novel isn't riding in on the coattails of any previousestablished love for this series or its characters since I came in absolutely new to Father Tim Kavanagh and the people of small town MitfordI can't tell you at exactly what point I became so engrossed in this novel that I wished I could swallow it whole but it must have been somewhere during the first fourth of the book I loved Karon's deft style and pacing the chance to catch woven glimpses into her well written characters' lives Their joys their hardships and their uestions are real; I could've hugged good ol' Coot Hendrick and I made a delightfully failed attempt at restraining my laughter while encountering JC and Mule's banter while I was reading in public Albeit I did keep my chortling as uiet as was possible in the momentDo I intend to go back and read of the Mitford Years series? Yes Though please pardon me I still shan't guarantee the order I may read them inI received an advance reading copy of this book from the publisher through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program for an honest review
