"Bishop?" The voice was a little quavery; for a moment he couldn't place it. "Yes? This is?" "It's Lula Rexford, Bishop. I'm so sorry to bother ya'll on Christmas, but I'm really worried about T-Rex." "What's wrong, Lula? Is he sick?" "He ain't here, is the problem, and he said he'd be back three hours ago! He took his bike out for a spin - got him new do-dads for it, for ...more

This book is most decidedly intended for an LDS audience. This is the fictional story of Bishop James Shepherd who is the spiritual shepherd of a fictional flock in Fairhaven,Alabama. It is the third book in a series entitled "The Fairhaven Chronicles". The best word to describe it I think is charming. I normally steer clear of LDS fiction for the most part, but I was in DB looking for something to read on Sundays and this one caught my eye. I have been pleasantly surprised with how well this ha ...more
"Third verse, same as the first..." these words from an old children's ditty describe my reaction to the third in the Fairhaven Chronicles series by Sharon Downing Jarvis about Mormon Bishop Jim Shepherd and his delightful, though sometimes troubled, flock (pun intended) from the fictional Fairhaven Ward near Birmingham, Alabama. It is just as gentle and kind, just as uplifting, just as positive as the first two books in the series. Some issues held over from the previous books are resolved, new ...more
This is the third book in the Fairhaven Chronicles, and by now the characters are "family." I'm certainly going to have to read the last of the series to find out what happens to all of these people who feel like friends. I liked the surprise at the end.
Love revisiting friends in Fairhaven. So many favorite characters. Buddy Osborne, Ida Lou Reams, and of course Bishop Jim Shepherd. Oscar and I are enjoying this series so much. We remind each other to take Fairhaven when we drive anywhere.
Funny everyday LDS life type of book about a family and their adventures. Cheesy at times, preachy at times, but an easy read & a quick read. Really pretty right on about ward members, callings and their interactions.
This book was better than the second book. I really liked the story line. It still takes me a while to get through these books. But I do enjoy the characters and I want to read the next book.

The book is wonderful. In fact I am through with the whole series. In fact, I've read them twice.

Uplifting, emotional terrific books.

I read three or four of these and like others have commented, not great literature, but positive message, easy to read and comforting.
I enjoyed reading this. The end of the book tied up a lot of loose ends quickly all at once and left other loose ends hanging.
By this book, I was hooked on the series. You do get involved with the characters. Very much like my own life, however.
These are just fun easy to read stories. Follows different people in the ward and how the Bishop helps them.
