** spoiler alert ** -(#3 of the Mitford Series) I wasn’t really into this book when I first started to read it. Jan does not do a very good job reminding the reader who the characters are. There are so many. And if you haven’t read the first two and tried to read this, forget it. But as I read more, the book got better. Dooley is going to a private school paid for by Sadie. After a rough start, he is doing well. The reverend and his wife are getting used to being married. They get lost in a cave on a camping trip and it changes their lives. Sadie dies in this one. That’s sad. A young girl is saved from her abusive father and taken in by Olivia. Dooley’s mother finds God but then gets burned by her boyfriend. She is fighting for survival but is bent on turning her life around. Dooley is reunited with his younger brother. The maid has twins. Computers are introduced to Timothy’s secretary who hates them at first but then becomes a wiz. Lots going on in Mitford. It’s a place I wish existed because I would love to go visit it. This is enjoyable
