This is the last in a series of books about the life of priest in a small town--Mitford. I love the relaxing reassuring tone of these books. I come away uplifted and edified as well as entertained. The characters are my age, facing some of the same problems and joys I face. The values are my values. Prayer is a daily part of Father Kavanagh's life and when he is really serious about something he prays "the prayer that never fails"--Thy will not mine be done. What's not to like? There are a few I missed. I intend to keep going back to the library until I've read them all.
