"Karon's Mitford series continues, with Father Tim Kavanaugh (an Episcopalian rector in the small Southern village) finding great joy in his new marriage. John McDonough brings the people of Mitford to life through an expressive, but never overstated, reading. His rich, slightly gruff voice never strains or hurries and always succeeds in finding an apt characterization for all the characters whose stories interweave to form this very satisfying novel. Through changes in tone, accents of varying degrees, and portrayal of all the emotions that make up the human condition, McDonough becomes these people, and the listener is quickly entranced. This is an audio experience that will be long remembered. M.A.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
