Review: Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good, by Jan Karon

This is the latest in the Mitford series about Episcopal priest Father Tim, his family, and the people of the tiny village of Mitford, high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Mitford is modeled on the author’s hometown of Blowing Rock in that state. Father Tim finds himself volunteering at the local bookstore to help out the owner, Hope Murphy, who is in the midst of a difficult pregnancy. He also tries to forge a better relationship with his adopted son Dooley’s brother, Sammy, a troubled seventeen year old. I listened to the book on CD narrated by John McDonough who did a superb job. Do yourself a favor and take time for a “visit” to Mitford, you will enjoy it.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
