Book Review: Shepherds Abiding

by Jan Karon

Shepherds Abiding

A Partial Synopsis from Good Reads:  Millions of Americans have found Mitford to be a favorite home-away-from-home, and countless readers have long wondered what Christmas in Mitford would be like. The eighth Mitford novel provides a glimpse, offering a meditation on the best of all presents: the gift of one's heart.

My thoughts:  If you read my blog very much, you already know that I adore this charming series of books.  This one is so sweet.  Timothy wants to find a gift worthy of his love for Cynthia.  She wants to do the same for him.  Will they both succeed in delighting the love of their life? 

Well, you'll just have to read the book!  ;-) 

What gift would be worthy for the love of your life?

  1. I've read a few of Jan Karon's books, and I like them too! Hope you're having a good December getting ready for Christmas.

  2. Read O. Henry's short story "The Gift"--similar theme and very moving....
