After five crazy years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he's lost his passion. His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion-for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley's brother, Sammy, still enraged by his mother's abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim's prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.

All this as Wanda's Feel Good Café opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own? Millions of fans will applaud the chance to spend time, once more, in the often comic and utterly human presence of Jan Karon's characters. Indeed, they have never been more sympathetic, bighearted, and engaging.

Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 8/17/14
Rating

It has been three long years of waiting and wondering about what Father Tim and the other residents of Mitford have been up to. But the suspense is finally over. With the publication of Somewhere Safe With Somebody Good we finally have our passport into the lovely town that we would all like to call home.

I was reading the book a few days ago while I was in a waiting room. The person next to me made a comment about the thickness of the book and asked what it was about. After taking a second to gather my thoughts I said that it was a novel about the beautiful ebb and flow of everyday life in a small town.

What I left out was that it is a story of ordinary people who draw strength from each other. Of course life in a tiny community can be just as irritating as it is soothing. Anyone who has ever lived in a small town can attest to that fact. But for me I'd love to live in Mitford. Wouldn't it be fun to have lunch with JC, Mule and Father Tim? Maybe become an honorary member of the Turkey Club! I couldn't wait to get my copy of the Mitford Muse. Such a quaint weekly paper, unless the story is about you and the facts aren't quite right.

Of the ten books in this series so far, this is my favorite. Father Tim is no longer a priest at Lord's Chapel, but that doesn't mean his calling to minister has been taken away. In fact I would say that by retiring from the parish he expanded his flock instead of decreased it. This is one of those perfect books that makes you tear up and then laugh. It makes you roll your eyes and then a few pages later you'll be sighing with contentment.

I can hardly wait for you to read the portion that the title comes from . . . truly beautiful. But my absolute favorite saying from this book is "Love is an act of endless forgiveness." And that my friend is what we should all be about.

So put your feet up, snuggle in and journey back to the lovely town of Mitford. Where you will be inspired to live your life loving others because of the One who loved us first.

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
