In the seventh novel in this clever, gentle, and beloved series about the doings of the citizens of Mitford, Father Tim has a severe diabetic attack, and no one could possibly be surprised; fans of these series are well advised to keep their own insulin handy while reading. Mitford lies in a sweet land that never was, one that millions of us long for. In this episode Cynthia gets a prestigious literary prize while Father Tim languishes in retirement, resisting the Internet and fighting his Little Debbie addiction. One dog is harmed in the making of the story. Otherwise, the tale flows smoothly over a creekbed with just enough gravel on the bottom to make the scene recognizable as real life. Human nature has never showed so well, and John McDonough reads with his usual grace and skill. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
