Father Tim Kavanagh has been asked to “come up higher” more than once. But he’s never been asked to do the impossible-until now. The retired Episcopal priest takes on the revival of a mountain church that’s been closed for forty years. Meanwhile, in Mitford, he’s sent on a hunt for hidden treasure, and two beloved friends are called to come up higher.

This is the last book in this series. I am so very happy that I chose this book to end the year and begin the new one with. It was like being with a trusted friend. All of the characters in this series have been so very interesting and even over a period of a few years, you don’t forget them. (Even if you can’t remember where you put the car keys.) As I was nearing the end of the book, a friend called, or maybe I called her. She was in her car, driving in northern Michigan where she lives. She c
Wow … a new favorite poet (Wordsworth) and many new favorite moments. I absolutely LOVED this book (even more than some of the others) and I don’t think I read it with the rest of the series many years ago.

I feel a spiritual renewal beginning to work in my own life, and I’m loving it!
According to the inside flap, this was the last book in the Mitford series. Apparently the Father Tim series (I’ve read the one where he goes to his hometown, and the trip to Ireland) both happen after this book. Also I’ve already read Come Rain or Come Shine, which happens after this book, and I thought it was a Mitford book?

The reason this only gets 4 stars is because I find it really difficult to figure out what order to read these books in. On Goodreads, the books are conveniently numbered, but no where on the physical book does it say what number in the series it is, so when I’m at the library, I have a hard time figuring out the order.
But still, I recommend the Mitford books to anyone who likes wholesome books, second chances, redemption, and clean old-fashioned jokes.
