Bought 05 Jun 2007 – Amazon (with a voucher from Xmas/Bday)

I was looking forward to this but with some trepidation, as it’s the last in the Mitford series. Both Father Tim and Violet The Cat are aging, and this is cause for worry – although needlessly, it turns out (sorry if that’s a spoiler but there’s no big events it would spoil). There is death and loss, and I found the religious aspect a bit more prevalent than in previous books. It was quiet and downbeat, with a gentle humour and promise of hope for the future.

There is apparently going to be a new Father Tim series; there was a bit in the back of this one which suggests it’s going back into his previous times. I will look out for these.
