As much as I hate to say it, author Jan Karon probably should not have tried to continue the Mitford series after such a long hiatus. This book simply did not have anywhere near the charm and impact of her previous books. There were LOTS of characters -- too many to keep straight, really. Also, there were many subplots in the book, but no main plot. That's unusual for this series (and for most novels, for that matter) and it didn't work particularly well. Sigh!

Description from Amazon:

"Welcome back home to Mitford. We’ve been waiting for you…

After five hectic years of retirement from Lord’s Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from the land of his Irish ancestors. While he’s glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing from his life: a pulpit. But when he’s offered one, he decides he doesn’t want it.

For years, he believed he had a few answers. Now he has questions. How can he possibly help Dooley’s younger brother, Sammy, make it through the fallout of a disasterous childhood? Could doing a good deed for the town bookstore be the best thing for his befuddled spirit? And who was riding through town in a limo? Not Edith Mallory.

Then an editorial in the weekly Muse poses a question that sets the whole town looking for answers: Does Mitford still take care of its own?

Now sit back, relax, and discover why USA Today says Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good 'hits the sweet spot at the intersection of your heart and your funny bone.'"
