I read and listened to this book and absolutely loved it. I promised myself that I'd savour these books and not binge them but it's almost impossible not to. I wouldn't suggest starting with this book if you've never read any of the others because I don't feel they can stand alone. Why would you want miss out on all of these books anyway? In this story Father Tim is preparing to go off and do missionary work in Tennessee even though he's experiencing some twinges of doubt. He neglects his health once again and gives all of us a huge scare. We're united with the "man from the attic" from an earlier book as he's finished his term in prison. Father Tim continues his search for Dooley's missing siblings and overall this is another delightful instalment. I'm afraid I've already downloaded the next 2 on Audible, I can't help myself.
