A Light in the Window (by Jan Karon)

This is a novel by the American writer Jan Karon, and is the first sequel to 'At Home in Mitford'.

Father Tim, the elderly Anglican priest living in a small village in the USA, has fallen in love with his neighbour Cynthia, but is continually plagued with doubts as to how she views him.

Village life continues as seen through Tim's eyes, as he continues his friendships with a variety of people from all walks of life. The teenage Dooley starts to grow up, too.

Delightful characters and conversations, easy and relaxing reading. Recommended, although it's probably best to have read 'At Home in Mitford' first.

My later and slightly longer review of 'A Light in the Window' is here.
