Jan Karon is one of my favorite authors, and her Mitford series is beloved by many. I wanted to share a few snapshots of our Christmas books we have collected that she has written.
In Shepherd's Abiding, Jan Karon tells the story of Father Tim and Cynthia and their lives in Mitford at Christmastime. It focuses on Father Tim's discovery of an old nativity scene, and the "gift of giving of one's own heart". I am hoping to find time to reread this lovely book, and to share "The Mitford Snowmen" and "Esther's Gift" with my grandchildren as we snuggle up together for stories and Christmas "yummies", as Maya calls them!
