Follows the series but not necessary to have read the others. It helps because the author does a nice job of filling us in about the lives of the others in town. This was nice with Father Tim working hard on his present for his wife by painting a nativity set which he had never done before with the help of his friends. More about Father Tim's childhood loving his Mom and scared of his Dad than any of the other books. All the residents are as usual excited about the upcoming holiday. ( )

As the cover and title suggest, this is a Christmas themed story. The story begins in October, but Christmas is already on the minds of many in the town of Mitford. You will watch and learn as Father Tim finds a "derelict" nativity scene, with lots of animals and characters, and sets out to repaint and repair the set before Christmas, as a gift to his wife Cynthia. Along the way, others will help him and along the way he will be reminded of his past growing up years as a young child during the Christmas season. And the giving of the gift and Cynthia's gift to him was a very precious scene. ( )

Since he was a boy, Father Tim has lived what he calls “the life of the mind” and has never really learned to savor the work of his hands. When he finds a derelict nativity scene that has suffered the indignities of time and neglect, he imagines the excitement in the eyes of his wife, Cynthia, and decides to undertake the daunting task of restoring it. As Father Tim begins his journey, readers are given a seat at Mitford's holiday table and treated to a magical tale about the true Christmas spirit. ( )

Shepherds Abiding is a simple story that unfolds over a span of ten or twelve weeks—a time in which Father Tim and a lot of villagers discover something new and surprising in themselves. It's October, and already, the excitement of Christmas is in the air.

*happy sigh* This is just such a beautiful book, y'all! Such a sweet, fun, simple Christmas read. Highly recommended! ( )
